A report prepared as part of Ngapuhi’s treaty claims process says the Northland iwi did not sign away their sovereignty to the British Crown.

The independent report was commissioned by Nuki Aldridge and Titewhai Harawira on behalf of the kuia and kaumatua of Ngapuhi Nui Tonu, and draws on the evidence presented to the Waitangi Tribunal in 2010 and 2011.

It was written by academics Susan Healy, Ingrid Huygens, and Takawai Murphy, with help from Hori Parata.

They say the evidence shows the rangatira wanted the Crown to provide a Governor who would take charge of its unruly British subjects living here.

Mrs Harawira says the 1835 Declaration of Independence and the 1840 Treaty of Waitangi were the result of the friendship that Ngapuhi rangatira had with British royalty that began in 1820 with the visit by Hongi Hika and Waikato.

She says they opened a dialogue with the Crown that today’s Ngapuhi want to continue.

New award named in Maori journalist's honour. A specially designed print by renowned Maori artist Ngataiharuru Taepa will be presented to the first recipient of Te Tohu a Tanara Whairiri Kitawhiti Ngata.The first Maori journalism lifetime achievement award is to be named in honour of Maori broadcasting pioneer Whai Ngata. Mr Ngata (Ngati Porou/Te Whanau-a-Apanui), who died in April this year, played a pivotal role in the development of Maori news and current affairs during a career that spanned three decades. Massey University's 2016 Nga Kupu Ora Awards: Celebrating Maori Books and Journalism will this year recognise reporters for the first time and present an award in Mr Ngata's name. Assistant Vice-Chancellor Dr Selwyn Katene, says naming the lifetime achievement award in Whai Ngata's memory was a fitting way to pay tribute to someone who mentored so many during his long career and who played such a big part in forging a path for Maori journalism. Mr Ngata was made an Officer of the Order of New Zealand Merit in 2007 for his services to Broadcasting and retired from TVNZ in 2008 after a 25 year career with the company. This years Te Tohu a Tanara Whairiri Kitawhiti Ngata recipient will be named at the Nga Kupu Ora Awards: Celebrating Maori Books and Journalism on Monday October 3 at Auckland War Memorial Museum.
