The landmass now known as Australia was the sole domain of Indigenous peoples for 60,000+ years. We know from oral histories that landcare regimes, laws, and contestations were integral to Indigenous lives. With many waves of British and European invasion, and subsequently government, from the 18th Century, Indigenous peoples were denied their voices, choices, and fulfilment of their traditional rights – in which landcare was a deeply religious, cultural responsibility. Since 1992, significant legal precedents and legislative changes have enabled varying degrees of change to the colonists’ all-powerful status quo. It is not an easy task, reversing the impacts of 200+ years of abuse, denial, exile, and trauma. Prescribed bodies corporate are the entities required, by statute, to manage native title rights and interests at the juncture of land and cultural heritage. There are plentiful problems and polemics, just as there are slow and steady triumphs. Working in this space requires a certain resilience and perspective; but above it all, there is immense potential to facilitate meaningful change at grassroots level.
