Land is what we do: Paul Morris

“When you look at it, this land was always ours.” Uncle Paul Morris works for the Metropolitan Local Aboriginal Land Council. He speaks of the objectives and tasks of the land council, the ways money complicates claiming and ownership, the tensions between generational desires for how to manage land ownership, and the fears of some non-Aboriginal people over land claims and ownership under the NSW Aboriginal Land Rights Act.
