The aspiration of the claim firmly asserts “Māori control over things Māori”. The claim essentially seeks to restore tino rangatiratanga of the whānau, hapū and iwi of Aotearoa over our taonga.

31 years on since Saana Murray-Waitai (Ngāti Kurī), Dell Wihongi (Te Rarawa), John Hippolite (Ngāti Koata), Tama Poata (Te-Whānau-o-Ruataupare, Ngāti Porou) Witi McMath (Ngāti Wai) with lawyer Moana Jackson (Ngāti Kahungunu) lodged the Native Flora and Fauna Claim with the Waitangi Tribunal and Nanaia Mahuta says it's important to move forward and talk to whānau about what they see as the way to realising the aspirations of those great leaders.
