Fighting for data sovereignty in the High Court on behalf of all Māori, the judge finds in favor of John Tamihere and the Whānau Ora Agency for the second time in a month and in the midst of a pandemic. John Tamihere talks to us about taking the Ministry of Health and Dr Bloomfield to court over the matter of Māori health information being made available in the interest of all Māori. Tamihere says he is no iwi war lord, so he doesn't get into who owns Māori rights, however he strongly believes that every Māori and individual have their own mana. Tamihere also says that the court case was about the right to our own data to then deploy our own resources in our own communities in our own way.
