Wik vs QueenslandDocumentaries
In the wake of the High Court’s landmark 1996 decision to grant native title co-existence to the Wik People of Far North Queensland, a small community becomes embroiled in a divisive national debate with far-reaching consequences.
Director Dean Gibson looks back at this remarkable period in the state’s recent past. When the High Court of Australia ruled in favour of an Indigenous community’s land rights claim around Aurukun in Cape York in 1996, the community found resistance from the Federal Government.
