Summary
Examines the Yorta-Yorta Native Title claim and highlights the fact that in order to claim native title, Indigenous people need to confront a dominant western legal culture which is unable to adapt to a system of complex Indigenous identity markedly different from its own; argues that the perpetuation of representations inherited from the history of colonisation created circumstances in which western constructs combined with the practice of settler colonialism and negative media representations to pervert the course of justice in the Yorta-Yorta case
