Abstract

This article presents the results of a survey dealing with the role of Kaumātua in Treaty of Waitangi Claims. The author raises a number of concerns – most importantly whether enough older Māori feel confident or knowledgeable enough to contribute to the process. The survey also reveals that tensions exist from the exclusion of younger Māori from the process.

Keywords: Treaty of Waitangi, survey, Kaumātua, Māori
