Treaty settlements in Aotearoa New Zealand have not only changed the economic base of Māori groups, but have also provided a catalyst for social, political, cultural and environmental change. The post-settlement period is already proving to be more complex, dynamic and relational than previously. Emergence is often perceived to be most applicable to landscape and the environment. Reading cultural dynamics as emergent might be useful in the inevitable indigenous/non-indigenous encounters in this new environment in the future.
