Sunday 12.00 - 12.30pm

both shows repeated from 5pm onwards

Saturday 18th May - Every year the government's budget is announced and we have a squizz at it to see what's in it for Maori. Eruera Morgan speaks with political analyst Henare Kingi on Budget 2013, who tells us all about the good and bad things that Maori need to be aware of.

Sunday 19th May - The government is committed to spending nearly $20 million in this year’s budget on Charter Schools to establish them in 2014.

Critics are saying Charter Schools are receiving money that should have gone into kura kaupapa and wharekura who for too long have been under resourced. Eruera talks with Te Ururoa Flavell from the Maori Party amid claims from the likes of the Mana Party's Hone Harawira, that as Nationals coalition partner in government the Maori Party failed abysmally to advocate for kura kaupapa in this budget.

We also talk with Labour's Education spokesperson Nanaia Mahuta who believes Charter schools will only harm the education system and believes more focus should have been placed on Maori in mainstream schools

Korero Mai Ki Ahau a half hour features programme every Saturday and Sunday from noon, which takes an in – depth look at issues affecting te ao Maori. Totally in te reo Maori brought to you by Waatea News in association with Te Mangai Paho.

Ma Waatea ma te reo hei whakamarama

Gordon Campbell: On The New Pike River Agency (And The Air Strike Wing)

Much of the sympathy the public still feels for the families of the Pike River miners has been sustained by the sense that the previous government – let alone the mining company and the processes of receivership and litigation – has never dealt honestly, or fairly, with them.

Finally, yesterday’s announcement by the Ardern government that a new state agency will be set up to assess and plan the manned re-entry to the mine (on a set timetable) goes a long way to meeting the families’ remaining request: that they be enabled, if at all possible, to bury their loved ones.
