Even before the passing of the Native Title Act, the Dieri People were active in protecting their land...
Under the guidance of Edward Lander, Christopher Dodd, Shane Kemp and other Dieri People set up the North East Aboriginal Lands Corporation Inc to liasi with Santos who was carrying out petroleum exploration work over Dieri land without consulting Dieri People. As a result of setting up this corporation, they were able to negotiate an agreement with Santos that saw Dieri People for the first time being able to carry out heritage inspections prior to petroleum exploration work being undertaken.
The Dieri Aboriginal Corporation RNTBC is the registered native title body corporation representing the Dieri People who are and always have been the traditional owners of the Dieri land.
