DIANNA VAIMOSO FULL INTERVIEW CLICK HERE

 

A proposed settlement of historic claims has been a journey of rediscovery for Matamata’s Ngāti Hinerangi.

The iwi signed an agreement in principal last Friday for an $8 million settlement covering claims stemming from its support for Tauranga Moana in the Land Wars and the subsequent loss of its lands through confiscation and the activities of the Native Land Court.

Iwi trustee Dianna Vaimoso says it had to overcome a perception it was a hapū of a Ngāti Raukawa or Ngāti Hauā.

"We did have some whānau members who did some excellent research. We also had kaumatua kuia who continued to say we are an iwi, we are not a hapū, and when you put that research together with what our kaumatua kuia had learned from tipuna that is how we were able to identify exactly who we were," she says.

Ms Vaimoso says getting to an agreement in principle has been a long drawn out process, especially in working through overlapping claims so it could assert its rights in Taurangamoana without stepping on anyone’s mana.

Dr Rawiri Taonui; This column investigates how the proposed Fletcher Residential development at Ihumātao, the National government’s Special Housing Area policy and the preoccupation of the Auckland Council, the courts and statutory bodies on preserving Māori culture as an icon of the past rather than restoring the living relationship between Māori and their whenua constitutes a second confiscation
TVNZ Journalist blames Māori, not Oranga Tamariki.
OPINION - Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: TVNZ Journalist Jehan Casinader, has written a remarkably shallow evaluation of the corrosive Orange Tamariki child uplift programme and has bewilderingly concluded the problem is Māori, not the policy.
