Indigenous Land Use Agreements: A Legislative Model Provision for agreement making between Indigenous and non-Indigenous parties is made under the Native Title Act 1993. Indigenous Land Use Agreements are of interest in this context because they can facilitate agreements about native title without the need for native title determinations. As a result of the 1998 amendments there are now three types of Indigenous Land Use Agreements provided for under the act: • body corporate agreements: these agreements are relevant where native title determinations have been made over an entire area and there are registered native title bodies corporate in relation to the area.

I favour an agreement that is supported by the constitution and this paper deals with that approach. However some brief discussion of the other three forms a treaty might take is included. An agreement under international law in the form of a treaty The immediate issue implicit in this approach is the continued existence of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander sovereignty. This option is a proposition that would have two sovereign parties, the commonwealth of Australia and the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who would enter into an agreement enforceable under international law.

There are two ways in which this long term model of treaty-making could be altered to pass on the benefits of a treaty to Indigenous people and their communities more quickly. The first is to ensure that agreement making that is already occurring at a local and regional level—whether under native title legislation or through other mechanisms— is allowed and encouraged to continue while federal negotiations about process and framework take place. This means that agreement making that can achieve practical outcomes for Indigenous people will not be put on hold while a national process is established, something that may take decades.
