Ecology of community: Exploring principles of socially-based tenure in urban papakāinga and cohousing communities
Abstract – Tuhinga Whakarāpopoto
Social (or communal) tenure refers to systems of rights which are based on social norms, processes and relationships. Social tenures are a feature of many Indigenous cultures, where land and resources are managed from a collectivist, rather than an individualist, standpoint. For instance, in New Zealand, Māori society was traditionally based around territorial tribal living, with hapū (sub-tribes) controlling and defending particular territories.
