2022 marks 30 years since Torres Strait Islander, Eddie Koiki Mabo, and a group of four Meriam people won in a case against the State of Queensland, for land they knew was traditionally theirs. The fight for Mer, in the Eastern Island group of the Torres Strait, would take a decade and end up dispelling any notion that Australia was ‘terra nullius’ before British colonisation.
