Tūhoe and Te Urewera National Park

From the 1980s, Māori views on national parks got more publicity. People of the Tūhoe iwi were angry at the way their views had been ignored in the setting up of Te Urewera National Park. In this extract from a 1980s television documentary, a Ngāi Tūhoe man describes the impact of losing traditional hunting grounds.
