Tino Rangatiratanga O Te Iwi Maori

The legal status of the NZ Settlers Government

The NZ Government may not be a legally constituted body and therefore may not have the legal right to govern or to make laws. This is a constitutionally untenable situation for the Government, Parliament and the nation.

The Government cannot lay claim to sovereignty that it does not have. Maori are the only true sovereigns in New Zealand. Maori sovereignty was established in 1835 at the signing of the Declaration of Independence and was not ceded to the Crown as the Government would have us believe. The truth behind the Government treaty myth needs clarification in order to bring out the truth.

The purpose of the Treaty of Waitangi was to protect Maori from the problems of settler migration, particularly the problems associated with escaped convicts from Australia settling in New Zealand.

Under the Treaty the Settlers were given the right of occupation and governance only so far as it would protect Maori sovereignty. – Kawanatanga for the protection of Rangatiratanga no more than that.

Why would thousands of Maori cede their sovereign rights to a few hundred settlers as the Government would have us believe?

The Treaty Grievance industry is nothing compared to the over inflated rights claimed by the Government.

Article 1 of the Treaty ceded trusteeship of all Maori land to the Queen, her heirs and successors. Queen Elizabeth is the legal trustee of all Maori customary land in New Zealand where the native title has not been extinguished.

Under Article 2 of the Treaty Queen Victoria guaranteed to Maori their sovereign right to the possession of all their lands, forests, fisheries and Taonga as the legal, equitable and
beneficial owners. Article 2 reaffirmed Maori sovereignty as stipulated by articles 2 and 3 of the DOI (Declaration of Independence).

Under the terms stipulated by the DOI, from 1835 to 1840 Maori had sovereignty over everyone living in Aotearoa NZ. It was this Kawanatanga that Maori exchanged to the Crown for the protection of Rangatiratanga.

Article 3 of the Treaty gave the Queen the pre-emptive right (first right of purchase) to all Maori land in Aotearoa. To the present day the Queen has never purchased ANY MAORI LAND in Aotearoa NZ.

Any land sold in Aotearoa NZ, is and has been in defiance of article 3 of the Treaty and therefore is deemed to have been sold illegally. The purchase of land must be negotiated with the Queen directly. Maori as beneficiaries cannot sell land, that right lies solely with the Queen as Maori trustee.

Maori have never at any time lost their land, it is being illegally occupied the present New Zealand Government as has every Government before lied to its own people in the biggest confidence trick in world history.
All land in NZ is Maori Customary Land deemed to be Crown Land for certain purposes under Section 144 of Te Ture 93 and Articles 1 and 2 of the Treaty of Waitangi.

The Treaty of Waitangi conferred the right of OCCUPATION not the right to govern other than for the protection of our sovereignty and independence. All laws passed by the Parliament of Westminster were directed at the NZ Government limiting their powers over Maori.
They are not our laws.

The Declaration, the Crown Feudal and Fiducial Title

He Whakaputanga o Te Rangatiratanga o nga Uri o Nu Tirini The New Zealand Declaration of Independence 1835 is a living document which is enshrined within Te Ture Whenua Maori – Maori Land Act 1993 part XIII.

The Declaration declared Maori Sovereignty and Independence in Article 2.The rights of Tangata Whenua under the DOI are protected by the Treaty of Waitangi under Article II.

The Declaration was originally included in Part 4 of the Maori Affairs Amendment Act1967 however it was later amended by the Maori Affairs Department to favour the Government not Maori.

There were two (2) Common Law documents in existence between the DOI and the TOW(Treaty of Waitangi) which have important ramifications for Maori.

The first is the feudal title of the Crown which binds the Crown to the reciprocal obligations of service and defence in protection of the Maori people and their interests. The Crown guarantees to Maori in NZ protection against any threat to their interests or wellbeing.

This guarantee was issued under standing orders from Lord Glenelg to Major Burke Governor of NSW an administrator of NZ on behalf of the British Colonial Office.

The second is the fiducial title of the Crown. The fiducial title places an obligation upon the Crown to exercise a high standard of care in the management of Maori lands, estates, resources and funds under Letters Patent issued to Governor Hobson by Lord Normanby.

