Maps has written on this subject in this post entitled The 'First White Marxists' reach Tuhoe Country and, as usual his analysis is thought-provoking, very high quality and actually makes sense. Reading the Maps is my favorite blog. The comments are also outstanding.
Teaser from the conclusion
"There is no reason why Tuhoe could not retain returned land and resources in collective ownership and develop their land and resources for the benefit of the whole iwi. There are already examples of iwi who are opting for the collectivist 'Polynesian mode of production' model of development over the 'corporate' model."I really recommend a visit to Reading the Maps.
