2022 Mabo Lecture

June 3 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm AEST

Join award-winning journalist and author, Stan Grant, as he presents JCU’s 2022 Mabo Lecture, marking the 30th anniversary of the Mabo Decision.

James Cook University’s association with Eddie Koiki Mabo is an incredible legacy, having played an important part in Koiki’s fight for Land Rights. The University provided the environment and context in which discussions could be had, and staff and student involvement in the coordination of the original land rights conference that sparked the legal action.

The recognition of native title by the High Court of Australia in 1992 and the Keating Government’s subsequent Native Title Act 1993 were important steps forward in our country’s reconciliation with Australia’s Indigenous peoples.
