Dayle Takitimu

Fresh from winning a case against the Crown defending Te Whanau-a-Apanui skipper Elvis Teddy, Dayle is the lawyer who has led the campaign against a deep sea drilling permit off the East Coast.

In 2010 the New Zealand Government granted Brazilian oil giant Petrobras a permit to explore for oil and gas in the Raukumara Basin.

Dayle’s iwi Te Whanau-a-Apanui have supported her leadership in opposition to the permit and the assumptions upon which the Crown is granting rights to explore offshore and onshore around Aotearoa.

Dayle is also a Trustee of the Aotearoa Indigenous Rights Trust, a mother and reggae fan.
