Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content

This paper examines contemporary experiences of Māori, Pacific and Indigenous peoples in the management of natural resources. Against a backdrop of increased globalisation, Te Tiriti o Waitangi/Treaty of Waitangi issues, and state resource policies and legislation, Māori, Pacific and Indigenous peoples continue to assert their mana as kaitiaki/guardians in the management of their lands, waters and resources. Through this paper we reflect on the impacts of colonisation, globalisation and other external forces, on Māori, Pacific and Indigenous communities and their resources. We also use a comparative framework to review relevant case studies from local, national and global contexts.
