Iwi claiming rights to wind

One iwi claims if Maori have rights to water, they also have rights to wind.

A Ngapuhi sub-tribe is making a Waitangi Tribunal claim for Maori to earn a dividend for the use of wind for commercial electricity generation.

Ngapuhi's David Rankin believes the Tribunal can't turn a blind eye to the claim.

"They set a precedence by the claim over water that they have to go for the wind. They're all resources - the wind is a resource. What turns those turbines on those wind farms?"
