Overview

The Alherramp Ilewerr Mamp Arrangkey Tywerl Aboriginal Corporation RNTBC administers land on behalf of the Alherramp/Rrweltyapet, Ilewerr, Mamp/Arrwek, Tywerl, Arrangkey, Anentyerr/Anenkerr and Ntyerlkem/Urapentye Estate Groups. Their native title rights and interests were first recognised in the Napperby Perpetual Pastoral Lease native title determination of 2013.

This matter concerned the first claim over land and waters subject to pastoral leases to the north-west of Alice Springs. The first claim was made by seven groups over approximately 5,600 square kilometres of land and waters within the Napperby pastoral lease and part of the North-West Stock Route (200 kilometres to the north-west of Alice Springs).

In both cases the parties had reached an agreement on the external boundaries of the determination area in which native title existed and on a number of areas within these boundaries which should be excluded from the claim including roads traversing the land, land held in fee simple, areas the subject of pastoral improvements and public works. The determination areas were both subject to pastoral leases issued within the last 20 years. The Court noted that this was only recent history compared with the claimant’s historical relationship with the land.
