51. NO.4 Yolŋu Estate Owners confused and worried

Richard Trudgen and Nikunu Yunupingu talk about the confusion around the Northern Lands Council and the lack of information Yolngu Estate owners are receiving about their land and their rights to their land.

Nikunu Yunupingu talks through how the Northern Lands Council is speaking to the mining companies, government and stake holders, but not to the Estate Holders. This is also an issue with changes to legislation and how proper consultation is not met with Indigenous and First Nations People.

They also speak about the use of good media services and how important they are to deliver information to Indigenous people all over. How these media services can be used to deliver important information and how this platform can be used by the Northern Lands Council, government and other Aboriginal organisations.

Richard explores issues with Nikunu on Balanda systems that hinder the delivery of information to Indigenous people. They also explore issues on Inter-tidal Zone, Burial Place and the confusion around these topic and lack of information.
