Māori development

Pae Matatū: sustaining the Māori estate - Professor Mason Durie

The lecture will consider the sustainability of the Māori estate for future generations. It will conclude that the Māori estate is neither finite nor bounded by time. Even before 2020 the estate will include land, forests, fisheries, waterways, radio frequencies, real estate, shares in national and international ventures, and cultural heritage. Global forces such as climate change and economic crises, national priorities that discount indigenous resources, and an increasing number of people entitled to succeed will challenge the viability of the Māori estate. But wise governance by marae trustees, trustees for land, board directors, and Runanga representatives has the potential to lead to an expanded estate which is future proofed against erosion, devaluation and alienation.

Pae ora: Māori health horizons - Professor Mason Durie

The lecture will consider the broad approaches to Māori health over the past two decades and the gains that have resulted. But the primary focus will be on the future and the consequences of global, local, environmental, and economic determinants on health. There are three main conclusions: first whānau can make the most significant difference to Māori health and wellbeing; second, whanau empowerment should be a driving goal; third, the future is something that can be created, not simply endured.

Pae mana: Waitangi and the evolving state - Professor Mason Durie

The lecture will focus on the relationship between Māori and the Crown in a post-settlement environment. It will raise questions about the constitutional position of Māori beyond 2020, the relevance of the Treaty of Waitangi as a platform for forward development and the ways in which indigeneity will be valued in the future. The implications for Māori if New Zealand were to become a republic will be discussed in the context of Aotearoa as an evolving democracy in the South Pacific with longstanding links to Pasifika and strong trade and diplomatic relationships with Asian economies.
