Tuaiwa (Eva) Rickard at Raglan

Tuaiwa (Eva) Rickard (Ngāti Koata, Ngāti Toa, Tainui, Taranaki) points out the land that she is fighting to reclaim to Minister of Lands Venn Young in 1978. In the sound clip she notes that she had rejected a government proposal that mana whenua pay to purchase the land and extend the golf club’s lease by more than 50 years. ‘I am saying to the government we are not paying $9,000 to watch the Raglan golfers play golf on our land.’
