Summary
Refers specifically to the trial judge saying that native title in the Yorta Yorta claim had been 'washed away in the tide of history'; sets out the origins of this metaphor in relation to legislation; discusses an 1881 petition in which the Yorta Yorta sought a grant of land 'to cultivate and raise stock'; concludes that it was not so much the tide of history that denied people their rights, but that it was the decision of a human being
