This thesis investigates Murri involvement in the Migaloo Supreme Court System. It offers alternative explanation for the crimes and shows that most of these crimes can be labelled resistance strategies. Customary law comparisons are drawn where applicable, showing the ineptness of the Migaloo legal system.
