Bypassing RMA could result in protest, years of court action
2020.05.09 02:42 lolpolice88Bypassing RMA could result in protest, years of court action
https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/te-manu-korihi/416100/bypassing-rma-could-result-in-protest-years-of-court-action " Meriana Johnsen, Journalist[[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]?subject=Bypassing%20RMA%20could%20result%20in%20protest,%20years%20of%20court%20action) What do Ihumātao and the Kaikōura highway rebuild have in common? They were consented using types of legislation designed to bypass public consultation in order to build houses and roads faster. The result: protest from tangata whenua and the public over the desecration of wāhi tapu, and in the case of Ihumātao, years of court action culminating in the largest land occupation since Bastion Point. Cabinet has approved an amendment to the Resource Management Act, due to be passed in June, which would take away the ability of the public and councils to have an input into large shovel ready projects the government wishes to fast-track to stimulate the economy. There are more than 1800 project submissions currently before cabinet. Councils across the country are lining up with their wishlists of new water pipes, roads and even ports, in the hope the government will approve them so they can bypass public consultation. Auckland mayor Phil Goff, who has 73 projects he's vying for approval, said he wouldn't support removing public participation in normal times, "but we are living in anything but normal times." Fast-tracking resource consents in times of crisis isn't new - after the 2016 Kaikōura earthquake, the National-led government passed the Hurunui/Kaikoura Earthquakes Recovery Bill 2016, which prevented applications for resource consent from being publically notified, or only given limited notification. However, it did require that if the work was to take place in areas relating to the nine local iwi - Ngāti Apa ki te Rā Tō, Ngāti Kōata, Ngāti Kuia, Ngāti Rārua, Ngāti Tama ki Te Tau Ihu, Ngāti Toa Rangatira, Rangitāne o Wairau, Te Atiawa o Te Waka-a-Māui, and Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu (or any papatipu rūnanga of Ngāi Tahu) they were to be notified. From there, iwi had 15 days to comment in writing on the consent - but the legislation barred them from appealing against it. Fast forward a few years, and members of Ngāti Kuri (the Kaikōura sub-tribe of Ngāi Tahu) were locked in a battle to stop the Transport Agency building a 6m wide, 22km long walking and cycling path over top of their ancestor's graves. Cycleway proponents said it would increase tourism, with one feasibility study by the Marlborough District Council in 2017 estimating a $19m a year boost to the region's wealth. But tangata whenua felt they had given enough of their coastline to the rebuild and they marched, petitioned and even threatened occupation if the cycleway was built, resulting in the Transport Agency finally agreeing to stop work in January this year. One of those leading out the fight against the cycleway was Sharon Raynor (Ngāti Kurī). "Through the Emergency legislation they blocked the community rights, and freedoms... They stole our Kaikōura coastline, blocked us from mahinga kai areas and digging through cultural significant sites." "They were supposed to be here to open the roads, but projects continued with many new builds including cycleways and tourism viewing platforms along the coast... Now here they go again - expect this time it's to the entire nation."
Legislation to address housing crisis led to Ihumātao occupation
It's not just earthquakes and pandemics that prompt the government to pass legislation to speed up resource consenting. The then-National-led government passed the Housing Accords and Special Housing Areas Act 2013 (HAASHA) to increase supply of housing by making it easier for local councils to rezone land for development. The legislation did not require full public notification of applications for development proposals, like the one put forward by Fletcher Building to build 480-houses on the 33 hectares of land at Oruarangi in Mangere. If the public had been allowed their say, that development would never have been approved, occupation leader Pania Newton said. She was skeptical of the small panel of experts, chaired by an Environment Court judge, that would be tasked with approving consent for the shovel ready projects. "You look to that Court of Appeal case which found the EPA failed to take into consideration Māori values and to uphold Te Tiriti o Waitangi, and so to me, I just question these agencies and wonder if they are properly and adequately protecting the rights of Māori and including Māori in the decision-making process." "If the government aren't careful, then potentially they could face issues like Ihumātao in the future as a result of this proposed law change."
