Ngāi Tahu Settlement and Rangitiratanga - presented by Dr Martin Fisher
While the pursuit of tino rangatiratanga is often the focus of claimants in Treaty settlement negotiations, the reality in the actual final settlement is often limited as much as possible by the Crown. During the Ngāi Tahu settlement negotiations, tino rangatiratanga permeated all of Ngai Tahu’s tactics and positions. This lecture will explore the place of tino rangatiratanga in the Ngāi Tahu negotiations with a particular focus on the establishment of Te Runanga o Ngāi Tahu and the final Deed of Settlement.
This presentation is part of the Kā Waimaero | Ngāi Tahu Centre and Kaupeka Ture | Faculty of Law, Treaty Partnership Speaker Series.
Morning tea will be served after the seminar.

From triple-A blockbusters like Assassin’s Creed and God of War to indie darlings like Hades and The Forgotten City, video games are an important medium through which contemporary creators represent and reimagine the Greek and Roman worlds. This talk will examine several case studies from recent games and discuss questions important to historical games scholars: What makes the classical past a valuable source of material for game developers? How do games make use ancient material to discuss modern themes? What claims about history and culture do these games make?
Hamish Cameron is a Lecturer in Classics at Victoria University of Wellington where he works on the history and geography of the Roman Near East, representations of imperialism in classical literature, and reception in modern analog and digital games.

Law frames the natural and physical world. Those frames create legal categories and classifications that have legal and wider consequences. In this lecture I explore how that framing has and does occur and what are the implications of it for legal reasoning.
