Landmark agreement with Rūnanga signed

The Papatipu Rūnanga and Christchurch City Council Relationship Agreement was signed this afternoon by Mayor Lianne Dalziel and Dr Te Mairie Tau, co-chairs of Te Hononga Council- Papatipu Rūnanga Committee, along with representatives from the six Rūnanga within the city and Peninsula boundaries.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel says the signing of this agreement is a landmark in the evolution of civic and tribal diplomacy.

“The Agreement establishes a firm basis for us to mutually reinforce our commitment to Ōtautahi Christchurch. The Treaty of Waitangi underpins the relationship between the Crown and Iwi.

“Our city’s relationship with the six Papatipu Rūnanga is also underpinned by the Agreement signed today.”

The Mayor says her first term was dominated by challenging issues but sees this term as offering the promise of opportunity.

She says a strong partnership with the Rūnanga of our district is a crucial element in that vision for the future.

“This relationship has always been an ideal we wanted, and today’s signing signifies a vital step forward.”

Te Hononga Council-Papatipu Rūnanga committee is made up of representatives from the Rūnanga, the Mayor, the Deputy Mayor, the chairs of Council committees, along with a representative from the Multicultural Working Party. The committee meets quarterly during the year to discuss matters of joint interest.

The six Rūnanga are: Te Ngāi Tūāhuriri Rūnanga, Ōnuku Rūnanga, Te Rūnanga o Koukourārata, Te Hapū o Ngāti Wheke, Te Taumutu Rūnanga and Wairewa Rūnanga.

Gordon Campbell:
On War Crimes And The Afghan Insurgency

Truly, with friends like former defence Minster Wayne Mapp, the SAS does not need enemies. At the very least, the Hit and Run book has raised the possibility that the New Zealand SAS committed war crimes in the attack they led in Afghnistan upon the villages of Naik and Khak Khuday Dad...

Mapp’s attempted defence of the SAS on RNZ this morning unintentionally indicated that collective punishment was baked into the planning exercise for the raid, and also into how the raid proceeded on the ground. More>>
