Western Australian Government scraps Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Laws

Produced by Issac Nowroozi for ABC RN

The Western Australian Government has scrapped its Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Laws, reverting back to the 1972 model with some amendments.

The laws were in effect for just five weeks, and designed to avoid a repeat of Rio Tinto’s destruction of 46-thousand-year-old culturally significant caves at Juukan Gorge in 2020.

Guest: Kado Muir, Chair of the National Native Title Council