Constitutional Law in New Zealand

NZ Constitution Acts 1846 and 1852
Section 9 and 10 of the 1846 NZ Constitution Act provided Maori, under Maori Customary Law, the right to self Government within their own native districts. For Maori laws to be recognised internationally the Queen issues Letters Patent, these laws then become part of the laws of England and the United Kingdom, they are then enforceable as New Zealand law.

The 1846 NZ Constitution Act was created to preserve Article 2 of the TOW, for the preservation of Tino Rangatiratanga and to restrain the Government from any attempts to govern Maori. The existence of the 1846 NZ Constitution Act is not commonly known.

Under the 1852 NZ Constitution Act the settlers were granted the right to self government. However, Section 71 legislated the Maori right of self government through Letters Patent, issued under the Great Seal of the United Kingdom, passed first into English law, then becoming legally enforceable under NZ law.

1858 Native Districts Regulations Act allowed for the appointment by Maori Government of Native Assessors Justices of the Peace to provide jurisdiction in summary proceedings.

1858 Native Circuit Courts Act . Every court in NZ is legally required to have a Native Assessor present whenever a court sits.

This is still law today. However in defiance of the Queen rights as Sovereign, the Privy Council and the Commonwealth of UK all NZ Settlers Parliaments have ignored this requirement. This is in effect a treasonable act.

Maori have the legal right and entitlement to be represented equally alongside a Magistrate in every court in the land, this is the Queens law. The Queen has the rightful and legal ownership of NZ as Maori trustee and is the External Sovereign Head of Right to NZ whilst Maori are the Internal Sovereign Head of Right in NZ.

These Acts were passed into English law by the Parliament of Westminster and are still legally binding on the New Zealand Settlers Parliament today.

The 1986 NZ Constitution Act passed by the 4th Labour Government has no power to remove any statutory law passed by another Government. Where those Acts may not seem to exist in NZ Law, and that is debateable, they still exist in British law and are still legally binding on NZ.

There has never been any loss of Maori land in New Zealand only theft on a monumental scale by dishonest politicians

It is the responsibility of the Crown defence forces (UK and NZ) under the feudal and fudicial title obligation to protect the Maori people. The Westminster Parliament (UK) is legally bound to activate the standing orders of Lord Glenelg to Major Burke and the Letters Patent issued by Lord Normanby in defence of Maori sovereign rights.
The Crown Regent

The Queen is kept informed of what is occurring in NZ socially, economically and politically through her Regents. At present there are three Regents appointed to New Zealand, David Singh, Cliff Whiting and Joseph Murphy (Hohepa Mapiria). These three Regents are directly responsible to the Queen and her Privy Council not to the New Zealand Settlers and Migrants Government nor to the Settlers Parliament.

A Regent is defined as, quote a person who exercises the ruling power in a kingdom during the minority, absence or disability of the sovereign unquote.

With Maori being the minority in their own country and therefore disabled the Queens Regent has the status of representative of the Sovereign (us) at a legal level until such time as Maori are self Governing. The present Maori Queens Regent is Law Lord Hohepa Mapiria. (Joseph Murphy)

Te Ture Whenua Maori – Maori Land Act 1993

Te Ture Whenua Maori – Maori Land Act 1993 is an Act of the Parliament of Westminster not the NZ Settlers Parliament. It is binding on both the Crown and the Settler Government.

The words shall, control and power in part XIII allow Maori incorporations to add, alter, delete or replace any parts of the constitutions by which they are incorporated, under any provision of the Act or any regulations made under the Act or any enactment and the general law or to make changes, to add, alter, delete under special resolution any part of Te Ture Whenua Maori – Maori Land Act 1993.
The Act reads; Te Ture Whenua Maori, Maori Land Act 1993, Section 2.Interpretation of the Act generally

1. It is the intention of Parliament (Westminster) that the provisions of this Act shall be interpreted in a manner that best furthers the principals set out in the preamble to this Act.

What is in the preamble to this Act, is Kawanatanga Governorship for the protection of Rangatiratanga Sovereignty.

Te Ture provides the mechanism whereby Incorporations may create laws, statutes, regulations, or place limitations on existing laws within their own Native Districts (Waka Districts) Native Districts cover the whole country.

Section 2, subsection 2 states: Without limiting the generality of subsection 1.

It is the intention of Parliament (Westminster) that powers duties and discretions conferred by this Act shall be exercised, as far possible, in a manner that facilitates and promotes the retention, use, development and control of Maori land as Taonga Tuku Iho by Maori owners, their Whanau, Hapu and Descendents.

