A warning that Maori need to be vigilant to protect the gains of the treaty settlement process.

It comes from the chief executive of fisheries settlement trust Te Ohu Kaimoana, which is gearing up for fights on the proposed Kermadec ocean sanctuary and on changes to the Fisheries Act.

Dion Tuuta says officials and politicians are coming up with initiatives and high level policy changes which would roll back rights recognised in the fisheries settlement.

He says anyone involved in Treaty of Waitangi settlements needs to remember that governments forget.

"Twenty odd years after signing the Treaty (of Waitangi), governments forgot the promises the treaty contained. If you look at the Kermadecs, the same sort of thing applies. And I think it has the potential to happen too at the iwi level with individual iwi settlements. Maori and iwi need to be vigilant the crown doesn't forget to maintainand honour those obligations," he says.

Mr Tuuta hopes the election of Bill English as prime minister could make resolution of the Kermadec ocean sanctuary issue easier.

JOHN TAMIHERE: Around the world new governments’ assert their mana as a new administration in their first 100 days in office. But unlike President Trump’s first 100 days where nothing happened, the Labour-led coalition is changing the culture of government as much as its substance, very quickly and very early.
Based on media reporting of League violence, we don't like Pacific Islanders much do we?
MARTYN 'BOMBER' BRADBURY: Since when did we dislike Pacific Islanders so much? I don't know about you, but this weird myopic media focus on Pacific Island 'violence' after the League games currently playing up and down the country seems bewilderingly racist and vicious doesn't it?
