Horomia: Whanau o Waikaremoana

Hon Parekura Horomia

Minister of Mäori Affairs 2 November 2005 Speech notes

Whanau o Nga Kaitiaki Hauora o Waikaremoana


It is a privilege to be invited to celebrate a range of achievements with the whanau of Waikaremoana. I love escaping to this special part of Aotearoa and to be on a day when we are celebrating Maori success is an added bonus.

I pay respects to the Kuia and Koroua of Waikaremoana who have inspired many of these achievements and whose support has been unfailing and dependable.

I honour Aunty Maria Waiwai who is 84 today, and her sister Lovey Hook who is celebrating her 83rd birthday and their contribution to this community and the whanau here.

To Nga Kaitiaki Hauora o Waikaremoana I congratulate you on your achievement in gaining the Internationally recognised ISO 9001:2000 Accreditation Certification

I am well aware that Aileen and her team have been working diligently for the past three years to meet very stringent quality management and service delivery standards that withstand international scrutiny and constant monitoring and assessment from the accrediting body.

Well done to your Trustees and the Hauora for persevering with your aspirations to attain this level of recognition as a Governance body and a Maori Health Service Provider. You now have an important key to aid in realising your aspirations and adding to them. This level of accreditation puts your Trust on an even par with big industry and mainstream service and product delivery.

Trustees, management, staff and whanau within your organisation and community should be proud of this achievement. You all need to maintain your commitment and the high quality standards set out by ISO to ensure you maintain recognition as a quality service provider standing alongside other more established, long term and traditional service providers. I understand you are the fourth Maori health provider in Hawkes Bay to have attained this accreditation, what a great achievement that is. Well done to you all.

The Nga Kaitiaki o Waikaremoana Hauora has provided health services to the Waikaremoana community since 1995. The ten-year journey has as with every journey had its ups and downs, but you've made it and there are many things to celebrate today.

I want to also acknowledge Waikaremoana - rangatahi, pakeke and kuia and their achievements.

It is now my absolute pleasure to present this ISO 9001:2000 Accreditation Certificate to Nga Kaitiaki Hauora O Waikaremoana in recognition of what Maori, community and whanau have achieved here in Waikaremoana – Maori succeeding as Maori.

Once again, congratulations.

Despite Christopher Luxon’s assurances to the contrary, there is no such thing as “settled law” in New Zealand. Apart from the six provisions that are constitutionally entrenched, legislation can always be amended or overturned by a simple majority vote within our single chamber of Parliament. Luxon’s repeated use of the term “settled law” has been particularly tone deaf, given that several of the US Supreme Court justices used that very same term during their confirmation hearings...
