|Subtitle||A meeting of two laws: a cross cultural legal education video in Yolngu Matha|
In 2006, legal services from the Top End of the NT travelled to communities in North Eastern Arnhem Land to provide information about key legal issues in the area and evaluate the unmet legal need in the region. It was identified that community members in the region did not have access to legal education about their rights and responsibilities under the Australian legal system in a language and context they understand.
This DVD was developed in response to that need. The DVD was developed in conjunction with Marthakal Homelands Resource Centre, Duduyngu Pty Ltd, local film makers and clan leaders and filmed at Galiwin'ku. The DVD draws on the existing knowledge of structures of Yolngu law and governance in the region to explain foundational concepts about the Australian legal system.
While an intended audience for this DVD is Yolngu people in the region, it is also important that those administering the Australian legal system understand the law and governance perspective of people in the region. This DVD can assist in enhancing cross cultural understandings and respect between the co-existing Yolngu and Balanda systems of law. [Darwin] :NT Legal Aid Commission, 2008.
