A land rights claim was placed on a particular parcel of land, including a small river. A successful claim will mean that the land is granted to the local Aboriginal land council (LALC). Membership of the LALC is based on an Aboriginal person's residence within the boundary of the LALC, or alternatively, based on that person's association with that area. Traditional connection to the land within the boundaries of the LALC is not required for membership. In this scenario, imagine that the majority of the membership of the LALC consists of Aboriginal people who do not have a traditional association ith the parcel of land.
