Yued Indigenous Land Use Agreement
« All the land and water that begins at the junction of the extension of the northern border of coorov`s Shire, where the 3 Nautical Mile Limit is a point located at a present northern border of the Native Title Determination Application WAD6192/1998 Yued (WC1997/071) and generally extends to the east, generally to the southeast, generally to the southwest and generally west along the boundaries of this native title provision application at the intersection with the 3 Nautical Mile Limit. Then, in general, northwest along this 3 mile nautical mile limit back to the starting point.  The settlers, attracted to the region by their fertile land and continued growth of the aim fields, began their pastoral work in two towns in the Yued region, Moora and Gin.  The Governor of South Australia and New Zealand, George Grey, noted that the region was a place where « more has been done here to ensure the supply of the soil through hard manual labor than I could have achieved with the power of the uncivilized man. »  In 1846, the first permanent settlers arrived in this area. As part of the Yued Native Title Agreement, the region begins on the coast of Western Australia and extends inland and covers about 22,000 square kilometres of land.  Cities in this region are Leeman, Jurien Bay, Cervantes, Two Rocks, Toodyay, Gingin, Callingir, Dalwwallinu, Coorow and Moora.  The official description of the Native Title Agreement on the Yued region is as follows: An application to register a territory agreement with the Registrar for the native title must include either the following: if appropriate transport is provided, the Court has found it « entirely appropriate » to hold authorization meetings in the countryside, in or near the country envisaged in an ILUA. The Tribunal found that it had done little to help with the argument that the authorization session in Perth (for the Whadjuk ILUA) attracted more than 100 fewer participants than the authorization session which took place 250 km from Perth to Katanning (for the Wagyl Kaip – Southern Noongar ILUA). Several geographical sites are listed on the Aboriginal Heritage Lists under the Yued Indigenous Land Use Agreement, indicating its importance to the Yued people. See the list below. In 1845, a Catholic missionary party, led by the Spanish Benedictine monk Rosendo Salvado, settled on the banks of the Moore River.  Salvado aimed to equip Aboriginal people with Western capacities such as agriculture and Christian beliefs, without compromising their indigenous identity.  Salvado recruited yueds from the towns of Gin Gin and Moora, who provided them with housing and missionary land to practice agricultural skills and offered other employment opportunities by hiring them as missionary employees.
 The municipality of New Norcia has led to the development of the city of New Norcia , one of the most important cities in the Yued region.
