dc.description.abstractThis study investigates the perceived impacts of government legislation upon Maori tourism development in the Tairawhiti region of Aotearoa/New Zealand with the notion that: " ... political acts frequently determine the other social qualities of tourism-related behaviour in a given setting by imposing limits on the type and level of tourism activity" (Matthews, 1978:87). The Runanga Iwi Act (1990) was purported to enable iwi Maori to negotiate directly with the Crown for government services and programmes as a Treaty partner. The perceived impacts of the Act for Maori tourism development is the focus of this study, given that: "the perceived consequences of tourism vary tremendously and appear to be a function of the policy examined, the level of analysis, the time frame [for implementation] and of course, the ideological, occupational and disciplinary bias of the person doing the critique" (Richter, 1989:15). This study applies Richter's (1989) hypothesis to a selection of the Maori population of the Tairawhiti region to determine to what extent their perceptions can be categorised according to Richter's variables. Also of interest in this investigation is whether there are other significant factors that might affect perceptions of Maori tourism development in the region. Participants were chosen for this study on the basis of their experience in tourism, their knowledge of Maori policy and their community profiles. All Maori participants were able to whakapapa to the Tairawhiti. Four broad, categories emerged for the study: 1. Tairawhiti Maori actively involved in tourism activities, 2. National, regional and local policy makers and tourism planners whose work directly or indirectly involved the Tairawhiti, 3. Runanga representatives, and 4. Iwi Kainga not directly involved in tourism. Central to this study is the perceived impacts of the Runanga Iwi Act (1990) upon Maori tourism development in the Tairawhiti region.en