Waitangi Tribunal consistently finds the RMA breaches the Treaty
Even the Resource Management Act itself is not treaty compliant. The findings of the Waitangi Tribunal report into freshwater, published in August last year, were unequivocal: the resource management act did not uphold Te Tiriti o Waitangi. This was not the first time the Waitangi Tribunal had ruled this - the Ngawha tribunal in 1993, was the first to report the treaty clause in the RMA was weak, as it did not require those exercising power under the Act to conform to the treaty, only "take [it] into account." The freshwater report noted that various other tribunal panels had found the RMA breached the treaty, but "very few recommendations made in previous Tribunal reports have been implemented." These recommendations include: improving mechanisms for delivering control to Māori, capacity building for Māori, and a requirement that decision makers must act consistently with the principles of the Treaty. Co-chair of the freshwater committee at Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu, Dr Te Marie Tau, said the government continuously ignores these findings. "This is a government that ignores treaty requirements and legislation." The chair of Ngāti Kahungunu, Ngahiwi Tomoana, is representing the Iwi Chairs Forum in negotiations with the government over this proposed new legislation that would bypass the RMA. He said they should have been consulted before the proposed legislation was even announced. "The fast-tracked legislation allows for iwi to input later but just the same as any group - NGO, council, affected party - rather than a treaty partner." "We recognise these are extraordinary times but we'd expected that during extraordinary times a Treaty partner would be shoulder to shoulder in a whole lot of aspects, so we are reacting to it, rather than helping design it." While the Minister for the Environment David Parker had reassured him iwi would be apart of the legislation design, Tomoana said there was nothing to back that up. "We sit here with bated breathe... but it seems like same old, same old." As Tomoana waits to hear if maybe this time iwi will be treated as partners, the likes of Ihumātao and the Kaikōura cycleway serve as cautionary tales, for how attempts to bypass public consulation can slow, rather than speed up infrastructure projects."

2020.02.08 03:54 lolpolice88Waitangi Day without the politicians is the best Waitangi Day of all
https://thespinoff.co.nz/atea/07-02-2020/waitangi-day-without-the-politicians-is-the-best-waitangi-day-of-all/ " Waitangi Day brings together all groups of people, of which politicians are just one, writes Leonie Hayden. I travelled up to Waitangi with a Ngāti Kahungunu friend, her first time there on Waitangi Day, and my fourth. Arriving at Te Tii marae on Wednesday morning, having missed the leaders’ welcome the day before, we took a stroll around the grounds. The heat was oppressive but there was comfort in knowing wherever you are in Waitangi, the beach is just metres away. The official pōwhiri was moved to Te Whare Rūnanga at the upper Treaty grounds a few years ago, the whare built by Sir Āpirana Ngata in 1940 that has been deemed a more “neutral” space for political goings on. There were no politicians there at Te Tii that I could see, no press throng. It’s the by Māori, for Māori space. Our time to wānanga with each other, argue, support, sing and learn. There was the usual assortment of delicious food (within 10 minutes of arriving I was happily munching on creamed pāua and fry bread), romiromi massage, stalls selling tino rangatiratanga and United Tribes flags (the must-have accessory for Waitangi), taonga and rongoā. There were families and laughter everywhere, tourists mingling with hau kainga on the ātea and pockets of waiata drifting up over a stereo blasting reggae off in the distance. We headed into the forum tent, the heartbeat of Waitangi. Inimitable lawyer and activist Annette Sykes was mid-tirade about Māori men who denigrate young Māori women, calling Shane Jones and his ilk a “weed” that is strangling te ao Māori. She called for te reo-speaking women to be given speaking rights on the pae. “Our people say ‘that’s kawa, only men can stand on the front row and talk’. I say, why do we allow men who speak English to speak over Māori women who speak Māori?” The panel following was named 250 Years of Colonisation, with the focus on prisons. Former inmate Billy MacFarlane, founder of tikanga-based rehabilitation programme Pūwhakamua, spoke of the difficulties in keeping former inmates on the path to rebuilding their lives. Not because of reoffending but because so many men under his guidance were still being punished for things like being late to probation hearings. “They’re going back inside for minor things because these judges don’t know the progress they’ve made, or don’t care. It’s all punishment and no aroha. And all their hard work is for nothing. It’s twice as hard to stay on the right track when they come out after the second lag, or the third.” 