In the Common Law case of Nireaha Baker vs Tamaki, the presiding Judge, Lord Davey decreed that the Crown lacked unreviewable prerogative power in relation to native title and that a Crown grant did not amount to extinguishment of native title.

Therefore all land remains Maori customary land `deemed` Crown land for certain purposes.

In the event of any conflict in meaning, Contra Preferentum prevails, the Maori version takes precedence.

In the Maori version of the preamble the key word is tika.

In section 144 the word `tika` meaning `to be` would translate to Maori customary land,
for the time being, deemed to be Crown Land.

Under the Maori version, section 17 of the Te Ture Whenua Maori Amendment Act 1994subsection 3 states that; A Maori Incorporation may by special resolution of the owners, alter, add to or replace its constitution in accordance with any provision of this Act or any regulations made under this Act.

It is therefore legal under section 144 for an Incorporation to replace or alter the word `deemed` or to change the whole Act or portions of the Act under special resolution of each Incorporation relevant to that incorporation within their individual Rohe.

The Maori Financial Position today

The Trustees of the worlds biggest Bank are Prince Andrew of England and King Juan Carlos and Queen Sophia of Spain.

In 1844 Queen Victoria set up an Account whereby the NZ Government would pay taxes to the Queen for the right to occupy NZ. Because they could not afford to pay the taxes Governor Fitzroy waived the pre-emption clause to raise funds by selling land on the open market in breach of Article 3 of the Treaty of Waitangi.

This account was known as the Akaroa Bank. The Queen deposits funds paid to her by the NZ Settlers Government for the right of occupation. Governor Fitzroy overspent the fund so he was removed from office.

The NZ Settlers Government still pay taxes to the British Crown which are deposited in the London Branch of the BNZ before being transferred to the Akaroa Bank.

The interest was transferred to the New Zealand Reserve Bank, however the Settler Government was using the fund without authority so the Queen closed the account and only the interest goes to the Reserve Bank which is now the Akaroa Bank and under the control of the Business Roundtable that is, until Maori take back control of their own affairs by creating their own Government.

The Putea can only be accessed through a combination of 4 numbers held by 4 different people and known only to themselves. The first 3 numbers are here in NZ. A form of chain reaction must take place before the number combinations can be activated. Many organisations in their greed have tried to access the Putea without success it can only happen under the conditions set by the Declaration of Independence 1835. In other words only Maori Incorporations have the right to access it and only when all 10 Waka have been filled. Lease monies paid to the Crown on behalf of the other 74 Commonwealth countries are also deposited into the fund.

Since 1852 the NZ Settlers Parliament have also had to pay rent and taxes to the British Crown. This money is collected and deposited on behalf of Maori. The interest is paid into the Akaroa Bank and the principal into a Trust Fund administered by the Trustees. The principal sum is held in the United Nations and it is from this fund that the World Bank and the IMF borrow.

The interest is administered by the Reserve Bank of New Zealand and used by the NZ Government to support this countries infrastructure. It is Maori money that supports the NZ Economy.

NB. The Putea is said to be worth approx 20 trillion dollars US.

Before the Putea can be released Maori need to be a fully functioning entity under the mechanism set up under Te Ture ie. To be incorporated and readily identifiable entities to the British Crown.

Sovereignty

The Partnership has a sovereign interest throughout the Pacific Ocean.

Section 11 of the Native Districts Regulations Act 1858 states;Half castes and other persons of mixed race living as members of any native tribe and all aboriginal natives of any of the Islands of the Pacific Ocean shall for the purposes of this Act be deemed to be persons of the Native race. Thus anyone living in NZ regardless of race is classed as a person of the native race.

All indigenous peoples of the Pacific region are covered under Maori sovereignty. Under the terms of the Treaty and the 50/50 partnership between Maori and the Crown all indigenous peoples of the Pacific are sovereign in their own right.

Tangata Whenua Maori must wake up and start taking their rightful place in the great society of nations. Only when Maori assert their sovereignty can we begin to address the worlds problems especially those being faced by the people of the Pacific.
The estimated time by which Maori should have asserted their sovereignty is 2005. When this occurs the rest of the indigenous peoples of the Pacific will be free.

