The confusion arises because of different concepts of ownership. In Pakeha culture, individual or private “ownership” can be bought or sold, to control or monopolise usage. In Maori culture, collective guardianship(kaitiakitanga) is to safeguard common treasures (taonga) for the wellbeing of all and future generations. It is far more dangerous what John Key wants to do, which would be to allow private interests to have control over rivers. The Maori concept of guardianship protects water for all of us. Making more efforts to understand this will help.
