This chapter explores how Discovery and its elements have continued to haunt contemporary legal and political reasoning in Aotearoa/New Zealand. It focuses on case law post 1970, Treaty of Waitangi claim settlements concerning national parks and the foreshore and seabed, and the constitutional standing of the Treaty of Waitangi. These case studies highlight the still permeating influence of the Doctrine of Discovery in Aotearoa/New Zealand.
