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

Saturday 02 February 2013 12:00 – Tamati Cairns

Maori rights to freshwater still remains in the news headlines, with the NZ Maori Council seeking a favourable ruling from the Supreme Court. This week Ngawai Herewini talks with Tamati Cairns, spokesman and Chair of the Pouakani Trust, part of the group of Waikato iwi who have joined with the New Zealand Maori Council to challenge the privatization of Mighty River Power and to argue that the Government should not sell shares in the power generators until it has shown how it has the capacity to settle any successful Maori claims to water.

Tamati Cairns says given the complexity of the case, it is unlikely there will be any decision before Pouakani is back in court later this month to argue for ownership of a section of the Waikato River near Mangakino where Mighty Rover Power has three hydro dams.

He says the Crown seems to have adopted bullying tactics, emphasizing the right of Parliament to make laws while ignoring the duty of ministers to act in accordance with the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi.

Sunday 03 February 2013 12:00 – Henare Kingi and Willie Jackson

One of Maori broadcastings finest Julian Wilcox will no longer be gracing iwi radio airwaves, or maintaining a high profile presence on Maori Television. Julian is the new General Manager of News and Current Affairs at Maori Television and because of his new position he is taking a step back from hosting and presenting. We pay tribute to Julian for his leadership and commitment to iwi radio for almost 2 decades. Ngawai speaks with retired veteran broadcaster and one of Julian’s mentors Henare Kingi about Julian’s early days in Maori radio, and Julian’s unwavering focus on te reo Maori.

UMA Broadcasting CEO and Te Whakaruruhau o Nga Reo Irirangi Maori Willie Jackson also talks with Ngawai, about Julian’s work with Waatea and his daily current affairs programme Tawera and his huge contribution to te reo Maori and of course Maori radio. All of us at Waatea wish him well.

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

Both shows will be available as podcast on our website: waateanews.com
