Ngāti Porou’s customary interests in the East Coast coastal and marine area has been recognized with the passing yesterday of Ngā Rohe Moana o Ngā Hapū o Ngāti Porou Bill (No 2).

A large number of hapū representatives were at parliament yesterday to witness the third reading.

Treaty of Waitangi Negotiations Minister Andrew Little says Ngāti Porou was the only iwi to both enter into negotiations and reach a foreshore and seabed deed of agreement with the Crown under the former Foreshore and Seabed Act.

When that Act was repealed in 2011, the then-National Government said it would honour its commitments to the deed.

Mr Little says it provides a framework for customary rights recognition in the common marine and coastal area, while also recognising the Crown has a responsibility to ensure public access as well as ensure the continuation of other lawful uses of the takutai moana.

ODT Cartoon outrage misplaced
We should collectively be righteously appalled at the tone deaf ODT cartoon that made light of the terrible measles epidemic that has killed over 50 children in Samoa. It was an ugly 'joke' that shouted white privilege, but calls to boycott the ODT, sack the cartoonist and the enormous social media wave of fury seem to me to be grotesquely misplaced.
