PRESS RELEASE

Te Ururoa Flavell

Waiariki MP, Māori Party Co-Leader

Ngā kapa haka o te Waiariki – kia kaha koutou!

Ko te amorangi ki mua, ko te hāpai ō ki muri. E ngā kaihaka o te motu, ngā mangai, ngā matatini o Te Arawa waka, o Mataatua waka, haere atu koutou ki te atamira o Tāne rore. Kawea atu ō mātou tini mate, ō mātou kōrero, me ō mātou wawata ki mua i te marea hei whakaihi hei whakawehi i te katoa. E whakahīhī ana ahau ki te kite i te taumata o ngā kaihaka e tū ana mō to tātou nei rohe. Karanga mai rā Kahungunu iwi, karanga mai rā ki ō mātou nei Amorangi whakaeke ana ki runga i a Tākitimu waka, ki te Kahu o te Amorangi, ki te tutuki i ngā wawata a Kui ma a Koro ma.

Waiariki MP Te Ururoa Flavell MP is sending his best wishes to the teams which will be heading to the Hawke’s Bay next week to represent the tribes within Waiariki at the National Te Matatini Kapa Haka Festival.

“I’ve been fortunate to have been behind the scenes with some of our teams over this campaign, and have shared with them my words of advice and hopefully some inspiration to get them battle ready for the coming week,” said Mr Flavell.

“I know how high the standard is here in Waiariki at our regional level, and now, the expectation is that these groups go down there and take it to the next level to make the final Sunday performances.

“I send all the very best wishes to all the teams, have a safe journey to and from Heretaunga, and I look forward to seeing you out on that atamira doing the business.”

The teams representing Mataatua waka are Waioweka, Ngā Tauira Mai Tawhiti, Tūtara Kauika ki Rangataua, Te Kapa Haka o Ruātoki, Te Kapa Haka o Te Whānau-a-Apanui, Ōpōtiki Mai Tawhiti. And representing Te Arawa are Ngāti Rangiwewehi, Te Pikikōtuku o Ngāti Rongomai, Te Hikuwai, Te Mātārae I Ōrehu and Tūhourangi - Ngāti Wāhiao.

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...