Maori Incorporations and Te Ture

Maori Incorporations under statutory law have the same powers as Parliament. Dealing with the Settlers Parliament is deemed to be dealing with an artificial entity. When you deal with a Maori incorporation you are dealing with a natural person(s) and a natural body.

Section 35 of Te Ture gives the same power to a Maori Land Court as a High Court. For instance Section 237 of Te Ture accords the MLC with the jurisdiction of the High Court. The High Courts jurisdiction is essentially only for Settlers because it is not a statutory body. But under section 150 of Te Ture, Maori Incorporations are independent statutory bodies over which not even the Maori Land Court has jurisdiction. The MLC is a Court of record only. The power of Te Ture is administered through the Incorporations. Sovereignty and Power are the domain of Incorporations. Through every Incorporation Maori can assert Independence, self Governance and self determination either individually or collectively without recourse to Settler law.

Maori sovereignty in the 21st Century

In order for Maori sovereignty to become fact, an Act of State has to occur. This happens when;
All ten Waka are filled. There are seven incorporations needed to fill each Waka.
A Maori Government is an identifiable entity. This is done through incorporations and the recognition of those incorporations by the Parliament of Westminster in the United Kingdom.
The Incorporation Common Seal confirms the status of each Incorporation as a legal body.
That the Seal is affixed to the incorporations documentation with
The Waka Districts Common Seal and
The Common Seal of the Upper House and General Assembly

That is an Act of State. Acts of State come into existence when the whole nation passes them into law by Proclamation

AN ACT OF STATE IS PASSED BY THE SOVEREIGN PEOPLE OF THE NATION.HOLDING MANA WHENUA, MANA TANGATA

The entire Law Society of Incorporations are the Law makers

The power to make laws comes from the resolutions of the Incorporations. Once the Seal is affixed to documentation the Incorporation is then identifiable to the Crown. Letters Patent are issued making the resolutions Law in NZ.

The DOI and Te Ture

Article 1 of the Declaration of Independence was the union of our Tupuna and their land. They incorporated themselves and their lands to form The United Confederation of Tribes in statute under English Law. This has been re-enacted under Section 247 of Te Ture Whenua Maori Maori Land Act 1993.

Article 2 of the Declaration affirmed their sovereignty to the land. This re-enactment is contained in Section 250 of Te Ture 93.

Settler Government violations of Maori Rights since 1840

1841
Land Settlements Act: Lands not actually occupied by Maori were deemed to belong to the Crown. This was in direct contravention of Articles 2 and 3.

1844
Governor Fitzroy removes the Crown right of pre-emption. With the removal of the pre-emption clause Fitroy sanctions the illegal right of land purchase to settlers. Fitroy was later removed for financial mismanagement.

1846
Governor Grey abolishes the Protectorate Department giving Edward Gibbon Wakefields New Zealand Land Company the exclusive right of pre-emption in breach of Article 3.

By 1852 in just 12 years the Crown had illegally taken over 32,000,000 acres of Maori land. Nearly half of all land owned by Maori had been taken in a legally sanctioned land grab.

!852
New Zealand Constitution Act
The establishment of Provincial Government in New Zealand. Maori right to self Government defined under Section 71 of the Act. Provision for Maori self Government is ignored.

1859
The illegal purchase of Ngati Awa land by Governor Grey in breach of Article 2 of Te Tiriti.
By 1860 only 21,000,000 of the original 66,400,000 acres of Maori land was left.

1862
Native Lands Act was designed to break down communal ownership of land, the legacy of which we are paying for now. Maori land ownership has become so fragmented it is of little use to most owners. It is this situation which Te Ture Whenua Maori, the Maori Land Court Act 1993 seeks to redress.

1863
The Suppression of Rebellion Act. The removal of Maori right to trial under the Habeus Corpus Act. Maori imprisoned for defending their land ownership rights. Another 3,000,000 acres land grab as punishment for rebelling against the Government.

1864
All remaining land reserved for Maori was placed under Government control.

1865
Native Land Court Maori were forced to wait months to appear before the Native Court to validate land claims. Failure to appear gave the Court the right to take the land. Many Maori preferred to lose their land rather than go through the humiliating process of having to appear in court.

1866
Oyster Fisheries Act Prevented Maori from setting up Commercial Oyster Fisheries forcing most Maori Commercial fishing enterprises into bankruptcy.

