...I am a Yorta Yorta person...
'My name is Monica Morgan. I am a Yorta Yorta person. We had all our information, all our evidence, all our history, all our struggles documented well before the native title legislation and the Murray Island decision. We were doing it before we even knew there was a Murray Island decision taking place, but I am sure we are not alone. There are a lot of Indigenous peoples around Australia that have always been talking and talking towards the point of one day putting in a claim for land'
