"Attorney-General Nicola Roxon has flagged changes to the native title system on the 20th anniversary of Australia's historic Mabo ruling. Ms Roxon says the laws Eddie 'Koiki' Mabo fought for have provided economic benefits and ensured Indigenous Australians have access to their traditional lands. But she says the system has been slower than many people expected and there are improvements that can be made."
