Ngā Ture ā-tangata - Law
He Pātaka Kupu Ture / The Legal Māori Archive is an unprecedented collection of full text documents that presents, in one accessible place, the bilingual nature of New Zealand’s legal history which has to date been largely overlooked. These documents are all testament to the strong engagement between 19th century Māori and the legal system developed by and imposed by the colonial governments of that time.
All these documents are what may be termed legal Māori documents. In other words these documents describe, debate, use and critique imported Western legal ideas in the Māori language.
