Ngāti Whātua Ōrakei has endorsed its current leadership, with chair Marama Royal and deputy Ngarimu Blair topping the poll for the four seats available on rotation.

New members are lawyer Julia Steenson and tā moko artist and carver Arekatera Katz Maihi, with Joe Pihema being voted off.

Revenue from property rentals increased $15 million over the year to $42 million, and the iwi declared an after-tax profit of almost $43 million.

That compares with $80 million last year.

The difference was the gain on revaluation of investment property, which was $32 million this year compared with $79 million last year.

Total equity now stands at $974 million, up $40 million for the year.

'Te Honongona' Urban Māori Stories
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.

Dr Rawiri Taonui: Utilising ‘white’ as a metaphor for ‘a person or woman of colour’ conveys connotations of white superiority.
