Heketerangi Broadhurst: King Tuheitia Letter

E whai ake nei ko tetahi korero whakamaarama e paa ana ki taa matou hotaka e kiia nei ko "Korero Mai Ki Ahau."

Saturday 01 December 2012 12:00 and repeated at 5pm – Heketerangi Broadhurst: King Tuheitia Letter


This week Kingi Tuheitia issued a letter to all tribal Waikato-Tainui members expressing his displeasure around the ongoing internal conflicts amongst those who are in leadership roles for the iwi, along with the unnecessary waste of resources to resolve the issues, by using the courts as an option.
In doing this Kingi Tuheitia has also publicly given his support to Tukoroirangi Morgan to contest the highly disputed position of Chair of Te Kauhanganui, while asking the current Chair Tania Martin and members of the Te Arataura to stand down.
This is unprecedented, and with the Maori king getting involved, many believe this is beneath his status and will have a detrimental effect on the entire kingitanga movement.
Waikato – Tainui kuia Heketerangi Broadhurst, who is also a staunch supporter of the kingitanga discusses with Ngawai her view that this letter has had on not only Waikato-Tainui but Maoridom as a whole. A hui on December 8th has been set for Te Kauhanganui, Te Ara Taura and Iwi dignatories to meet at Turangawaewae Marae regarding other issues stated in the letter.

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
