Whenua as legal entity w/ Jacinta Ruru: August 8, 2018

In July 2014, New Zealand granted legal personality to Te Urewera National Park, settling an ongoing argument between the tangata whenua and the Crown. In doing so, it made Te Urewera a freehold land, above ownership. In March 2017, the Whanganui river was given a similar status. And soon, Mount Taranaki will be its own person, legally speaking.

In doing so, Aotearoa New Zealand has shown there is an alternative to the western vision of ownership over the natural world. This redefinition of legal personhood has attracted attention throughout the world, from media, to indigenous leaders and environmental activists - and thus paved the way for new regulations across the globe.\

To better understand how important these decisions have been, Lisa Boudet spoke to Jacinta Ruru, professor of Law at the University of Otago, and co-director of Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga, New Zealand's Māori Centre of Research Excellence.

Professor Ruru’s work particularly focuses on Indigenous people’s right to manage and govern land, and she has abundantly commented on the settlements. Lisa started by asking her to bring us back to the origins of the concept of land as a legal entity.

The Panuku Development Board has prioritised 9 areas around Auckland for urban development programmes. One of these, is the carpark on Anzac St in Takapuna. The proposal is to pedestrianise the block and build a large green space for the public to hang out at and walk along towards the beach. However, there is fierce backlash from one group, ‘Save the Carpark’. Auckland Mayor Phil Goff and councillors Richard Hills and Chris Darby were invited by the group to a public presentation in Takapuna on Sunday, however there was little room for them to talk and they were met with a lot of yelling. Mary-Margaret spoke to Richard Hills about the proposal and the backlash it has brought, and started by asking him where the Council’s vision for this area first came from. Submissions for the build close on Friday, so if you visit Panuku.co.nz/Takapuna you can have your say.
