Negotiating a claim before the Waitangi Tribunal can involve troubling challenges to an iwi's legitimacy, sometimes from unexpected places. In this unique behind-the-scenes account of the negotiation of Ngāi Tahu's Waitangi Tribunal claim, Tipene O'Regan describes what happened when claims of New Age mysticism attempted to undermine traditional whakapapa and academic scholarship.
We are Ngāi Tahu -- New light on history -- But who is the iwi? -- The emergence of 'Waitaha' -- Secrets of the Ancient Elders? -- The issue of scholarly standards.
