//020 Lynell Tuffery Huria, patent attorney

June 25, 2019

Lynell Tuffrey Huria is the only Māori patent attorney in Aotearoa. She is helping Māori navigate the intellectual property system, identify cultural property and develop protocols and processes for recognition and protection within Western structures.

Of Ngati Ruanui and Nga Ruahine Rangi whakapapa, she is passionate about creating a better future for our people and, in 2018, co-organised the first Ngā Taonga Tuku Iho conference to discuss ways we can protect our cultural heritage in this ever-changing world.

She is a māmā, a nanny, a talented golfer and, an ex DJ.
In this episode we talk about intellectual property and how to keep ours safe. We discuss the power of indigenous women, how to achieve balance, and share personal stories about healing from grief. She also talks about the kickass indigenous wahine who inspire her.

There are so many amazing Indigenous women in the world. Wahine can do anything, I truly believe that, especially when you have a sister by your side.
