On Air Now | Radio Waatea

03:00pm - 06:00pm
CA Paakiwaha

10.00am – 12.00pm

 
Paakiwaha is an exciting weekly two hour current affairs program hosted by Willie Jackson and featuring topical national kaupapa from a Māori perspective.
 
Since it began in 2002, Paakiwaha has made a key contribution to Waatea's vision of providing a Māori current affairs format in English, a forum that provides a uniquely Māori  perspective on issues affecting primarily Māori, but ultimately all New Zealanders.
 
The aim has always been to provide opportunities for listeners to have a better understanding of kaupapa that may not get fair treatment on mainstream media, while allowing Māori and non-Māori  to engage in critical debates on those issues.

Korero Mai Ki Ahau 01/05/2016 - Wharehoka Wano
Maori provilege is an accusation that seems to be thrown up whenever mana whenua ask for a say in decisions that affect them. Taranaki’s Wharehoka Wano has seen it close up with the rancorous debate over how Maori should be represented on the New Plymouth District Council. He discusses with Eruera Morgan his hard-hitting column in the local newspaper questioning whether Treaty of Waitangi workshops and cultural responsiveness programmes really hitting the mark, and what it will take for wider society to really seeing Maori as tangata whenua, as mana whenua.
Korero Mai Ki Ahau 30/04/2016 - Willie Te Aho
Between now and September, claimants will be preparing to put their case to the Waitangi on how they see their ownership of particular bodies of water and geothermal sites and how that ownership should be recognised and managed. Parallel with that, the government will be talking with the Freshwater Iwi Leaders Group on what might be an acceptable method of allocating water rights. In Korero Mai ki Ahau this week, Eruera Morgan talks with an advisor to the group, Willie Te Aho, about progress so far and what is at stake.

Housing flip flop
WILLIE JACKSON: It wasn’t the best 7 days for John Key who flip flopped on housing at the start of the week and was escorted into the weekend with front page news that his lawyer has been mysteriously caught up in the Panama foreign trust debacle.
Here's my response to your opinion piece on Ture Whenua.
CLAUDETTE HAUITI: Why amend? It’s pretty simple really: there are over 27,000 blocks of Māori land under Te Ture Whenua Māori Act 1993 Act, that’s 1.4 million hectares or about five percent of the total land in Aotearoa. Owners, are shackled by antiquated policy preventing them from developing their lands hence the amendment to the act.
All Blacks on top again
WILLIE JACKSON: The All Blacks took another step in advancing rugby as a global game when they won the best team award at the Laureus awards last week. These awards are the Academy awards of world sport and our team beat some of the greatest sports outfits in the world.
