Privatizing Electricity Generating Assets on the Waikato River: Intergenerational Investment or Selling our Tupuna (Ancestor)?

Marama Muru-Lanning

  • Postdoctoral fellow in Anthropology, University of Auckland, New Zealand

This Brown Bag Seminar presentation will observe whanau (family) and marae (local community) economies of Waikato Maori and the devolved social responsibility that Maori tribal leaders and iwi authorities have adopted in the pursuit of an “intergenerational” investment framework. In the near future, Waikato Maori, many of whom cannot afford to pay their electricity bills, may be part owners of electricity assets.