📷 A PANEL OF FORMER INMATES TALK ABOUT THE LEGACY OF COLONISATION AND ITS IMPACT ON THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM (PHOTO: LEONIE HAYDEN) The men sitting alongside MacFarlane, sporting t-shirts with the slogan “250 years of bullshit”, shared their stories of abusive childhoods, of perpetuating violence themselves, their time in prison and the hopelessness they’ve felt in the face of the justice system. They talked about finding strength and mana in tikanga Māori and ended with a haka taught to them by MacFarlane, their voices rising up with pride. A fascinating panel about the Māori economy followed. Head of He Puna Marama Trust in Whangārei and founder of the InnoNative market, Raewyn Tipene, spoke of the need for disruption. “Everything we do must be thought of, strategically, as rebellion. Even if we have to keep it on the down low. “I was reading the other day abut how the education system is broken. It’s not. It’s working exactly as it was supposed to – keeping us under control and contained. “Don’t listen to the linear mindset of how to get wealthy, because it’s not set up for us. I’m not talking about becoming millionaires. I’m talking first and foremost about feeding ourselves, feeding our whanaunga. About working collectively, selling our excess to each other, or bartering. The organic revolution is sitting on our doorsteps.” Maki Herbert Kaye followed. Kaye is a healer who makes cannabis products; in 2016 she completed a home detention sentence for cannabis cultivation and possession. She spoke of the need for self-determination including ignoring laws that are made simply to punish. “All that [conviction] did for me is strengthen my tino rangatiratanga. I decided I was still going to keep growing, to help my people.” She said that although medicinal marijuana will be legal from April 1 this year, it will be pharmaceutical grade not the organic product she makes. “It will still cost you $400 to $2000 a month. I provide my services for about $50 a month, and I’ve helped people with cancers, anorexia, diabetes… I’ve taken myself off the benefit, I’m helping my people and I’m helping myself.” Kaye said she learned how to make medicinal cannabis products online, and encouraged others to use “Dr. Google” too. Taking a break from the tent, we wandered into a lacklustre presentation by James Shaw at the Sustainable Coastlines tent about a new initiative to plant 30,000 native stems along the Waitangi river (to be fair they were only given a few days’ notice of the launch, but I expected the Greens co-leader to have a much stronger mihi up his sleeve for such occasions). He was followed by a Northland Regional Council representative, and despite the offer of free smoked kahawai, there are only so many politicians mangling te reo I can handle, so we left before it ended. 📷 KAI (PHOTO: LEONIE HAYDEN) Down the way, Destiny Church’s rebranded political party Vision NZ were setting up a stall. One of the slogans across the back of the tent said ‘Kiwi land in Kiwi hands’. We didn’t have to wait long to unpack that particular sentiment – “Bishop” Brian Tamaki dropped a number of racist clangers about immigration in a sermon (a sermon!) at Te Whare Rūnanga the next day. Back out in the market place, we bought ourselves some goodies from Mauri Botanicals – kūmarahou flowers to make tea and oils that help with respiratory issues; a scented oil named Aroha and some kawakawa soap. A hāngī stall called to us, and we ate a hearty late lunch with pūhā and more fry bread. Back in the forum tent, Tame Iti lead a conversation on Mana Motuhake, speaking to a packed tent about his life and supporting movements like the one at Ihumātao. Ihumātao leader Pania Newton, who believed a resolution would be announced before Waitangi Day, gave a history of the land protection movement, and talked about her frustration with Māori politicians, such as Peeni Henare, claiming that their hands are tied. “That’s alright for you to say, you can go back Te Rarawa and you have hundreds and hundreds of acres of whenua. We only have 34 acres left!” Later, Hone Harawira spoke passionately about Māori men humbling themselves and not speaking over Māori women, a welcome theme that was starting to emerge from the day’s kaupapa. Weary from the heat but full in heart and mind from a day of incredible kōrero, we headed back to our accommodation – an eccentric cabin on the banks of the Waitangi river with an equally eccentric menagerie of rescue animals (including a calf that knocked over my glass of wine and drank it off the table) – to prepare for an early start the next day. 