    Title: Water Rights for Ngai Tahu: A Discussion Paper
    Author: TAU TE MAIRE

    In 'Water Rights for Ngai Tahu', Te Maire Tau considers the historical and political framework that has contributed to the current state of water rights in the Ngai Tahu takiwa. He explores the customary, legal and Treaty frameworks that feed into the debate regarding the ownership of water. From 1844 to 1864 the Crown purchased more than 34.5 million acres of land from Ngai Tahu, but in most purchase
    deeds water is not mentioned. How does this play into claims to water? Should the Treaty be relied upon? How far can kaitiakitanga take us if the goal is mana motuhake and tino rangatiratanga?

    In this short book Te Maire Tau lays out the historical background and context to water rights, and opens a discussion about where to proceed next in determining a Ngai Tahu position on water.
