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.

Greek Riddles:
Gordon Campbell On The Recent Smackdown Over Greece

There had been a fortnight of fevered buildup. Yet here we are in the aftermath of the February 28 showdown between the new Syriza government in Greece and the European Union “troika” and… no-one seems entirely sure what happened. Did the asteroid miss Earth?

It seems to have. The EU still exists. Syriza is now claiming a victory of sorts. It doesn’t help that the only people who do appear to be sure (the Greeks buckled) are claiming the exact opposite to what the other group (the Greeks won!) are saying. Plus, there are bets either way e.g. Bloomberg News: “Its too early to say who caved in to whom.” More>>

Gordon Campbell: On Whether NZ Troops Are The Least Of Islamic State’s Problems

Given that it has been politically packaged and sold as a training mission, the Iraq deployment announced yesterday by Prime Minister John Key seemed to be mysteriously short of actual trainers...
