Sir Graham Latimer (Ngāti Kahu) headed the New Zealand Māori Council from 1974. He is shown here outside the High Court in Wellington in 1987, when the Māori Council took a case against the government to prevent the sale of state-owned enterprises' land. Their legal challenge was won in the Court of Appeal and the decision empowered the Waitangi Tribunal to recover state-owned enterprises' assets, including land, to redress treaty breaches.
