What is Mabo?


An obscure Australian slang word used to define the act of taking something that isn't yours and claiming it as your own. Derived from the Aboriginal land rights activist, Eddie Mabo. Used in verb form, it is a synonym for 'plagiarise'. Used in a humorous context rather than as a racial slur.

Sally shamelessly Mabo'ed her friend's English assay.
