The Government is promising to work with hapu and iwi and Maori organisations to ensure that Maori have fair and equal access to housing and opportunities for home ownership.

In the speech from the throne delivered at today’s opening of parliament, Governor General Dame Patsy Reddy said the Government also intended to review the Whanau Ora delivery model so it can achieve its full potential, support the teaching of te reo Maori in schools, and strengthen programmes to enhance Maori educational achievement.

It committed to completing treaty settlements as quickly and fairly as it can, and to consider what the treaty relationship might look like after historical grievances are settled.

The Governor General said the government intends to be one of inclusion, transformation and aspiration.

'Te Honongona' Urban Māori Stories
ODT Cartoon outrage misplaced
We should collectively be righteously appalled at the tone deaf ODT cartoon that made light of the terrible measles epidemic that has killed over 50 children in Samoa. It was an ugly 'joke' that shouted white privilege, but calls to boycott the ODT, sack the cartoonist and the enormous social media wave of fury seem to me to be grotesquely misplaced.
A Collins' Guide to Cultural Colour Blindness
Dr Rawiri Taonui: Utilising ‘white’ as a metaphor for ‘a person or woman of colour’ conveys connotations of white superiority.
If we legalise Cannabis, Maori must be given a leading role in industry to influence it
Martyn 'Bomber'Bradbury: If we are going to legalise cannabis, then Māori must be given a leading role in the newly established legal industry.
