Ngā Rauru meets with ministers in paepae rangatira

South Taranaki iwi Ngā Rauru hopes for progress on getting the former Waverley High School after a meeting with ministers last week.

The paepae rangatira is supposed to be an annual catch-up on progress since the 2005 Treaty of Waitangi settlement, but the tribe's tumuwhakarae, Turama Hawira, says some years have been missed.

He says Ministers Chris Finlayson, Pita Sharples and Tariana Turia were surprised that the transfer of the school had stalled, and ordered action.

Mr Hawira says the regular catch-up is a way to build relationships with government agencies and ensure the small iwi isn’t forgotten by its treaty partner.

He says it has allowed it to develop good links with the Ministry of the Environment and the Department of Conservation, and also to get insulation in to 240 Nga Rauru homes.

Turama Hawira says future plans include a cultural festival to encourage Ngā Rauru to come back home, and using the school site for training and tribal businesses.

Labour owe Maori and Pacific Island communities some real wins
One of the few glimmers of hope for the Labour Party from the previous election was the growth of the Maori and Pacific Island vote. Minus their support, Labour's historic low would have been even worse.
Why proclaiming Key as the Politician of the Year is ethically bankrupt
OPINION: It is that time of year when pundits write columns to explain the 'winners' and 'losers' of the political year and already many are proclaiming that Key is this years political winner because he managed to avoid all the allegations of corruption and dirty politics to win an even larger majority than he had.
A Principled Man
OPINION: I was very honoured to be asked to speak in New Plymouth earlier this week by the Mayor of the city Andrew Judd.
