44 In the 1870s at the Fort Point Settlement (now known as Darwin), an alliance was negotiated between the colonisers and the Larrakia, a group whose property rights in the settled region were recognised by the Europeans as against other neighbouring Aboriginal groups, who at times expressed a varied degree of hostile intent toward the ﬂedgling settlement. One of the reasons for the European decision to ally with the Larrakia was their need for a security or military alliance. 45 Wells contends that: the Larrakia made pragmatic decisions about their initial interactions based on prior knowledge and experience of Europeans [gleaned in part from previous ill-fated settlements along the northern coastline], their weapons and their commodities … the land the colonisers were intent on settling was Larrakia country and if Larrakia were determined to survive and stay about their country, then they had to negotiate how they would do it.
Period; nor ways that European imperial powers behaved towards the peoples they encountered in the Far East or the New World; nor, indeed how they behaved towards each other. Nor do we contend in any detailed way with the religious and ideological motivations that might have guided their behaviour, or the technological, scientiﬁc and other changes during that period. Our narrow concern is with some of the effects of developing international law and strategic considerations in those encounters. In the second part of the chapter we discuss the history of Indigenous– colonial relations and the absence of formally recognised treaties in Australia.
These agreements covered a range of subject matter: access (6), consultation protocol (4), development (6), extinguishment (4), government (5), infrastructure (20), and mining (21). Many such native title claims, especially in Queensland (where 32 of the 54 ILUAs were registered), are proceeding through mediation to consent determination. The ILUAs in these instances form part of the package of documents that formalise the resolution of native title determination applications. Alternatively, ILUAs may be ‘stand alone’ agreements which deal with native-title issues independent of the native-title determination process (14).
