    ‘Against native title’ is about a divisive native title claim in the outback town of Ceduna, where the claims process has thoroughly reorganised local Aboriginal identities over the course of the past decade. The central character in this story is senior Aboriginal woman Sue Haseldine, a self-styled charismatic rebel and master storyteller. Sue and her extended family have experienced native title as an unwelcome imposition: something that has emanated from the state and out of which they gained only enemies. They rail against the logic of native title while opposing the extensive mineral exploration underway in this region.

    But this is not simply a tale of conflict. Threaded throughout is the story of a twice-yearly event called ‘rockhole recovery’; trips that involve numerous days of four-wheel drive travel to a series of permanent water sources and Dreaming sites. ‘Against native title’ captures the energy that fuels this unique, small-scale initiative. Through rockhole recovery Sue Haseldine and her family continue to care for, and maintain connections to country, outside of the native title process.
