Changes in New Zealand society over the last three to four decades have seen the Maori population of the Country re-emerge as a people. These changes have been varied, complex, and interrelated. This chapter will summarize some developments as they affect Maori culture in the broad sense. The exercise is an ambitious one and will necessarily omit certain developments. The overall objective is to present a survey and commentary on Maori cultural heritage law and policy that will furnish a useful comparison concerning the cultural heritage of other indigenous peoples.
