The struggling Maori Anglican boarding schools could have a new champion.

Hundreds of Anglicans flocked to Manutuke Marae on Saturday for the installation of the Bishop of Tairawhiti, Don Tamihere, as Archbishop of Aotearoa.

Ikaroa Rawhiti MP and Anglican lay reader Meka Whaitiri says highlights were a sermon by Herewini Kaa challenging continued racism within the church, and the role played on the day by students from Te Aute, Hukarere and the local kura.

"That is probably a symbol of where this new archbishop is going to go in terms of focusing on our rangatahi and to make sure they are part and parcel of the changes Don's going to bring to the role in terms of the Maori voice and particularly with our Maori Anglican schools who have not been supported as well as many would have (liked), particularly Tipene, Queen Victoria and Turakina which have all closed," she says.

The Politics of Kindness
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: There's been a bit of debate online right now about what it means to have 'New Zealand values'. NZ First have brought the issue up by wanting a 'Values Test' for migrants and John Tamihere has written some thoughts in his latest NZ Herald column
Where's the business backbone?
John Tamihere: It beggars belief that business confidence is down, and to me this reflects major problems based on capacity and capability of our business leaders.
We are not mates with Australia
John Tamihere: Let's get the conclusion of this opinion piece out of the way, up front, and quickly. It's a myth that we are mates.