1867
Maori Representation Act Four Maori seats established in Parliament. A response to Pakeha fears that Maori, who by this time had a majority under the property ownership qualification clause of the 1852 Constitution Act could gain a majority in Government.

1871
Government stipulation that English had to be taught in all schools. This almost led to the extinction of the Maori Language. Maori children were routinely punished for speaking Maori at school.

1877
The Bishop of Wellington v Wi Parata the infamous Prendergast decision. Judge Prendergast declares the Treaty to be a nullity believing Maori to be intellectually incapable of signing a Treaty. Another example of the Colonial arrogance that was rife at the time.

1879
Greys amendment makes it easier for small farmers to acquire Maori land.

1879
Peace Preservation Bill Maori were given 1 years hard labour for refusing to vacate their homes.

1880

1880
West Coast Settlements Act Taranaki Maori could be arrested without warrant and jailed for 2 years with hard labour for building anything or hindering the surveying of any property.

1881
Native Reserves Act The control of Maori reserve land taken by the Public Trustee.

1881
Parihaka The infamous invasion of Parihaka. 2500 troops attack the people of Parihaka and arrest the prophet Te Whiti.

1886
Native Lands Administration Act The government of the day rejects the traditional right of communal ownership forcing Maori land to be placed in the hands of trustees who had the right to sell.

1886
Te Whiti re-arrested under the West Coast Preservation Act and jailed for 3months without trial.

1887
Native Land Act Bastion Point appropriated for defence purposes.

1893
Native Land Purchase Act was passed to speed up the further purchase of Maori Land.

1894
Advances to Settlers Act. Low interest loans made available to settlers to buy land from the Government. Loans for development of land and farms were not available to Maori.

Validation of Invalid Land Claims Act. Any Pakeha misdealings concerning Maori Land were legitimised.

Maori Land Settlements Act
Maori land placed under the control of Land Councils on which there was no Maori representation. The white population had increased along with their desiref or land.

1897
92 Maori arrested and imprisoned for protesting against the Public Trustee control of their lands.

1903
Parliament reaffirms Judge Prendergasts ruling on the nullity of the Treaty.

1905
Native Councils abolished to speed up the Governments land grab process.

1905-1908
Three more years of amendments to the Native Land Act to force further sales of Maori land.

1908
Tohunga Suppression Act. Penalties imposed including the threat of jail for any Maori Tohunga who practiced Rongoa Maori or who taught Maori spirituality.

Maori Health Act made it illegal for Maori women to breastfeed their babies.
The whangai system of Maori adoption was outlawed to prevent Maori from adopting Pakeha children.

1918
Maori returned servicemen ineligible for the armed forces Rehabilitation Scheme. The scheme was only available to Pakeha.

1920
By 1920 the New Zealand Government had taken 62,000,000 acres of Maori land.

1953
Maori land not being occupied or used was declared waste land and taken by the Government.

Town and Country Planning Act prevented Maori from building on their land forcing many Maori into the cities.

1960
The Hunn Report Civil servant Jack Hunn recommends the speeding up of the assimilation process a process which by its very nature would have seen the end of Maori as a culture and as a race. The establishment of Kohanga Reo in the 1970s and the late remergence of Kurakaupapa Maori began the Maori Renaissance which subverted the assimilaton agenda.

1967
Maori Affairs Amendment Act gives the Maori Trustee the power to ask individuals to sell communal owned land to the Government. Land with fewer than 4 owners had to be put under 1 title.

1967
Ratings Act illegally made Maori customary land subject to rates.

1986
The introduction of the fisheries quota system breaches article 2 of the Treaty.

Remember incorporate. If you desire to see the return of this country to its rightful owners then you must incorporate, either as Hapu or simply as a Whanau Incorporation. In order for an Incorporation to have sovereign status it must be done in accordance with Te Ture Whenua Maori Maori Land Act 1993/1995To be put in contact with someone who can guide you through the process of establishing your Incorporation.15% shareholding collectively is required to establish a Hapu Incorporation.

