Waikaremoana iwi Ngati Ruapani has placed a rahui over the lake at the centre of Te Urewera.

Kaumatua chair Tumanako Waiwai says the banapplies to all activities on the lake itself and access across all adjacent Maori land from June 25 to 29.

It's in support of the hearing in the Maori Land Court at Wairoa on June 28 of application lodged by applicants representing all descendants of the original owners.

Mr Waiwai says the rahui is to protect people and property during a particularly tumultuous political and socially disruptive time for Ngati Ruapani, Ngai Tuhoe and Kahungunu descendants of the original owners.

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.