📷 JACINDA ARDERN AT THE BARBECUE WITH JAMES SHAW, DUNCAN WEBB (L) AND DOVER SAMUELS (PHOTO: FIONA GOODALL/GETTY IMAGES) Before day broke on Waitangi Day, we bundled ourselves into the car at 4.30am to head back to the upper Treaty grounds for the annual dawn service. As usual the whare was packed with national leaders of all stripes, with onlookers spreading out onto the grounds in their hundreds, silent in the darkness, watching on large screens. Prayers were said in English and te reo by politicians, church leaders, civil servants and the heads of police, fire service and the defence force. I understand the desire to include blessings of all denominations in the service, but I imagine visitors to Waitangi must think us a much more God-fearing country than we really are. To finish, Ngāti Hine leader Pita Tipene, chairman of the Waitangi Trust, paid tribute to the hapū of Ngāti Rahiri and Ngāti Kahu whose ancestral land we stood upon, and impressed on us that Ngāpuhi is a collective of distinctive hapū, and must be approached as such if a settlement and unity is to be found. He gave a brief history of the carving of Te Whare Rūnanga, and talked about how the wood was taken from Mōtatau, the beautiful whakairo made by carvers from all over the country in 1934. He acknowledged a shared Pākehā ancestor for Ngāpuhi, a commander of the New South Wales 58th regiment who came to Northland and never left. Like many others over the past few days, he paid special tribute to Treaty Negotiations minister Andrew Little for his whaikōrero two days earlier at the leaders pōwhiri. Little had stood on the pae and spoken in te reo Māori for 10 minutes with no notes, acknowledging both the Declaration of Independence as well at the Treaty and recognising that Ngāpuhi did not cede sovereignty to the Crown. As was pointed out to me by my Ngāpuhi friend, biculturalism has too often been a euphemism for assimilation – a philosophy Māori alone have had to embrace with very little meeting in the middle by tauiwi. Little’s recent interview with RNZ, where he spoke of how nervous he was but how transformed he’s been by his time as Treaty minister, is a satisfying example of the relationship working both ways, and the contribution of te ao Māori to our leaders and Treaty partners. Finally, in an impromptu act, Tipene gave the last word to Mere Mangu, the new Ngāpuhi rūnanga chair, who spoke only in te reo Māori. Mangu had been heckled by some men for speaking on the pae days earlier at the leaders’ welcome, to which she had staunchly replied: “If they knew my whakapapa, they wound’t have done that.” The service ended with ‘Whakarongo Mai’, a beautiful Ngāpuhi waiata composed in the 1980s by a school teacher about the importance of retaining te reo Māori. A bag piper played under the flagstaff as the sun rose on Waitangi. Parked in front of the flagstaff was Te Rau Aroha, a small 1930s-era truck gifted from children of the “Native Schools” of Northland to the 28th Māori Battalion. To mark the importance of the Māori Battalion A-Company to the area, a new museum has been opened on the Treaty grounds named after the truck, which followed the young men into battle, providing their creature comforts, their letters from home, and a place to whakawhanaungatanga, whose history I learned about in this touching piece by RNZ reporter Eden Fusitu’a. The museum building is a stunning piece of symbiotic design, with two pou marking the entrance that represent Tūmatauenga, atua of war, and Rongo-mā-Tane, atua of peace. And with that, the annual prime minister’s breakfast began. Jacinda Ardern and a host of MPs lined-up to serve a barbecue breakfast to a snaking queue of hundreds. Media and cameras jostled for space to get the perfect shot, the prime minister grinning broadly as she dished bacon onto the plates that were moved along by organisers at a spectacular rate. She was ushered away after about half an hour, while Chlöe Swarbrick, Andrew Little, Willie Jackson and others happily continued to feed the hungry masses. We didn’t join the queue. Thousands of people began to pour into the grounds, to enjoy a day of waka, kapa haka and live music (and more excellent food). Exhausted, we napped for a while, emerging for a huge feast of smoked fish, more fry bread, ika mata, mussel fritters and ice cream. We spent the rest of the day snacking, swimming and watching the impressive and beautiful synchronicity of the waka in the bay. Some might call this year’s Waitangi proceedings uneventful, as they have the two years prior. Since the prime minister’s 2018 commitment to spending real time in the area, you could say the atmosphere has become less fraught. But uneventful it isn’t. Anger and protest exist, but more importantly, for me, the discourse is as strong as ever. Our Māori leadership is more diverse than ever and we are obviously determined to have hard conversations, not just about the government, but also amongst ourselves. About evolving kawa and tikanga, about the colonised voices inside of us. The combination of the joyous and the confronting is what sets hui Māori apart. With community and conversation at the centre, our people are pushing for self-determined transformation because let’s face it, change has always come from within our communities, despite, not because of those with political power. This will always be the strength of Waitangi Day for me."
