Te Rarawa calls Iwi Summit Hui about Deed of Settlement

Te Rarawa calls Iwi Summit Hui following signing of Deed of Settlement

Te Rarawa recently signed their Deed of Settlement with the Crown for the historical Treaty claims. It is now time to work with the wider iwi through a Summit Hui which is to be held in Kaitaia on Thursday 22nd November to Saturday 24th November in order to prepare a vision and plan for the future.

As part of the long term planning process for the iwi, 'He Anga Whakamua', Te Rarawa has called the Summit to provide an opportunity for Te Rarawa, whanau, hapu and marae to have input into the future direction of their Iwi. The summit will focus on a wide scope of opportunities for Te Rarawa involving education, the environment, as well as social, cultural and economic development.

Te Runanga o Te Rarawa Chairman Haami Piripi says, "We are looking forward to the opportunity to bring home people with skills, talents and knowledge, and to be able to combine these with the people at home who have their own talents, culture and knowledge. This combination will give us a sound platform and should provide some good go forward capacity for our iwi, as we lay down a vision and direction for our collective future."

The opening ceremony will begin at 11am on the 22nd November at the Te Ahu centre on Matthews Ave in Kaitaia. A range of keynote speakers, interactive workshops and presentations are planned which are all designed to provide an opportunity for Te Rarawa members to feed into the direction for the iwi as a whole. The Summit will also host a special celebration dinner acknowledging the deeds of Te Rarawa leaders who have made significant contributions at a local and national level.

Gordon Campbell:
On The Northland By-Election

Supposedly, Winston Peters’ victory in Northland has exposed the simmering dissatisfaction with the government that exists out in the provinces. Yet it remains to be seen whether this defeat will have much significance – and not simply because if and when Labour resumes business as usual in the Northland seat at the next election, Peters’ hold on it could simply evaporate.

On Saturday, National’s electorate vote declined by 7,000 votes, as the 9,000 majority it won last September turned into a 4,000 vote deficit – mainly because Labour supporters followed the nod and wink given by Labour leader Andrew Little, and voted tactically for Peters. In the process, Labour’s vote went down from nearly 9,000 votes six months ago, to only 1,315 on Saturday. More>>

On Pacific Spying

So New Zealand spied on its friends and allies in the Pacific – and has not only been passing on the results to the NSA, but has apparently passed on the details of the Pacific’s relations with Taiwan to our other best friends, the Chinese.
