Land Rights News was first printed in 1976 and is Australia's longest-running Aboriginal newspaper, telling stories from remote Aboriginal lands from across the Northern Territory.

In this final edition for 2017, there's a look at the McArthur River Mine compensation talks; Project Sea Dragon, which is planned to deliver a massive pawn farm producing 10,000 tonnes of black tiger prawns a year; and discuss the fracking interim report of the Scientific Enquiry.

Barry Hansen asks 'Where does the money go?' and states "There is a desperate need for an independent statutory monitoring body with the capacity and authority to analyse and report on the budgets and subsequent expenditure of each State and Terriotry as they affect Indigenous people."