  1. how can we be equal with the pakeha people when they don’t want to be told from the maori where and when it’s ok to be or to go in Aotearoa, the pakeha plan’s was to put us maori into slavery and claim our wealth from our land and to me they are not the king nor the Queen the government has taking illegal matter’s and greed into their own hand’s if it wasn’t for us maori they would’nt of been here today and the change can stiil happen if the pakeha system carries on with their none respect for us maori, they have put our tipuna or tupuna to death in the pass and they are still doing this today,let’s take action pakeha had it sweet for to long now let’s take back what’s belong to us plus more

  2. The Maori people gave to the Queen the pre-emptive right (or first right) to purchase lands before all others or the first right to refuse to the sale of any Maori land in Aotearoa NZ, however Maori have not done that to date and the Queen has not purchased one inch of soil in Aotearoa New Zealand

  3. Article 3 of the TOW gives the same right to the Maori people to hold something similar in equal measure to the Queen which of course is sovereignty.

    Therefore the purchase of any land in New Zealand has to be conducted with the Queen directly

    All other lands that are recorded in New Zealand that Mãori have sold to any individual person is an illegal sale Any Maori who has sold to a European/immigrant or any European/immigrant who has brought from a Maori it is not a legal sale In law the beneficiary cannot sign any document it is up to the Trustee and that Trustee is the Queen
    .

  4. so why if this is the case, that you ALL seem to take “the Crown” to court and continually ask for money ?

    • “You ALL” – great generalisation. Considering 99.9% of the land that Tangata Whenua lived on and created economic opportunities with was confiscated, it’s about trying to set right a century of past injustices. Take a Treaty class, seriously.

      • im wondering what percentage of Maori you are ? and also id suggest you look at your tribe(s) including the white side of your history too

      • I think you really should check your facts.
        To this day 800,000 acres of Maori land remains confiscated, which is around 3%.
        The rest was sold by some very greedy, very short sighted Maoris!

        • Yes there are alot of short sighted maori . Why because if you take tainui for example only received about 4.1% of what they were entitled to In settlement. And that is considered a win.

          • I’d be fascinated to learn by what calculation you came to the figure of 4.1%

            Tainui like all the other tribes sold the overwhelming majority of their land willingly and at the market rates of the period.

            Increasingly we are hearing from part Maoris the cry ‘land lost’ when they should be saying ‘land sold’

    • Because its a polite way of saying own up and take responsibility for your wrong doing. Yes I used the term your because you live, breath and drink our resources. Don’t like them give them back we never asked you to use them.

      • There is and only ever was one text and that is written in te reo maori.. a common mistakes perpetuated by misleading so call information. Te tiriti o Waitangi was drafted in English but not translated correctly intentionally. Why!? Because the rangatira would never give their tino rangatanga sovereignty to another. But they did give kawanatanga when translated from the Bible as reference to that time. Cesar was the rangatira and his general pontius pilot was kawana.

        • Yes all languages evolve, but none so rapidly and dramatically as te reo, or at least words such as kawanatanga, rangatiratanga and taonga by the pen of the part Maori revisionists. The purpose of the treaty in both of its drafts is absolutely clear. It is a cession of sovereignty, a guarantee to Maori of the rights and privileges of British citizenship and all the mistranslations and lies under the sun wont change that.

          • Regardless of how the language has evolved it is the intention at that time. The Waitangi tribunal has indeed reported that our tupuna did not give sovereignty. Which is what tangata whenua have said and continue to say.

          • The Waitangi Tribunal has no credibility whatsoever with the NZ public and the calls for its abolition are growing louder each year.
            It is a kangaroo court that panders to the ridiculous claims of part Maori agitators and has been one of the root causes of escalating racial tension since its inception. The Kohimarama Conference in 1860, where the terms of the Treaty and British sovereignty were ratified by Maori chiefs from around the country is the only proof we need there was no misunderstanding.

          • New Zealand is an illegitimate “kangaroo nation!” – a whitey colonial cesspit.

            Not my fault if you don’t know the history of Aotearoa.

  5. Busted at last and now we have the truthe it is written in the bible that no treaty was to be signed so if you are looking for excuses and someone to blame Government people each of you need look no further than the mirrors you look into each morning come clean and make things right for our grandchildren and their great grand babies you owe them that much. The chokes the chains and the rods of the oppressors are at last falling away from the oppressed All Glory and Praise to God.

  6. mr brooks is correct 100 percent tehanataua kira has a very serious problem with him self that will cause him illness

  7. If NZ became a republic and got rid of the English Queen the Maroi’s would NOT have a claim on the TREATY..
    I don’t actually see a problem, we all live in a beautiful country,even with the local govt. or any other we put in. Ya.
    I wonder how many had thought of this..