2020.02.05 07:10 lolpolice88The treaty of Waitangi was forged to exclude Māori women – we must right that wrong Emma Espiner World news
https://www.theguardian.com/world/commentisfree/2020/feb/05/the-treaty-of-waitangi-was-forged-to-exclude-maori-women-we-must-right-that-wrong "The signing of the treaty marks the point at which Māori women began to be written out of history This year I’m not interested in the symbolism of what Jacinda Ardern does or doesn’t do or say at Waitangi. I’m looking to the Mana Wāhine Kaupapa inquiry. Nearly 30 years since it was instigated, the inquiry investigates the role of the Crown in contributing to the disadvantage that has inequitably burdened wāhine Māori since the Treaty was signed. At the end of this month a judicial conference will be held to consider the claims. The impact of colonisation on Māori women appears more obvious to me when we have a female prime minister visiting Waitangi. The spotlight on Pākehā women in this setting reminds me of who has been left behind, because the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi marks the point at which Māori women began to be written out of history. It has been left to us to rediscover what was erased. Writing in 1998, Ani Mikaere collected the evidence for Māori women’s roles in pre-colonial Aotearoa. Mikaere, a barrister and solicitor and scholar, showed that many Māori women held chiefly positions but were prevented from signing the Treaty. She points to the influence of Christianity in making it difficult for settlers to conceive of women holding autonomous leadership roles. There are documented cases where the Crown simply refused to allow female chiefs to sign. The settler scholars who transmuted our oral language into a written one reframed our myths and legends so that our female deities were subservient to the male. These same “historians” assumed that our chiefs were all men and wrote them into the histories as such. Our pronouns and many of our names were gender-neutral long before the concept became a source of anxiety for conservative columnists, so it was straightforward for ethnographers to assign a male gender to the chiefs named in our oral tradition. Māori women leaders simply disappeared. Data from the Ministry for Women in 2018 shows the pay gap for Māori women is 18%, compared to the national gender pay gap of 9.4%. The same figures show Māori women face an unemployment rate of 11%, compared with the national rate of 4.5%. We’re unsafe in our homes, experiencing domestic violence at unacceptably high rates, with 57% of Māori women likely to experience intimate partner violence compared with 34% of European New Zealand women. If recent trends persist, this year we’re on track for 14 women to be killed by an intimate partner, and if you’re Māori and poor it is much more likely to be you. Māori women make up 64% of the female prison population, leading Treaty and constitutional law expert Moana Jackson to call us [per capita] the most imprisoned indigenous women in the world. Being reduced to tears at Waitangi in 1998 is the only instance I can recall of former prime minister Helen Clark being publicly vulnerable. Titewhai Harawira said that Clark should not be allowed to speak while Māori women were denied the privilege. Harawira herself was offered the opportunity to speak in 2014 but demurred in favour of Annette Sykes, a Māori lawyer and political activist. When asked about this experience, Sykes told the national broadcaster RNZ that she was part of a continuum “of women like Titewhai, like Dame Mira Szaszy, who argued for human rights for Māori women to be extended beyond the kitchen, beyond inside the wharenui out on to the marae ātea”. Kathie Irwin, writing in 1992, said that the Treaty disrupted the partnership between Māori men and women. That the partnership between Māori and Pākehā men was forged in ways which exclude Māori women. It is sadly apparent that some Māori men have used the Pākehā system to unfairly leverage themselves above Māori women. A Māori minister of the Crown, Shane Jones, recently dismissed Pania Newton, one of the Māori leaders behind the peaceful land occupation at Ihumatāo, as a little flower. Speaking to RNZ, Newton said she felt the remarks were an attack on all Māori women leaders and the legacies of Māori women in political sovereignty movements. I agree. We will have to do better than reducing our women leaders to floral arrangements if we’re going to right the wrongs of the last 180 years. The solution is simpler than you might think. Māori women are already doing the necessary work in our communities. We just need to be trusted by the Crown, and funded accordingly, to reverse the harm they have caused. We’ve tried it their way and gotten nowhere - there’s nothing to lose, and everything to gain.

