'King's Seal reveals the hidden history of Australia's first Aboriginal Land rights, documents the struggle for recognition of rights that were granted then denied to South Australia's Aboriginal people and exposes the breaches occurring today.'

'In 1836, the King of the British Empire (King William IV) enshrined into law the "Letters Patent", the founding document that established the state of South Australia. The King's "Letters Patent" also included a priviso that granted Aboriginal people the legal right to continue to occupy and enjoy their land for always, enshrined in law by the King's seal.'

'175 years later, this film exposes the King's Letters Patent - the denial of rights, conspiracy, treason, theft, murder and breaches perpetrated against South Australia's Aboriginal people.' (Source: King's Seal official website)
