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.