2019.08.08 18:24 lolpolice88Knowing Your Tātai: Jade Kake on hapū rangatiratanga, whakapapa and Ihumātao
https://www.pantograph-punch.com/post/knowing-tatai " Jade Kake on Ihumātao and the complexities of the Crown-led settlement process. Ko Jade Kake tōku ingoa. He uri ahau nō Ngāpuhi, Te Whakatōhea, Te Arawa. Kāhore ōku whakapapa ki a Ihumātao. Before I offer some thoughts, I want to start by recognising hapū rangatiratanga first and foremost, and acknowledge that, at least from my perspective, those who are not mana whenua do not have the right to a view on the take at Ihumātao. Notwithstanding that, given the scale of the occupation and significant media coverage, Ihumātao has become emblematic of wider Māori and Indigenous struggles. Without trivialising the specific experiences and perspectives of the whānau and hapū directly affected, those who whakapapa to the whenua and maintain ahi kā, Ihumātao has come to symbolise something beyond the initial take itself. These are the things that I – as a wāhine Māori who has worked as a designer on papakāinga projects and as an advocate for Māori housing – may be qualified to comment on. Entering into dialogue around Ihumātao is an uncomfortable space for me. I resisted forming a view for a long time, mostly because I understand the complexities of intra- and inter-hapū dynamics and have experienced first-hand the unhelpful repercussions of interference by well-meaning (and sometimes, not-so-well-meaning) outsiders. I’ve watched Pākehā activists centre themselves and hijack hapū kaupapa, often in solidarity, but also, sometimes in service of their own agenda. With these thoughts in mind, I’ve chosen to wade into the fray, albeit with some trepidation.
“It’s good to know your tātai,” I told him, “but this is a wānanga for another day.”
When I spoke with one of my whanaunga about the occupation, I told him I didn’t think I was entitled to have a view, because I am not from Ihumātao. In response he asked, “Who says you’re not from there?” He then proceeded to share our (to my mind long-distant) whakapapa to the whenua. “It’s good to know your tātai,” I told him, “but this is a wānanga for another day.” One of our kuia told me that, in her view, “Ihumātao is an issue of tīkanga, and when our kaumātua make decisions, we must not takahī on their mana. But [and there is a caveat] our rangatira [our leaders – formally mandated or otherwise] must also talk to their people, and this must include tai tamariki.” Another uncle told me he was thinking of travelling to Ihumātao in support because he could relate first-hand to the experience of an iwi authority speaking over mana whenua. As demonstrated by the huge numbers of people who have turned out in support of Save Our Unique Landscape (SOUL) and mana whenua of Ihumātao, there’s a lot to relate to. It must have been sometime around mid-2014 when Te Warena Taua called me. As an advocate and organiser, I was part of a rōpū bringing a housing kaupapa to Makaurau Marae, located in Ihumātao village. As the rūnanga chairperson, Te Warena wanted to be sure that my rōpū wasn’t presuming to speak on behalf of Te Kawerau ā Maki or interfere in iwi business. I listened as he explained the challenge ahead of them. I felt pōuri for the whānau there, having lost so much and now being caught up in a seemingly impossible situation. I met Pania Newton later (perhaps in 2017), at Te Puni Kōkiri offices in Manukau where I was attending a meeting for another housing kaupapa, and was intensely moved by her focus and sustained commitment to her whānau and her whenua. In a recent interview, Te Warena Taua drew a comparison between the disagreements amongst mana whenua at Ihumātao and the tensions and disagreements within Ngāpuhi, an iwi he also has whakapapa to: “You show me one iwi in this country that’s stuck together and isn’t split. Look at Ngāpuhi – how many years down the track, they still haven’t come together for their own settlement yet, and [there are] many of them that are coming here.” I believe he hit on a key issue facing our hapū and iwi: as Māori we make decisions by consensus, as a collective. This is severely compromised by Crown processes, which pick winners and losers and pit us against one another. On this matter, there are lessons at Ihumātao that are relevant to us all, ngā hapū kātoa.
We voted as a block – a decisive kāhore.
