Iwi leaders are meeting in Wellington, with a big question mark around its relationships with the new Government.

The Iwi Leaders Forum had strong links to the Maori Party, and made much of its access to ministers in the previous Government.

Topia Rameka from Ngati Tuwharetoa says it's now a different environment.

"The forum needs to understand what are all the roles the different ministries now play so that's one thing we need to get our heads around. The kaiupapa of the Iwi Chairs Forum stays the same regardless of what government is in place and our kaupapa is quite simple. It's about advancing the interests of our people, ahakoa no hea," he says.

Government Ministers will attend the forum tomorrow.

Peters right to pursue leak in court
John Tamihere: It's remarkable how we can all look and hear someone say or conduct themselves and come away with hugely varying understandings.
Love him or loathe him Winston Peters will be (well, soon to be) Prime Minister
John Tamihere: Love him or hate him, vote for him or against him, either way, Winston Peters will be Prime Minister - albeit as acting PM only.
Time for government to step up and sort out 'after-hours debacle' says Tamihere
John Tamihere: On Friday - the first day of winter - Westies will see billboards, adverts and information directing them to free medical care at Waitākere Hospital's Accident and Emergency department.
