Story: Principles of the Treaty of Waitangi – ngā mātāpono o te tiriti

Treaty principles and the radio spectrum, 2010

One treaty principle states that Māori interests in resources cannot be limited to traditional or pre-treaty technology. This principle has been used to argue for Māori rights to resources such as the radio broadcasting spectrum. This clip from the Māori television news programme Te karere shows a 2010 hui on the radio spectrum at a marae in Waitara, Taranaki.
