Losing control of the land had the most devastating impact on the first Australians. The struggle for land rights continues to this day and one of its heroes is Eddie Koiki Mabo. Mabo fought for Australian law to recognise that his people own Murray Island, where they have lived for generations. In 1992, six months after his death, the highest court in the land decides in Mabo's favour.
