Detailed Information:
The full name of this party to the Small Scale Mining & Exploration Activities - Wakaman People Indigenous Land Use Agreement (National Native Title Tribunal File No. QI2007/036) is 'John Alvoen, Raelene Madigan, Desmond Bowen, William Thomas & Rhonda Grace Cameron on behalf of themselves and the Wakaman People.'

Background on the Wakaman People and native title

The Wakaman People were involved in the Wakaman People #2 native title claim, which was filed with the Federal Court of Australia as proceeding QUD 158 of 2004 on 9 August 2004. The claim relates to land in the vicinity of Chillagoe and Mungana in the state of Queensland.

While this claim is still described as unregistered by the National Native Title Tribunal, the Wakaman native title claimants successfully argued in Wakaman People #2 v Native Title Registrar [2006] FCA 1198 (5 September 2006) that the Registrar had erred in refusing them registration. In this proceeding, Kiefel J proposed orders requiring the Registrar to accept their registration application and enter the details of their claim on the Native Title Claims Register. Further submissions as to when the latter order should come into force were sought in Wakaman People #2 v Native Title Registrar [2006] FCA 1251 (21 September 2006).

The Wakaman People #2 native title claim has now been struck out.
