Te Papa Tongarewa Treaty Debate Series 2012: WAI 262 Waitangi Tribunal Report

Chaired by historian Dr Claudia Orange, the first debate (29 January 2012) features Justice Joe Williams and public law specialist Mai Chen discussing the Waitangi Tribunal’s long-awaited first “whole of government” report: “Aotearoa Tenei – this is New Zealand” (also known as the Matauranga Maori/ Flora and Fauna claim). (53′18″ – Radio New Zealand)

A bit disappointing, though, that the actual claimant group themselves (including Claimant whanau/ iwi of Ngati Kuri) were not invited to participate in this debate.  A bit bizzare, really.  But worth a listen, none the less.
