Music : Te Waka Huia - 'Te Wahine Toa'

10 years ago two major reports came out setting out the need for a Māori Law Commission.
Those reports entitled "Te Whainga I Te Ika" - Access to Justice. And "He Whaipaanga Hou" - The Māori and the criminal justice system - were based on extensive consultation and both saw the clear need for an independent research and development body focused on legal and constitutional issues.
While the government declined to act on the reports findings, the Wellington Māori Legal Service, or, Nga Kaiwhakamarama i nga ture, has thrown its support behind the establishment of an organisation known as the Māori Law Commission and Institute for Indigenous Research.
The new organisation was launched last Friday and to tell us more about its aims and objectives - we're joined by Moana Jackson, Māori Law Commission Member.

Music : Prince Tui Teka - 'E I Po'

FISHING JUDGEMENT; Māori claim to trout fishing. Customary rights, Colonising Rights, by definition, belong to Māori.
