I believe that between 1976 and 1978 Robert hardy Paterson Senior, was residing in Yarrabah at the time of a court case he was involved ( believed to occurred between time frames mentioned above.) The Local Aboriginal Land Act was what we believe the court case was in reference to. We also would like any reference to other cases that were conducted under the Local Government Aborigines Land Act,
At that time we did not have the rights or education to follow the complex legislation that governed us. Hence we need support in our difficulties to get answers for the oral history that our elders are claiming .
We believee Kunggandji Gurrabuna People,& Robert Patterson Senior, won a case before the Aurukun Nation (Wik) did o0n 22 May 1978.
Please excuse our difficulties of no knowing file numbers etc but we are now trying to take control of our lands and our communities.
We believe that this court case happened between time frames mentioned and that Mr Patterson had versed the Yidinji? Indinji nation, in which he proved that the Kunggandji Gurrabuna People were found to be the first Aboriginal nation to occupy ing the eastern coastal areas, know as Cairns and Yarrabah.

We urgently humbly request that these documents be accessible to the Kunggandji Gurrabuna Kimuy People to advise the Australian Federal Government

Yours faithfully,

Sarah Addo

Kunggandji Gurrabuna Kimuy People & Respondent to the Native Title Court matter for Cairns, Australian Federal Court
