‘...Pay respect to the North the South the West and the East
Pay respect to the spirit of this whole country
Freedom in the hearts of the young and brave
Who know little of the journey
of the diggers who gave their lives to the service and the government gains
So that we could dance together
on this beautiful day...’

When we got to Thursday Island there was a celebration going, the Mabo Day Parade. It's named Mabo Day in honour of Eddie Mabo, the man who led the campaign for Indigenous land rights and for his role in winning back some of which was taken more than 200 years ago from the aboriginal people. It was a day full of pride and joy among the locals. .

Birthdays you should know:
To many the name Mabo is synonymous with the famous court seen in the Australian film The Castle in which Denis Denuto closes his argument with “in summing up, it’s the constitution, it’s Mabo, it’s justice, it’s law, it’s the vibe and aah no that’s it, it’s the vibe. I rest my case”. The reality is that Eddie Mabo (29 June 1936 - 21 January 1992) is much more to Australia and Australians than a meme from a movie.
Mabo was born on the island of Mer (part of the Torres Straight islands off the coast of Australia) before finding his way to mainland Australia and gaining work as a Gardiner at James Cook University in Townsville. In 1972, whilst attempting to visit his gravely ill (adopted) father, Mabo was refused permission from the Queensland government to travel back to Mer. His daughter, Gail, states that the incident “fuelled his determination for recognition and equality in society” and ultimately led to his decade long legal battle for political status.
It was in 1981 that Mabo gave his first speech at a land rights conference at the James Cook university regarding traditional land ownership on Mer Island. Present at the speech was a unnamed lawyer who suggested that there should be a test case to claim land rights through the court system. In 1982 Mabo (with the aid of David Passi, Celuia Mapoo Salee, Sam Passi and James Rice, and represented by Ron Castan, Bryan Keon-Cohen and Greg McIntyre) launched the famous “Mabo v Queensland (No 2)” court case (commonly now referred to as the “Mabo case”) in which they challenged the legal doctrine of ‘terra nullius’ and claimed legal ownership of their lands on the island of Mer. Ten years later, in June of 1993 (and thus unfortunately several months after Mabo’s passing) the High Court Of Australia ruled in favour of Mabo and his fellow plaintiffs. The decision is considered by many a landmark case in Australian law and has paved the way for further claims of traditional land rights.

Sunday June 3rd was Mabo Day.
This day acknowledges Eddie Koiko Mabo who fought to overturn the fiction of terra nuillius (land belonging to no one). Sadly Eddie died 5 months before the historic decision was made on June 3 1992 that Native Title does exist.

We walked as a family in the reconciliation walk at Hastings on Sunday to the Willum Wurrain Aboriginal Association.
It was a beautiful morning in the winter sun, with stories and music and smoking ceremony.

A great place to start learning about and connecting with culture is in your own neighborhood. Look locally for ways you can learn and connect and celebrate.

Did you know that 3 June marks Mabo Day, a significant milestone in Australian land law and Indigenous history

On 3 June 1992, the High Court of Australia handed down its decision in Mabo v Queensland, overturning the legal fiction of terra nullius and ruling that Indigenous traditional title to the land had survived British settlement.
Today we honour the Meriam man, Eddie Koiki Mabo, who along with his compatriots from the Torres Strait island of Mer, took his case to the highest court and won.

昨天是澳洲 #國家和解週 的最後一天,在1992年歷史上的這一天,澳洲高等法院裁定並承認原住民及托雷斯海峽島民的土地所有權。這項決定,也促成了澳洲1993年的原住民土地權法。

Yesterday marks the end of #NationalReconciliationWeek in #Australia. On this historic day in 1992, the High Court of Australia recognised that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ had rights to the land. This decision led to Australia’s Native Title Act in 1993. #LearnShareGrow #NRW2018 #MaboDay

Great day out and about

happy Mabo day peoples♥💛❤ Repost @tanay_nays The 3rd of June celebrates Mabo Day and marks the end of Reconciliation Week.

Eddie Koiki Mabo attended a Land Rights conference in 1981 at James Cook University. He delivered a speech explaining his people’s culture, management and ties to the land. This speech ignited enough people’s belief for change and for a solicitor to agree to work with Mr Mabo and take on the high court in what would become Mabo v Queensland.
Mabo lead the Meriam people of Mer Islands (Murray Islands) to challenge the notion of Terra Nullious.
The battle went on for over 10 years, and on this day in 1992 in a landmark 6-1 decision, the high court overturned the doctrine of Terra Nullius and ruled in favour of Native Title.
Mr Mabo did not live to see the outcome of the Mabo v Queensland court case. He passed just a few months earlier at the early age of 55.
