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.

CEO Mankau Urban Maori Authority Willie Jackson | A High Court judge had ruled that the process used to select one of the maataka representatives on Aucklands Independent Maori Statutory Board was flawed and needed to be done again. He said in picking incumbent member Tony Kake over Willie Jackson, the selection panel which only included mana whenua representatives failed to show it had considered mataawaka views.

Little's Time
OPINION: Andrew Little has to do a lot if he is to make Labour a formidable opposition, giving them any hope of toppling National in three years’ time. Little was on Tuesday voted as the man to lead Labour into a new era of politics - this was on the back of major support he got from his union mates.
The myths white people tell themselves
OPINION: John Key's extraordinary statements last week on NZ History in relation to the Waitangi Tribunal's finding that Maori did not cede sovereignty when they signed the Treaty in 1840 is a case study in ignorance, cultural arrogance and political posturing.
Waitangi Tribunal ruling enshrines Treaty as a living document
OPINION: The most significant thing about the Waitangi Tribunal ruling last week that Maori did not sign away Tino Rangatiratanga in 1840 is that it has reset with immediacy the role of the Treaty into the modern day.
