Indigenous peoples’ rights to mineral resources is a controversial issue around the world, and nowhere more so than in Aotearoa New Zealand and Australia. This presentation will examine the differences and similarities in the recognition afforded to Indigenous peoples’ rights to mineral resources in Aotearoa New Zealand and Australia. In particular, it will explore the different claims to mineral ownership that have been made by Indigenous peoples in these countries and how the courts and governments of these states have variously responded to these. Additionally, it will examine the different processes and mechanisms that exist for Indigenous peoples’ participation and involvement in mineral development decisions. Areas of ongoing contention over mineral rights for Indigenous people in these two countries will be highlighted.
