Landmark agreement with Rūnanga signed

The Papatipu Rūnanga and Christchurch City Council Relationship Agreement was signed this afternoon by Mayor Lianne Dalziel and Dr Te Mairie Tau, co-chairs of Te Hononga Council- Papatipu Rūnanga Committee, along with representatives from the six Rūnanga within the city and Peninsula boundaries.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel says the signing of this agreement is a landmark in the evolution of civic and tribal diplomacy.

“The Agreement establishes a firm basis for us to mutually reinforce our commitment to Ōtautahi Christchurch. The Treaty of Waitangi underpins the relationship between the Crown and Iwi.

“Our city’s relationship with the six Papatipu Rūnanga is also underpinned by the Agreement signed today.”

The Mayor says her first term was dominated by challenging issues but sees this term as offering the promise of opportunity.

She says a strong partnership with the Rūnanga of our district is a crucial element in that vision for the future.

“This relationship has always been an ideal we wanted, and today’s signing signifies a vital step forward.”

Te Hononga Council-Papatipu Rūnanga committee is made up of representatives from the Rūnanga, the Mayor, the Deputy Mayor, the chairs of Council committees, along with a representative from the Multicultural Working Party. The committee meets quarterly during the year to discuss matters of joint interest.

The six Rūnanga are: Te Ngāi Tūāhuriri Rūnanga, Ōnuku Rūnanga, Te Rūnanga o Koukourārata, Te Hapū o Ngāti Wheke, Te Taumutu Rūnanga and Wairewa Rūnanga.

Trump is pretty clear to everyone: first deny the Democrats the ability to call witnesses and offer evidence, and then derisively dismiss the charges for lack of evidence. For his part, does former security adviser John Bolton really, really want to testify against his former boss? If there was any competing faction within the Republican Party, there might be some point for Bolton in doing so – but there isn’t. More>>
