Exploring Māori legal traditions: Te hōpara i ngā tikanga ture Māori

Tikanga and Law: Exploring the legal traditions of Ngāti Kahungunu

What is Māori law? What does it mean to us as Ngāti Kahungunu? How does it help us deal with disputes today? What can we do to strengthen our own law?

These are some of the issues to be discussed at a wānanga on Tikanga and Law that is part of the Exploring Māori Legal Traditions project. The project is being led by Dr Carwyn Jones (Ngāti Kahungunu ki Te Wairoa).
Carwyn is a senior lecturer at Victoria University’s Faculty of Law and the author of New Treaty, New Tradition:Reconciling New Zealand and Māori Law.

Join us for this important discussion about tikanga, our stories and our law.

When: 9.30am–3.30pm, Saturday 12 November
Where: Pukemokimoki Marae, Riverbed Road, Napier
RSVP: Go to to RSVP for the catering of lunch and light refreshments.
