Kariyarra Native Title Determination Video

The Kariyarra people  celebrated the recognition of their determination of native title by the Federal Court on 13 December 2018.

About 140 people attended the on-Country Court hearing at the Civic Gardens in Port Hedland. It has been a 20 year-long journey for the Kariyarra people to achieving native title recognition.
