Author(s): Ani Mikaere
This book brings together a series of papers by Ani Mikaere that reflect on the effect of Pakeha law, legal processes and teaching on Maori legal thought and practice. She discusses issues such as the ability of Maori to achieve justice when Maori law is marginalised; the need to confront racism in thinking, processes and structures; the impact of interpretations of the Treaty of Waitangi; the difficulty of redressing harm to Maori within the Pakeha legal system; and the importance of reinstating tikanga at the heart of Maori legal
thinking and practice.
Ani Mikaere is a barrister and solicitor and teaches Maori law and philosophy at Te Wananga o-Raukawa.
She has taught Maori law and Western law at the University of Auckland and the University of Waikato and has published widely on the impact of colonisation on Maori and Maori legal practices, biculturalism, Maori self-determination and the Treaty of Waitangi.
