Series finale of First Australians on Maori TV

Tuesday May 18 at 8.30 PM on Maori Television

Series finale! Tonight: Eddie Koiki Mabo fights for Australian law to recognise that his people own Murray Island.

The outcome overturns the notion that the land belonged to no-one at the time of white settlement.
