Rights have lives. Youthful boldness often turns into atrophied middle age. The second half of the twentieth century began in the dismal aftermath of a devastating world war and ended in the full pitch of a prosperous globalized economy. In these 50 years the legal position of the tribes changed enormously, with aboriginal title being an important turning point. Tribes went from a languid legalism of neglect and lowly place on the national agenda to centre stage, active rights-players endowed with, if not over-burdened by, rights (or ‘lawfare’).

The circumstances of the tribal individual and the vesting of vast discretion in official figures drove law-making rather than the continuance and fostering of an historical relationship between tribal and settler polities which, anyway, hearkened back mostly to an imperial era that in the settler polity’s mind had passed. That mindset described a constitutional transition for the loyalist settler polity (from Crown colony to independent Dominion) that the tribes, also subjects of the Crown, had not solicited and entailed political distinctions internal to the nature of the Crown (and with whose imperial manifestation many had made treaties) that the tribes were not minded to make.
