Displacement, replacement and relocation : The Noongar Aborigines’ land claim in Western Australia

Abstract : Displaced on their own “country” by colonisation, the Noongar Aborigines of the south-west of Western Australia have lodged the Single Noongar Claim, an application for determination of native title, to seek the recognition of their customary land rights. Through that process, they were confronted to a second displacement by the respondents to their claim who tried to deny them this recognition. But the Noongars found ways to relocate themselves territorially, historically, socially, economically and politically on their “country”.
