WA Govt hands land over to traditional owners

Extract from Australian Broadcasting Corporation - ABC Online, on May 1st, 2002.

The Western Australian State Government has handed almost three hectares of land, near the WA town of Cue, to its ancestral owners.

The handover is the first move in a government plan to return control of 27 million hectares of crown land to its indigenous ancestral owners.

The land will be progressively transferred from a trust being held by the WA Government.

Today's handover, to the Thoo Thoo Warinha Aboriginal Corporation, includes the site of a hostel housing the corporation's administrative base and the town's original Aboriginal reserve.
