Podcast No.53 Nikunu Yunupingu and Richard Trudgen discuss the difference between Native Title and Land Rights Act, these English words are very confusing to most Yolŋu people.
Podcast No.54 Nikunu Yunupingu and Richard Trudgen work through the meaning of Tribunal, (referring to the National Native Title Tribunal), and how this affects the community.
Maratja Dhamarrandji and Richard Trudgen discuss the ongoing confusion about who the real landowners are, and who are the TOs, as the Lands Council calls them, or the ‘Traditional Owners’. One of the big problems is mainstream Australians (Balanda) think Yolŋu law is just some little thing, rather than a very complex legal system full of its own witnesses, evidences and checks and balances. Even anthropologists, and some Yolŋu people themselves, do not understand the complexities of Yolŋu law, so they ask Balanda lawyers from Canberra, Sydney, Melbourne etc., to tell them who the traditional landowners are.
