NLC keeps heat on nuclear waste dump push – ABC News

The Northern Land Council (NLC) has again disputed reports about the traditional ownership of the Northern Territory site nominated for a nuclear waste dump.

The NLC says the traditional owners of the site at Muckaty Station are the Ngapa people. It denied a report earlier this week that it had referred to the Ngapa people as a “subgroup” in a legal dispute over ownership of the land, about 100 kilometre north of Tennant Creek. The NLC says the term “subgroup” was used by lawyers for Aboriginal clans opposed to the project. The lawyers say they have documents showing that the Ngapa people do not have exclusive ownership of the site.
