Definition of maori

A.j sheppard made this Official Information request to Ministry of Māori Development

Response to this request is long overdue. By law Ministry of Māori Development should have responded by now (details and exceptions). The requester can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: A.j sheppard

Dear Ministry of Māori Development,
I request the following information.
1. Whats the legal definition of a maori person?

2. How does the TPK define being a maori person?

3. If these definitions do not exist or are very broad then how does TPK know wether or not they are helping maori or targeting maori?

4. When it comes to funding/supporting a maori business or initiative what is the definition and thresholds to being classed a maori business? Eg. 100% owned by maori or 25%,50%,75% maori owned.

Yours faithfully,

A.j sheppard
