Indigenous engagement on economic development: Indigenous engagement on economic development Presentation by Nolan Hunter CEO of Kimberley Land Council What is native title?: What is native title? Slide3: A form of land title that recognises the unique ties Aboriginal groups have to land and waters. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people can apply to the courts to have their native title rights recognised under Australian law. Native title was first recognised by the High Court of Australia in 1992 with the Mabo decision. Native title conditions: Native title conditions Native title holders have the right to be compensated if governments acquire their land or waters for future developments. Native title can co-exist with some forms of land title (such as pastoral leases) but it is extinguished by others (such as freehold). It can take Aboriginal people 14-20 years to get their native title. Native title in the Kimberley: Native title in the Kimberley The Kimberley region has a very active native title profile.  To date, 26 of the 57 native title determinations made in Western Australia have been in the Kimberley region and two major land use agreements have also been negotiated. Native title has been recognised across 80% of the Kimberley. Kimberley Aboriginal people have native title over land with great economic potential. Native Title and economic development : Native Title and economic development Native title should not be seen as a barrier to development, but essential to it. Empowering native title holders to use their land rights is fundamental to developing the north and closing the gap. Indigenous Australians want to work with government and businesses to find ways to leverage native title in order to develop the north.
