E ai ki te Minita mö ngä Whiriwhiringa Tiriti a Margaret Wilson, kua kotahi mai ngä iwi me ngä hapü o Te Arawa – e noho nei ki Rotorua – ki te whakarite i te whakataunga o ä rätou kerëme i raro i te Tiriti o Waitangi.

“Koinei te röpü nui rawa atu kia whakauru ki ngä whiriwhiringa whakataunga, inä e 40,000 rätou.”

Ka pä ngä whiriwhiringa ki te kotahi rau o ngä kerëme kua täepatia këtia ki mua i te aroaro o te Röpü Whakamana i te Tiriti o Waitangi.

I äta whai hätepe whakamana whänui ngä hapü me ngä iwi o Te Arawa, tae noa ki ngä hui e 24 i tü i waenganui i ngä marama o Pipiri me Mahuru 2003. I köwhiria e Te Arawa ä rätou mängai kia uru ki tëtahi anga hou, ki a “Kaihautu.” I köpoua e te Kaihautü tëtahi röpü iti, arä ko te Kaunihera Whakahaere.

“Ka mihi au ki te Kaihautü me tana Kaunihera Whakahaere mö tä rätou arataki ki te whakakotahi i ngä hapü me ngä iwi kia taea ai ngä kerëme katoa a Te Arawa te whiriwhiri. Kua whakaatu mai te Kaunihera Whakahaere i te kaha o te tautoko mai a ngä hapü me ngä iwi o Te Arawa kia whiriwhiria ä rätou kerëme.

I kï mai a Margaret Wilson, “I whakarite whakataunga paku noa iho ngä käwanatanga o mua mö te Puku o te Ika, otirä, iti noa iho tä rätou mö te rohe whänui. Kätahi anö he tino wä mö te Karauna me te iwi ki te whakatau i ngä whakamau o nehe o ënei röpü. E harakoa ana ahau i te kauneketanga kua tutuki i te Karauna me ngä iwi o te Puku o te Ika. Mä ngä whakataunga e äwhina te hanganga o te tumu e pai ake ai ngä hononga ki waenganui i te Karauna me ngä iwi o te Puku o te Ika i ngä rä ki mua.

Ko te mahi mä te Karauna me Te Arawa i näianei ko te whakaae ki ngä Tikanga Whiriwhiri e whakaatu ai ngä tikanga e pä ana ki te ähua o te haere o ngä whiriwhiringa.

Ka haere wehe tonu ngä whiriwhiringa o te kerëme Te Arawa Lakes, ä kua tïmata kë hoki nei ngä whiriwhiringa.
