Our Key Focus Areas


The Native Title Act 1993 (Cth) was introduced following the landmark Mabo decision to provide for the recognition of the prior rights and interests held by First Nations in Australia’s lands and waters. South Australian Native Title Services (SANTS) Ltd, as the native title service provider for South Australia, is committed to the recognition and protection of native title rights and interests. The acknowledgement of culture, kinship and country of First Nations is fundamental in rectifying past injustices. Native title provides an important foundation for First Nations to strengthen their nationhood, their regional presence and to achieve diverse community aspirations. At SANTS, we seek to listen to and work with native title claimants and native title holders so that they can self-determine, govern, lead, grow and succeed. These are principles we hold close in fulfilling our purpose and role.



SANTS acknowledges that the land on which our office is based is the traditional lands for the Kaurna people and we respect their spiritual and cultural relationship with their country.
