On 7 October 2014, the native title determination known as the Northern Cape York Group #1 was finalised by the Federal court at the Aboriginal community of Injinoo in the Northern Peninsula Area.
Following the first determination had in 2014, the Federal Court later finalised the native title determination listed as the Northern Cape York Group #3 on 26 July 2017.
These determinations successfully proved that the Angkamuthi, Atambaya and Gudang Yadkeykenu are the traditional owners of the Northern Cape York and that their customs and laws are fundamental to their traditional system of ownership. Ipima Ikaya means One Voice or One Talk.