  8. whanau dont get caught up in the hating that comes up, those people are jus afraid off what they stand to loose, jus the way we all feel for our tupuna and what they went through, its jus the shoe on the other foot, those haters are jus a distraction, dont let them steal your mana they already stole the land, dont stoop to their level, we all know what we have to do, our tupuna are the owners of papatuanuku, they did their job, by giving us sovereignty now we as kaitiaki of our tupuna land jus have to finish what they started, i always believed that iwi are a government created entity, our hapu would never settle for money from thieving convicts who hide behind cruelty and deceit, we jus want our tupuna land back, we cant grow kumara in a pile of money, we cant feed our tamariki on gold plated coins, tau iwi your money is worth nothing in comparison to the suffering our people went through, jus be thankful that when things are right we dont do the same to you, your old people and your children, its not us maori that are the savages it was the british, we are greatful the english knew what those british criminals were like, but mr bishop and mr brooks the energy you use for you unguided hating misuse of your own language jus inspires me more to work harder so thank you for giving me your energy, hospitals, roads, footpaths pubs, air poluting factories, possums, rubbish dumps, sewage ponds, monthly bills, poverty, lets not forget the dole, houses to rent, police stations,battery farmed chickens, caged pigs, diabetes, alzheimers, parkinsons, tobacco, oh and my favourite a beehive full of lying rapists convicts, but most of all education, cos without that we flesh eating murderers would never have known how to undo everything your thieving, scurvy diseased riddled fore fathers did, NO REIRA, NGA MIHI NUI KIA KOUTOU NGA TANGATA WHENUA MAORI O AOTEAROA KIA WHAWHAI TONU MATOU AKE AKE!!!!!!!!!!!

        will be be protected?. can the Govt still come after our land.

  10. Some Maori are always complaining! When I say “Maori” I do not mean the genuine New Zealanders of Maori ancestry who just want to honestly work, raise decent well-educated children, and are not interested in the carry-on of the tribal elite. They make up the bulk of the Maori population, they are our relatives, friends and neighbours. They are fed up with the obvious greed.
    You all know that Maori welcomed the arrival of the colonists, it stopped the tribes from annhiliating and eating each other, it put a buffer between them. They cannot have been too bad. The Maori fathers let their daughters marry them! The young Maori men happily married a white girl. You are all descended from those people.
    Why have Ngai Tahu now received their FIFTH full and final settlement and are now receiving top-up payments of millions of dollars. So are Waikato-Tainui.
    When are the Taranaki tribe who brutally murdered the Moriori, going to compensate them? That should also be a treaty settlement to the Chatham Islanders from the Taranaki tribe who committed the atrocity, or perhaps they deny it happened!
    I have read “Twisting the Treaty” and if it was incorrect, Maori would be shouting it to the rooftops, but they can’t because it is all true. To show up the greed of the radicals who people the Maori Party, have any of you taken a look at the whopping demands of the unelected Auckland Maori Statutory Board. They demanded $295 million over 10 years to be paid for by the poor Auckland ratepayer. They wanted – hold your breath at this one – over $31 million for the life force of ancestral lands and waters. If you want “life force” as a consumable item, then you pay for it. Over $72 million for guardianship of sky sea and land. Over $9 million for the right to participate in the community. That, friends, is free – you just go and do it! Plus lots more demands to be paid for by those poor gits who inhabit the City of Sails. Luckily for the poor gits, that unscrupulous demand was denied and they were offered much less. However it shows how unrealistic and avaricious they are.
    You, every one of you, have almost as much, if not more European blood in your veins, please honour all your ancestors, they made you who you are today! Also remember, if your white ancestors took your Maori ancestors land, you benefitted from that, then you get a treaty settlement on top of that.
    As a teenager my best friend was a Maori girl. She was gorgeous! She still is! I wish the Maori of today were like the real genuine old Maori my parents knew who believed in mana and not money!. Today there is no mana! Only money!

