Human Rights of Indigenous People in the video spotlight

The Human Rights Commission is launching a video today at the Iwi Leaders Forum in Waitangi which features iwi leaders reading the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

The Declaration reinforces that international human rights standards apply to indigenous peoples.

David Rutherford, Chief Commissioner, says this resource is being made freely available to all New Zealanders but especially to whanau, hapu and iwi in an effort to raise awareness of the Declaration.

“Greater awareness and ownership of the Declaration will help us understand the human rights implicit in the Treaty. Many of the articles in the Declaration intersect with the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi”.

A number of iwi, hapu and whanau leaders appear on the Commission’s video reading the articles of the Declaration in Te Reo and English.

Anzac Issue Out Now: Werewolf 47

Hi and welcome to the 47th edition of Werewolf, published on the eve of Anzac Day. Its become a cliché to describe Gallipolli as the crucible of this country’s identity, yet hold on... Isn’t our national identity supposed to be bi-cultural... and wouldn’t that suggest that the New Zealand Wars of the 19th century is a more important crucible of national identity than those fought on foreign soil?

Yet as Alison McCulloch eloquently reveals in this month’s cover story, New Zealand devotes a mere fraction of its attention span and funding resources to commemorating the New Zealand Wars compared to what it devotes to the two world wars, Vietnam and Afghanistan... More>>
