The Larrakia Land Rights Archive

Project Summary

This project seeks to address a significant set of issues surrounding the preservation of legal documents produced in land rights claims in the Northern Territory. Our focus will be a single case study, that can exemplify, and make a unique contribution to, a range of archival and legal problems which are the subject of a growing research field. Our proposed pilot begins from a unique premise that has not yet been centralized in research design in this field: that the materials will be repatriated- returned to country, and made available to those best placed to be the custodians of the knowledge they hold.