Last year, our hapū within Whangārei collectively mobilised to respond to the ‘evolution’ of the Tūhoronuku mandate, a Crown-led proposition that was supposed to end the stalemate and allow Ngāpuhi to progress to a united settlement. As hapū kaimahi we worked hard, under immense time pressure and with no financial resources, to understand the complexities (and omissions) of the Crown’s proposal, and to present the information in a way that would support informed hapū decision-making. The outcome was that 70 of the 110 hapū of Ngāpuhi voted against the evolved mandate proposal. As Whangārei hapū (defined for the purposes of this process as Te Orewai, Ngāti Hau, Ngāti Kahu o Torongare, Te Parawhau, Ngāti Takapari, Ngāti Kororā, Te Waiariki, Te Uriroroi, and Patuharakeke) we voted as a block – a decisive kāhore. Through it all, our main principle was to protect our whanaungatanga from what was a divisive process, which we largely did. At our Ngāti Hau Hui-ā-Hapū, for example, the room burst into song at the end of the vote. We might have made it through the latest challenge, but it wasn’t easy, and the fight is far from over. We are still working amongst ourselves to understand the implications of agreeing to a full and final settlement, and to form a shared position as Ngāpuhi. We have a Waitangi Tribunal finding from stage one of our hearings (He Whakaputanga me Te Tiriti: The Declaration and the Treaty) that demonstrates, unequivocally, that Ngāpuhi did not cede sovereignty upon the signing of Te Tiriti o Waitangi, nor upon the signing of He Whakaputanga five years earlier. The constitutional conversation is yet to be had. The Crown would prefer we focus on quantum (a formula used to calculate redress based on tribal population) and cash, but for many of us, something much bigger is at stake – our sovereignty. For many of us, this was and is the bottom line. We cannot and will not accept any settlement that undermines our sovereignty.
There are no real winners in Treaty settlements.
Pre-colonisation, our iwi were loose confederations of hapū that only had formal status when travelling outside the rohe, and had no real economic function. Nowadays, the Crown preference for dealing with iwi is enshrined within legislation. Our resource management legislation sets out requirements whereby iwi must be consulted, whereas hapū consultation is optional. The preference of the Crown for dealing with iwi entities is a source of division, creating tensions amongst our hapū, marae and whānau, establishing unnatural hierarchies and undermining our tikanga. Although there have been gains experienced in rebuilding some parts of the tribal economic base and resetting some political relationships, as Margaret Mutu will no doubt attest, there are no real winners in Treaty settlements. There is always a compromise, and very often this is an unacceptable one. SOUL have publicly stated that Ihumātao is a cultural heritage and social justice issue, not a Treaty settlement one. However, Ihumātao can be considered a national Māori issue (and an international Indigenous issue) because of what it represents in terms of colonisation, the broader historical and ongoing injustices, and the potential precedent a government response might set. Peeni Henare publicly stated that the government cannot intervene at Ihumātao as this action has the potential to undermine the Treaty settlements finalised to date. Whatever the veracity of his statements, my response is, would that be such a bad thing? Treaty settlements have criminally underpaid, and hapū have been consistently sidelined. The return of land and sovereignty to any meaningful degree is yet to occur.
...the children of whom put candles in the skulls of our tūpuna and brought them into school
Our heritage legislation is biased in favour of colonial heritage, prioritising physical archaeology over cultural intangibles. Over the past few weeks, I’ve heard about the many historic injustices at Ihumātao. These included Maungataketake being quarried and flattened for the port, a sewerage line that was placed through their mahinga kai in the 1950s, and the 85 kōiwi unearthered during development of a new runway in 2008. For me, these hit close to home because of similar experiences within our own rohe. I’m reminded of Opau, our pā site mined to fill the port in Whangārei. I’m reminded of the horror of learning about the Pākehā who acquired the land that contained our burial caves, the children of whom put candles in the skulls of our tūpuna and brought them into school. The extensive raupatu of our land, including the 1907 legislation that stole all our land below the high tide mark. The horrific degradation of our harbour, the destruction of our māhinga kai. Te mea, te mea. Closer to the present day, I’m reminded of Pūriri Park in Maunu, which was originally sold for the purposes of education, and which the Crown was then able to repurpose for housing (to be developed by Housing New Zealand) as a matter of right, without having to offer it back to the original owners. As a hapū, we chose to support and partner on the development, once it became clear that there would be no further legal recourse. Despite this, some whānau within our hapū were adamant and vocal in their opposition. They asked that the land not be developed for housing, but instead be protected as a reserve, for the benefit of all. Sound familiar? Local residents were opposed for vastly different reasons, resisting the changing demographic and perceived threat to their property values. The structural change required here is that the government must stop selling Crown land to private developers. The Crown-led settlement process is divisive, and there are significant, unaddressed flaws in the way land is considered within this process.
