Abstract:

The story of the public and private life of Eddie Koiki Mabo, telling how Mabo pursued the case to have his ownership of property on Murray Island legally recognised, and how that claim grew into a case that changed Indigenous rights in Australia. In June 1992, five months after Eddie Mabo died, aged 55, the High Court of Australia upheld his claim that Murray Islanders held 'Native Title' to three islands on the eastern fringe of the Torres Strait. This ended the theory of 'terra nullius', or land belonging to no-one at the time of white settlement.
