Ngāpuhi speaks report gives alternate history

One of the authors of a new report on Ngāpuhi's historic claims says it should put to bed some of the myths around the Treaty of Waitangi.

Susan Healy was on a panel commissioned by elders to write an independent report on the evidence presented in Waitangi Tribunal hearings about Ngāpuhi's views on the 1835 Declaration of Independence and the Treaty of Waitangi.

She says it's clear that northern rangatira had no intention of giving up sovereignty or governance when they signed the Treaty.

"What it bought up very strongly is that Ngāpuhi had very clear intentions going into He Wakaputanga and also into Te Tiriti, that Ngāpuhi were very clear about what they were doing, that they weren't in any way giving away their authority. What they were doing was deepening the relationship with the crown, really for trade and also so that things would be peaceful with these new settlers coming into the country," Dr Healy says.

The Ngāpuhi Speaks report was launched today at Kohewhata Marae in Kaikohe.

Northland roars
MARTYN BRADBURY OPINION: The magnitude of Winston Peter's shock win on Saturday can not be ignored. To turn a 9000 majority for National into a 4000 majority for NZ First is a like the American Rugby team beating the All Blacks by 30 points.
It looks like Winstonís.
WILLIE JACKSON OPINION: Well it looks like Winston Peters could steal the Northland by-election from the Government.
Privilege in an under privileged country
MARTYN BRADBURY OPINION: The controversy surrounding the case of the two St Bede's College rowing team who were suspended for breaching airport security only to have that suspension reversed by a High Court injunction, refuses to die down.
