|Abstract:||This essay examines some of the cultural underpinnings of contemporary Yolŋu calls for the comprehensive recognition of their full political rights and legal jurisdiction over northeast Arnhem Land by Australian governments. Arnhem Land is an Aboriginal Land Trust that spans some 96,786 square kilometres in the tropical northeast of Australia’s Northern Territory. It is currently home to some 11,000 indigenous Australians—including some 7000 Yolŋu (People) in northeast Arnhem Land—whose hereditary ownership of land and marine estates in the region predates European settlement in Australia from 1788 by scores of millennia.|