We all know who can afford to hire their own experts, planners and lawyers to argue against development.
One of the arguments made in support of the proposed development at Ihumātao is the shortage of land for housing in Tāmaki Makaurau. In my view, this is a red herring argument. There are better (though more politically unpopular and challenging) sites for housing, such as the acres upon acres of low-density housing in the inner city (‘brownfield’ – previously developed), golf courses (‘greenfield’ – not previously developed) and other Crown land. Yes, Māori are overrepresented in terms of living in poor-quality housing or experiencing housing need, but developing a site steeped in controversy, poorly serviced by infrastructure and overshadowing an existing papakāinga is a lazy solution. In part, I believe this is because developing land of significance to Māori is seen as the path of least resistance. Compare this with attempts to intensify development of wealthy majority-Pākehā neighbourhoods. We all know who can afford to hire their own experts, planners and lawyers to argue against development. Over the past week or so, many people have shared varying perspectives and analyses on the occupation at Ihumātao (one of the best pieces I have read is by Tina Ngata). I have seen many urban Māori and those who are not mana whenua post about Ihumātao on social media, make statements on television or radio, and write thinkpieces (much like this one) in online and print media. Some whānau from Ihumātao have publicly stated that the equivalency drawn with other occupation movements such as Bastion Point and Mauna Kea are false ones, that the issue isn’t a universal one, that those who are not from there should stop sticking their noses in the business of a hapū which is not their own. My response is this – if you are Māori (non-mana whenua) supporting at Ihumātao, I would encourage you to also go back to your hapū and understand the issues within your rohe. If you are tauiwi, find ways to support mana whenua within your area. Usually, this starts by listening and building genuine relationships. Yes, Ihumātao is significant, but hapū and whānau are constantly being bombarded with similar issues, all around the motu. If you’re moved by Ihumātao, when the action is over, turn your attention to home. I guarantee you will find similar struggles. Kia kaha e tātou mā.

https://www.facebook.com/TeNewsNgapuhiNews1st/posts/2112758888830749 " Te News Latest A Tale of Two Cities The Dark Side is making the Big Move on Ihumatao. In addition Ihumatao has been abandoned by Waikato. Te News must now ask this question: "Has the Government and its sponsors pulled the plug on Ihumatao?" In the political assessment of Te News, and according to my Aunty Cuzzy at the site, it may well be, 'all over' by lunchtime. Excellent Coverage on MTV On MTV today they ran simultaneous stories of the invasion of Ihumatao and the Kingitanga at Auckland Airport one mile away. Waikato was setting the land apart with their partners for Tainui's second hotel. Homai TE Moni The new Pulman Hotel that will be opened in 2020. A suit from the partners had this to say, "There will be a lot of jobs for Maori." Nga Pohara me nga Rawakore Meanwhile, on another part of town, Ihumatao was being invaded by 100 Cops. They have also trucked in steel mesh fences like on construction sites. The call went out today from Ihumatao for tautoko. Pania Newton, who is the Mother Theresa of Ihumatao, said, "Come down and Tautoko Ihumatao our whenua Taurikura." Many Happy Returns Meanwhile back in the corporate sector the head of Te Whakakitenga, Ms Parekawhia Maclean said, "The Waikato Novotel has been a cash cow for Waikato." The conundrum is that one part of Waikato is being invaded like in 1863. Ihumātao is 'inconvenient' as things currently stand. Martin Cooper, who is a Cultural Advisor, was on hand to assist at the Auckland Airport Hotel excavation. Martin was in his blacks. Outside the Huntly Bakery they said, 'You can't eat Baked Beans all your life.' Bad Look It is not a good look for the Government having regard to what is happening in Hawai. Te News received the TPK Award at the 2019 Matariki Awards."
