Title: Indigenous Peoples' Ownership and Management of Mountains: The Aotearoa/New Zealand Experience
Authors: Ruru, Jacinta
Issue Date: 1-Oct-2004
Publisher: Indigenous Law Journal
Abstract: In 1840, the British Crown guaranteed to Māori, the Indigenous people of Aotearoa/New Zealand, the continued right to exercise tino rangatiratanga (self-determination) over their own taonga (treasures). This article assesses the historic and current legislative reality for giving effect to this guarantee in the context of the treasured landscapes of mountains. Throughout the world, mountain ownership and management has become an integral part of many Indigenous peoples’ struggles for self-determination. While this article has a narrow domestic focus, the struggle here told, which is illuminated through legislative examination, will be of comparative interest to many jurisdictions.
