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.
