Native Title to become national path to indigenous land acquisition?

After years of bitter conflict there's no place in Australia where changes to the Native Title legislation and management are more relevant than in Alice Springs.
On the 20th anniversary of the Mabo High Court decision, the Federal Government's objections are clearly to morph Native Title into a path for Indigenous people to acquire land, across the nation, similar to the way landrights were making it possible in the Territory and parts of South Australia. Meanwhile, around the country the subject seems to be a yawn: the telemovie Mabo, directed by Alice Springs' own Rachel Perkins (Bran Nue Dae), flopped on the ABC, according to The Australian, rating 544,000. It's unfair to a well-made  story about a battler who doesn't give up, starring Jimi Bani (The Straits) as Eddie and Deborah Mailman as Bonita. The sometimes dry legal cases in Queensland and finally the High Court – changing Australia's history – are lightened by the touching love story. ERWIN CHLANDA reports.
