Riki Bennett and Rewi Spraggon are hosting a Urban Forage event as part of American Express Restaraunt Month's 5th annual Wine and Food Celebration happening in the city. OnSaturday the 18th of August they’ll be taking people on a guided walk to find different types of edible things in the environment around us. Then you get to eat it. Given we’ve been talking about land this week and our relationship to it, I thought this also fit in terms of how we operate in the environment around us and how we consume things sustainably. Riki Bennett is a park ranger with the Auckland Council of Te Arawa and Ngati Porou descent. He was raised on the shores of Lake Rotoiti. He runs guided walks looking at the forest environment from a traditional perspective and how Māori people used the forest for food and medicinal purposes or rongoa. Lillian Hanly spoke with Riki to find out more about the event, and started by asking what they actually do on the day.

The inner workings of intelligence gathering agencies has long been a black box to the public. How many are there? How do they cooperate and function? How have they changed? Glenn Carle served twenty-three years in the Central Intelligence Agency and he sat down with Maria Armoudian to discuss what goes on inside the intelligence agencies of the United States.

Whenua as legal entity w/ Jacinta Ruru: August 8, 2018

Wed 8 Aug 2018

In July 2014, New Zealand granted legal personality to Te Urewera National Park, settling an ongoing argument between the tangata whenua and the Crown. In doing so, it made Te Urewera a freehold land, above ownership. In March 2017, the Whanganui river was given a similar status. And soon, Mount Taranaki will be its own person, legally speaking.

In doing so, Aotearoa New Zealand has shown there is an alternative to the western vision of ownership over the natural world. This redefinition of legal personhood has attracted attention throughout the world, from media, to indigenous leaders and environmental activists - and thus paved the way for new regulations across the globe.\

To better understand how important these decisions have been, Lisa Boudet spoke to Jacinta Ruru, professor of Law at the University of Otago, and co-director of Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga, New Zealand's Māori Centre of Research Excellence.

Professor Ruru’s work particularly focuses on Indigenous people’s right to manage and govern land, and she has abundantly commented on the settlements. Lisa started by asking her to bring us back to the origins of the concept of land as a legal entity.
