Ringatū in good heart as tamariki sing out

Tūnuiārangi Mclean was among the hundreds of who attended the commemoration at Rangiwaho Marae, Muriwai, south of Gisborne this week.

He says the turnout was a coming together of the Māori faiths, with Ratana, Pai Maarire and followers of the teachings of the Parihaka prophets also represented.

Mr Mclean says the real stars were the tamariki, they were the stars throughout.

"All the young voices, some of them only aged 5, 6, were saying the prayers and blessings and singing the waiata and hīmene of the Haahi Ringatū just as much as the elders were doing it, so for me and the majority there were saying the future of the haahi is in safe hands," he says.

A highlight was the unveiling by Hikairo, the grandson of the Māori King Tūheitia, of a stone marking the return of Te Kooti Arikirangi Te Tūruki and his followers from the Chatham Islands.

I will continue writing about the state taking children until something meaningful has occurred
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: If you have the privilege of a platform, you must endeavour to use that platform for good. I have written previous columns about the extraordinary abuse of power by the state when they take children into their 'care'.
State Spying and a Police who see no spying, hear no spying and speak no spying
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury:: John Campbell's remarkable investigation at the beginning of the week into a Government agency tasked with looking after earthquake survivors using corporate spies to secretly tape complaining earthquake survivors was made more important by the remarkable announcement midweek from the NZ Police that found nothing illegal in the actions of anyone involved.
