93 indexed pages. Among the most prominent participants in the public debate over Wik has been the author of this text, Frank Brennan, a Jesuit priest and lawyer who has long argued for Aboriginal land rights. In 1982 five Torres Strait Islanders, including Eddie (Koiki) Mabo, began legal proceedings to establish title for the Meriam people to Murray (Mer) Island. The historic 1992 Mabo decision in the High Court rejected the doctrine of terra nullius, the notion that Australia did not belong to anyone at the time of European settlement. This rejection of terra nullius meant the Australian legal system recognised that Indigenous ownership of land may have continued after the British colonisation of Australia.
