Abstract: This paper is a conference speech which follows the negotiation of the Nharnuwangga, Wajarri and Ngarla native title settlement from the perspective of one of the native title holders, Michelle Riley. Riley discusses the changing experiences and expectations of the native title holders during the negotiating process and after the outcome. She criticises the administrative obligations required by native title holders under the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth), the failure of government to fund the corporations responsible for these obligations, and a particular aspect of the agreement which requires native title holders to take out public liability insurance as a condition of accessing lands leased by pastoral stations.
