Australia’s Mabo Day commemorates the courageous efforts of Mer Island man Eddie Koiki Mabo to overturn the legal fiction of terra nullius, or ‘land belonging to no-one’. This campaign for Indigenous land rights led to a landmark decision of the High Court of Australia. Mabo and some of his fellow Mer Islanders began their legal fight for ownership of their lands in 1983 and, nearly a decade later, on June 3, 1992, the court decided in favour of Mabo and the others. This decision is celebrated every year, on June 3, as Mabo Day.
Mark this achievement at your school, as one of our dates to celebrate, with an Indigenous Infusion workshop by a local Indigenous presenter.
