Sparks are flying within Ngapuhi, as organisers of the welcome for politicians at Te Tii Marae in Waitangi try to set the kawa for the week.

Kaumatua Kingi Taurua says elders don’t want Titewhai Harawira escorting Prime Minister John Key onto the marae, and they have picked Ani Taurua for the role.

On her regular Radio Waatea talkback show, Mrs Harawira said 'given the passions aroused by the Treaty of Waitangi', the role she had created was important, and she wasn’t giving it up.

“I’m the one that takes the Prime Minister on, the Leader of the Opposition and the Governor-General. If at any stage I feel that it’s going to be unsafe, it doesn’t happen”. says Titewhai Harawira.

What happens on the lower marae will only be a small part of Waitangi, as some of the leading lights in Te ao Māori make their way to the Bay of Islands to set the agenda for the year ahead.

The New Zealand Māori Council is meeting there today to update members on last week’s water case.

The Iwi Leaders Group is also meeting to take delivery of a report from an independent Māori working party on constitutional issues.

The Waitangi National Trust hopes to hold a family-friendly, controversy-free commemoration of the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi up on the Treaty Grounds on Waitangi Day on Wednesday.

Ngā Waka Federation is welcoming visitors from around the motu and around the globe for the annual waka regatta.

Te Arawa waka built for the 1990 Commemoration will be back in the waters of Te Pewhairangi for the first time since then, and the waka permanently housed at Waitangi, Ngātokimatawhaorua, will have on board Native American, Dutch and Japanese Ainu paddlers.

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.

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.
