A former band member of Yothu Yindi has vowed to fight on ­despite another defeat for members of his clan in a multi-­million-dollar land rights battle.

Key figures in Arnhem Land’s powerful Rirratjingu clan group have been in dispute for years with the Gumatj clan, the region’s predominant traditional Aboriginal force, and the Northern Land Council.
