Land RightsLand Rights Petition

22 September – 16 November
Northern Territory Library, Parliament House

The Northern Territory Library will be displaying a copy of a unique 1972 Land Rights Petition. The petition, signed by 1,000 Aboriginal people from across Australia, is one of the most important documents in the history of the struggle for land rights. Activist Bill Day worked with Larrakia people and the Gwalwa Daraniki Association in Darwin to create the petition which was posted to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The petition, now held and carefully restored by the National Archives of Australia, called for land rights and political representation for the Aboriginal people of Australia.
