Whangārei hapū are meeting at Terenga Paraoa Marae this weekend to discuss how to work together not just on treaty settlement issues but also how they should deal with central and local government.

Whangārei hapū kaimahi Huhana Lydon says treaty settlement negotiations can be all-consuming, and it's good to sometimes look around at what else needs considering.

She says as well as a whakapapa session to give people a better idea of what unites and divides the various hapū, there will be a wānanga on what has emerged from Tribunal and claim settlement processes.

"We've got the stage on Waitangi Tribunal findings for Ngāpuhi on tino rangatiratanga. We've also got the Ngāpuhi speaks recommendations and even constitutional models presented in Matika Mai. We're going to be examining the entire spectrum of issues impacting on us, keeping those negotiation things in front of us but looking fundamentally at how we can work together and why we should work together as hapū," Ms Lyndon says.

Similar hui are being held throughout Ngāpuhi.

If Jacinda wants to win a second term, she needs to tell us her new 100 day vision
Martyn 'Bomber'Bradbury: Last election, Andrew Little looked at the slumping polls 3 moths out from the 2017 ballot and said, 'I can't lead this Party to victory', and in the most unselfish, most progressive political move in NZ history, stood aside to allow Jacinda Ardern to become leader.
The Maaori Party could spoil Jacinda's dreams for a second term
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: The Māori Party have selected the exceptionally talented Debbie Ngarewa-Packer as their candidate in the very vulnerable seat of Te Tai Hauāuru and it represents the biggest threat to Jacinda's dreams for a second term than any other political challenge.
Why National's beneficiary bashing is really dog whistle politics
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: National has promised a spiteful range of draconian measures against beneficiaries that have nothing whatsoever to do with helping those on the benefit and everything to do with dog whistling to National's reactionary base.
