Eddie Koiki Mabo (known as Koiki) is remembered for his commitment and tireless effort to educate others about the rights and culture of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Koiki famously challenged the Australian legal system and won his people's case for land ownership. The Mabo case (1992) was one of the most significant turning points for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander.
