Māori Traditional Cultural Expressions and the Wai 262 Report: Looking at the Details


Lai, Jessica Christine (2012). Māori Traditional Cultural Expressions and the Wai 262 Report: Looking at the Details. i-call Working Paper Series 02, Universität Luzern.

Abstract

On 2 July 2011, the Waitangi Tribunal delivered the Wai 262 report to the New Zealand Government. After 20 years of deliberation, the report is monumental in both substance and symbolism. Making recommendations as to the place of Māori culture in New Zealand, as guaranteed by Article 2 of the Treaty of Waitangi, the report has the potential to change how Māori cultural heritage is used in the future, including with regard to research practice, trade and intellectual property rights. This paper analyses the recommendations made over traditional cultural expressions, including fixed and non-fixed forms (taonga works), the related traditional knowledge (mātauranga Māori) and hybrid uses of Māori motifs (taonga-derived work). In doing so, it attempts to address and fill in the details left out by the Tribunal. This is followed by a discussion on whether the recommendations are compliant with New Zealand’s international obligations.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
