Are Palestinian people tangata whenua?

Tangata whenua is a peculiarly Aotearoa New Zealand term used by Maori to self-describe and by non-Maori to describe those whom they believe to be indigenous to the land.

This understanding is based on deep relationship with the land through one’s own birth and the births of ancestors. Many Palestinian people similarly have deep relationships with the land of Palestine without anything like the citizenship or tangata whenua rights of Maori. Something is not right? It is surely a matter of justice requiring critical attention.

This lecture presented by Dr Jenny Te Paa-Daniel explores the dilemma and proffers a possible solution.

Dr Jenny Te Paa-Daniel is Te Mareikura of NCPACS for 2018. She was previously Ahorangi at St Johns College in Auckland for 23 years during which time she chaired the International Peace and Justice Network of the Anglican Communion. Between 1995 and 2016 she was a Visiting Professor at St George College, Jerusalem.
