Members of Bay of Islands hapū Ngāti Manu are invited to hui in Auckland this weekend to discuss whether they should try to go it alone in treaty settlement negotiations.

At Kāretū Marae last Sunday, Treaty Negotiatons Minsiter Andrew Little was told the hapū did not want to be included in the Ngāpuhi settlement.

Spokesperson Arapeta Hamilton says the hui are a chance to contrast the Ngāti Manu strategy with the proposals to evolve the Tūhoronuku mandate into the new Tūhono process.

"People need to be informed. Unfortunately they haven’t been informed appropriately by the Tūhono crowd. It’s an opportunity for them to come and korero with us about how they see things," he says.

The Ngāti Manu hui are at the Beachhaven Community House from 1pm Saturday and the MIT Marae in Otara from 10.30am Sunday.

OPINION: Will Maori suffer more convictions from new sexual assault laws?
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: The new Sexual Violence legislation the Greens are pushing through Parliament has noble intentions to make the process less traumatic on victims, but by removing defences to rape to ensure more guilty verdicts are returned, the Greens could be setting up more Māori men for convictions.
OPINION: Kindness towards South Auckland whanau more important than ever

OPINION: Kelvin Davis has another terrible day at the office
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: I am honestly not sure who is advising Minister Kelvin Davis, but his surprising decision this week to attack People Against Prisons Aotearoa (PAPA) and refer their pamphlets calling on prison reform to the Police for supposedly inciting the prison riot at Waikeria prison is such a desperately wrong footed move one is left wondering what on earth he thinks he's doing.
