Professor of Māori Research and Development & Assistant Vice-Chancellor (Māori & Pasifika), Massey University, Aotearoa New Zealand, statesman  and elder (Ngāti Kauwhata, Ngāti Raukawa, Rangitane tribes) talks about the global indigenous movement, Maori participation and Maori as global citizens.

See below for a transcription of this conversation:

Mason Durie:I think that the indigenous rejuvenation and reassertion is in fact a global movement. It’s not,  It is certainly not unique to Maori and so by getting involved in that there is already a move to be part of a global movement and global citizenship has got more than one meaning in this sense and that in enables Maori to be part of the indigenous world movement and that’s been quite important I think as, and not only important in terms of a sense of solidarity that economically is going to be important too  you can imagine business ventures and economic where you’ll get preferred providers who might haven’t be Indigenous whether it is in fishing or some other arrangement.
