'The Yolngu and their Land is about the Aboriginal system of tenure in the Northeast of Arnhem Land. From an economy based entirely on hunting and gathering, this community of some 1000 Yolngu speakers has become increasingly involved in the international economy. The transformation began after the establishment of a mission station on the land of one of the clans, and was accelerated with the establishment of a large bauxite mine, processing plant, and the attendant creation of a full scale town with a population of 3500 non-Aborigines'.
