The Ngarrindjeri Aboriginal Corporation RNTBC acts as agent for the native title rights and interests of the Ngarrindjeri people. The determination area for Part A is located east of Adelaide, from Murray Bridge southwest to Cape Jervis and southeast almost to Tintinara. Part B of the determination is on-going.

The native title rights and interests of the Ngarrindjeri people were recognised in Ngarrindjeri and Others Native Title Claim on the 14th of December 2017. The determination granted the Ngarrindjeri people non-exclusive rights including the right to access and move around the Native Title Land, hunt, fish and gather, share and exchange, use Natural Water Resources, cook and light fires for ceremonial purposes, engage in cultural activities and protect cultural sites.

Australia’s laws and policies prevent First Nations from fully participating in, and benefiting from, decisions about water. In fact, Indigenous peoples hold less than 1% of Australia’s water rights.

On a momentous day for the Ngarrindjeri people, as Darrell Sumner stepped up to the microphone, the emotion written on his face was sadness.He looked out at hundreds of faces – friends, family, supporters – and, beyond them, the River Murray and a single pelican which floated past.A Federal Court hearing on the riverbank had just finished; a 2000-page document had been delivered to the legal team representing the Ngarrindjeri people.Within its pages lay final proof of their traditional ownership of 578 parcels of land and water within the Murraylands, Coorong and Fleurieu – their native title rights.
