AUTHORISATION MEETING FOR A PROPOSED NATIVE TITLE DETERMINATION APPLICATION

31/1/2024

ICN 1163 | ABN 22 965 382 705

PRE-AUTHORISATION MEETING FOR A

NATIVE TITLE DETERMINATION AGREEMENT

Olkola Native Title Group

Cape York United # 1 Native Title Claim (QUD673/2014)

Thursday 15 February 2024

Rydges Esplanade, Cairns


This notice is to advise that Cape York Land Council (CYLC) will hold a pre-authorisation meeting on Thursday 15 February 2024 in Cairns to discuss the proposed authorisation process for the Olkola Native Title Group to authorise the proposed s87A native title agreement for a determination of native title over the Olkola claim area, including the areas jointly held with the neighbouring native title groups, as shown on the map below.


A determination of native title involves a decision of the Federal Court. Determination of native title means that the Federal Court determines (1) who holds native title; (2) what the native title rights are; (3) the area to which the native title rights apply after any determination is made; and (4) which corporation will represent the members of the determined native title group. Following the pre-authorisation meeting on Thursday 15 February 2024, there will be a meeting to authorise the s87A native title agreement on Thursday 29 February 2024, where the Olkola Native Title Group will consider whether to authorise the proposed agreement for a determination of native title. If the Native Title Group decides in the affirmative, the determination will then be sought in the Federal Court.