  11. This long article forgets one important things. Maori chiefs BEGGED Queen Victoria to come and save them from extinction, either by tribal fighting or cannibalism. The only way she would reluctant;ly do so was by making NZ another British Colony. When they signed the Treaty the Chiefs agreed to this. New Zealand was a derelict land covered by ferns and Maori had eaten/or killed most of the creatures that flew or walked! The British built roads, hospitals, schools, houses, taught hygiene and brough their wealth of knowledge with them which they shared with the Maori. To-day the part-Maori population, often with an eggspoonful of Maori blood, have usccessfully eived billions of dollars worth of land, fisheries, foresteries etc. How greedy can you be? Maori are fortunate they were not colonised by the Fench who would have exterminated them.

    • Dear Mr Brooks,

      Are you of Maori Descent?.

      Its not the Maori who have pilfered Millons of dollars,
      I think you need to re read the written statment that Queen Elizabeth made and then you might have a better understanding of why I am so angry with the Governement.

    • Mr Brooks, In response to YOUR OPINION,regarding YOUR ARTICLE,on Maori Chiefs whom supposedly had BEGGED QUEEN VICTORIA TO SAVE THEM, YOUR OPINION IS INCORRECT,OK. It was not Queen Victoria who intervened,It was her Father,The Duke of Kent,and after he passed,his brother King William IV,of England,UK, whom wrote the DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE OF NZ,28 OCTOBER 1835 IS AN INTERNATIONAL DECLARATION,FOR THE PROTECTION FOR MAORI,NOT EUROPEANS,after his death,At the age of 18 yrs old,She was then,CROWNED,OUR MOST GRACIOUS SOVEREIGN LADY HER ROYAL MAJESTY QUEEN VICTORIA,Whom gave us,THE MAORI REAL ESTATE MANAGEMENT ACT/S 1862 to restrain her SUBJECTS [EUROPEANS] not the NATIVES OF NZ,As for Cannibalism,IT’S GOTHIC,Created in MEDIEVAL TIMES.p.s,ANY FLESH CONSUMED AS A POINT OF INTEREST IS RECOGNIZED GLOBALLY AS CANNIBALISM.NOT Maori,we have “hangi”.James Cook and his invitees ate Boiled up pigs and potatoes with cabbage soaked in brine.[REPULSIVE],SO JUDGE NOT,WHAT NOT!!!OR YE BE JUDGED!!Do you know that your Queen Elizabeth reigns BUT does NOT RULE, AS you all think,She lives in,NOT HER CASTLE,SHE STOLE IT OF QUEEN VICTORIA.QUEEN VICTORIA IS COMMON LORE/LAW OF THE UNITED KINGDOM,YOUR QUEEN ELIZABETH II IS STATUTORY LAW,MADE FOR UNCONTROLLABLE,MISCHIEF,HOMELESS,ILLEGAL TENANTS KNOWN AS “SUBJECTS”[EUROPEANS],as for the “Parliament”,it NOT the GOVERNMENT OF “NZ”

  12. i truely beleive in our rights as tangata whenua at this point in my life i want to follow a parth thats positive one thats true and one that will set us all free

    • Thankyou

      I love the tangatahenua.com website. Wow what exciting news about Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth.
      I believe my hapu (NGATIWAI AOTEA) has been misled by a rouge hapu
      (Ngati Rehua) and i fear that my hapu will be lost forever.

      In 2014 this rouge hapu stands to gain millons for obtaining the required 13 hapus.

      Our hapu is the last one they needed.

      My father started an incorporation in the 1980s to secure our block. When he died in the mid 1990s my brother inlaw had the incorporation dissolved so that he could try

      To Europeanise his block.

      He took it to court and although the judge ruled that it must stay in Maori land the incorporation was dissolved.

      I believe that the Crown has moved this rogue hapu in to take over our block.

      I now wish to form a Maori incorporation so we can keeep our whakapapa name and have one voice.

      Please help me to achieve this and then we can help other hapus who have suffered the same fate.

      Warm Regards
      Elizabeth Bayne

      to Europeanise his block

      He tool it to court and although the judge ruled that it must stay in Maori land the incorporation was dissolved.
      I levieve that the Crown has moved this rogue hapu in to take over our block.

      I now wish to form a new Incorporation sowe can keep our whakapapa name and have on voice

    • Dear Kira,
      If Maori don’t make a stand now. and get rid of parliamental policies, and have one voice, All Maori will end up loosing their land’s
      and the Treaty of Waitangi will cease to exist. The Queen has make this possible for the Maori to be a strong race at her reins.
