Tino Rangatiratanga in the 1990s – potential for alliances



"Discusses the shift in Pakeha thinking and understanding of the Treaty, which has occurred over the past decade. Backgrounds the involvement of Pakeha in the anti-racism struggle in the 1970s and early 1980s. Argues that Pakeha need to rethink their role and attitudes in relation to the Treaty. Suggests that a disciplined and systematic analysis of all aspects of the Treaty debate is needed to identify cultural barriers and to exercise 'tino rangatiratanga', sovereignty. Talks about biculturalism, the understanding of the future direction of the economy, the Maori dynamic and complex interaction of gender, class and culture with Tauiwi, colonisers."
