- Author: Jones, CarwynDate:Created2016Summary:
Legal traditions respond to social and economic environments. Māori author and legal scholar Carwyn Jones provides a timely examination of how the resolution of land claims in New Zealand has affected Māori law and the challenges faced by Indigenous peoples as they attempt to exercise self-determination in a postcolonial world. Combining thoughtful analysis with Māori storytelling, Jones’s nuanced reflections on the claims process show how Western legal thought has shaped treaty negotiations. Drawing on Canadian and international examples, Jones makes the case that genuine reconciliation can occur only when we recognize the importance of Indigenous traditions in the settlement process.Subject(s): New Zealand | Maori (New Zealand people)--Land tenure | Maori (New Zealand people) | Maori (New Zealand people)--Legal status | laws | etc | Reconciliation (Law) | Land tenure (Maori law) | Treaty of Waitangi (1840 February 6) | PostcolonialismOriginal Publisher: [S.l.], UBC PressLanguage(s): English
