Overview

The Mokwiri Aboriginal Corporation administers land on behalf of members of six language affiliated groups described as the Yupungathi, Tjungundji, Taepadhighi, Mbakwithi, Thankakwithi and Anathangay. Their native title rights and interests were recognised in the Northern Cape York #2 Native Title Claim Group determination of 20 June 2014.

The court recognised that the applicants held exclusive native title rights over an area described in the case as Schedule 1, Part 1 and that the applicants held non-exclusive native title rights over an area described in the case as Schedule 1, Part 2. The determination area includes land and waters in the north west of the Cape York Peninsula, lying to the north between the Ducie and Wenlock Rivers and Cox Creek and Mission River and Myall Creek in the south.
