The Australian system of Native Title has let us down since it first began, by refusing
to register our family group claim.
The Native Title legal system then enforced an amalgamation of our claim with other tribes,
which distorted tribal land boundaries,
allowing government to approach the wrong people in
Consultation about the Yumburra, Yellabinna, Pureba region.
The Native Title regime didn't show respect to our elders; to our culture.
Last year the government gathered Googatha Elders from all around at Spear Creek
to mark out our traditional boundaries for the Native Title system.
When it was done they ignored them as they did about 4 years before at Glendambo.
In the early nineteen nineties after the enforced Native Title amalgamation, the Yellabinna, region was degazetted
by the South Australian government to change it from a National Park to a Regional Reserve so as to allow mining exploration
licenses to be granted within.
