Ko Aotearoa Tēnei – This is New Zealand/Aotearoa long awaited report of the Waitangi Tribunal on a number of claims about law and policy affecting Māori culture and identity. The Tribunal has painted New Zealand as poised at crossroads in race relations and the nation’s sense of identity. The Tribunal’s prescription, based on the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi, is to perfect a Treaty based partnership so that Māori interests are better understood and provided for.
