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.

State Spying and a Police who see no spying, hear no spying and speak no spying
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury:: John Campbell's remarkable investigation at the beginning of the week into a Government agency tasked with looking after earthquake survivors using corporate spies to secretly tape complaining earthquake survivors was made more important by the remarkable announcement midweek from the NZ Police that found nothing illegal in the actions of anyone involved.
