Sustainable Futures Speaker Series

As part of the Sustainable Futures Speaker Series, Maia Wikaira will present “Legal Personality in Rivers, National Parks and Mountains: The Role of Indigenous Knowledge in Transforming Environmental Law in New Zealand.” Maia Wikaira descends from the indigenous Maori tribes of Ngati Tuwharetoa, Ngapuhi and Te Rarawa. Prior to coming to the US, Maia was an attorney with Kahui Legal, the Maori firm that worked on New Zealand’s Whanganui River settlement, which afforded legal personality to the river. Maia is currently working as a Legal Fellow in the Office of Tribal Attorney of the Yurok Tribe. The presentation will take place in Founders Hall 118 on the HSU campus.
