Nga hapū o Ngāpuhi, kōrero mai!


Minister for Treaty of Waitangi Negotiations Andrew Little continues his Ngāpuhi listening tour throughout Te Tai Tokerau following the announcement of six more hui this weekend.

“My focus is now on the smaller regions of the rohe, to hear from hapū, as I’ve met with some rangatira and key advisors of the larger Ngāpuhi groups.

“I’m looking forward to visiting and hearing from hapū at meetings in Kaeo, Ohaeawai, Moerewa, Omapere, Titoki and Whangarei. This is an opportunity to meet, greet and hear how the hapū see the settlement negotiations shaping up. I’m also keen for Ngāpuhi hapū to understand that I’m there to listen.

“I’m happy with the response we’ve had so far, from attendance numbers and iwi feedback following our previous hui in Waitangi two weeks ago.

“I’ve heard the hui are providing an opportunity for all hapū to discuss what’s best for Ngāpuhi and how they see the settlement advancing their communities,” says Andrew Little.

By the afternoon, the South Island’s main transport corridor will be open to traffic again, more than a year after a magnitude 7.8 earthquake mangled bridges and tunnels, twisted rail tracks and buried sections of the road under massive landslides. More>>

 

BPS HYEFU WYSIWYG: Labour's Budget Plans, Families Package

“Today we are announcing the full details of the Government’s Families Package. This is paid for by rejecting National’s tax cuts and instead targeting spending at those who need it most. It will lift 88,000 children out of poverty by 2021." More>>

Gordon Campbell: On Defence Spending, Alabama, And Dolly Parton

The spending lavished on Defence projects to meet the risks that could maybe, possibly, theoretically face New Zealand in future is breath-taking, given how successive governments have been reluctant to spend even a fraction of those amounts on the nation’s actual social needs. More>>
