Mabo Day History
Mabo Day commemorates Eddie Koiki Mabo and his decade-long effort to make the Australian Government officially recognise that his people own Mer Island. On 3 June 1992, the High Court of Australia acknowledged that Mabo and his people had traditional land ownership agreements and that it was up to the people of Mer Island to determine who owned land today.
Mabo Day has been celebrated in Australia since 2002 as a turning point in indigenous peoples' rights in Australia. It is celebrated annually on June 3 as part of National Reconciliation Week.
