Abstract

The third part of the Waitangi Tribunal's Te Urewera report has be released in a pre-publication edition. Part III is primarily concerned with issues relating to Te Urewera National Park and the background of events that led to the establishment of the park. The four chapters in Part III tell the story of the transformation from self-governing native reserve to national park. There are four key themes that run though these chapters: 1. The Crown's defeat of promised self-governance; 2. The Crown's repeated broken promises; 3. Extensive land loss; 4. The creation of a national park in Te Urewera which has come to symbolize dispossession.

Keywords: Treaty of Waitangi, indigenous cultures, treaty settlement, Te Urewera
