The scope and frequency of this occurring is likely to increase as mining activity expands. Lack of recognition about Kokatha's title and legal rights has a stressful impact on our people in many ways. Kokatha people hold knowledge about the land in language, stories and ritual and history) - http://www.kokatha.com.au/
