The names of Mana Whenua representatives on Auckland’s Independent Maori Statutory board will be out today, but it’s not enough for a Waikato Tainui treaty negotiator.

Tukoroirangi Morgan says the iwi is still pursuing its claims in Auckland, independent of the settlements reached by affiliated iwi and hapu which are part of the Tamaki collective of tribes.

He told Radio Waatea host Willie Jackson representation in the governance of the super city is one of the claims.

"As one of the mana whenua iwi in this rohe we should have a seat at the top table. Stuff this being 10 steps removed from the action. We should be part of the action," Mr Morgan says.

He also believes there should be more seats on the Independent Maori Maori Board for matawaka or Maori from iwi outside Tamaki Makaurau.

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.
