Native title is held by Indigenous peoples who have maintained a substantial connection with land or water according to their traditional laws and customs.

This test, derived from the Mabo decision, is reinforced in the Native Title Act. Any person who wishes to assert native title can apply to the Federal Court for a determination that it exists.
