Maori Makes a Difference
by Ray Barnhardt
paper was born out of six months of observation, reading, participation,
and discussion as a visiting research fellow at the Centre
for Maori Studies and Research, University of Waikato, while
on sabbatical leave from the University of Alaska, Fairbanks,

the paper, though focused on the Maori in New Zealand, is also
influenced to a certain extent by my experience with similar
issues in the context of Alaska Native development. "

Excerpt: "The paper will examine from a Maori perspective their
notions of indigenous peoples rights and obligations and how
they are fundamentally at odds with existing intellectual property

claimants consider their rights should be acknowledged, respected
and protected and the inevitable obstacles that must be confronted
and overcome before this can happen."
