    I do hope they find a collective solution going forward that also encapsulates the views of our Tauiwi friends, but ensconces profoundly the Maori worldview in a contemporary context - we can go on forever saying 'he taonga te wai, he tupuna - however, there are some iwi saying commodity can fit??? Kioa kaha tatou

    Tena koutou, there are a number of us Pakeha who support Tino Rangatiratanga and would love to attend the hui tomorrow and observe in solidarity with Maori. If anyone who is organising the hui could comment on this it would be much appreciated. We are very happy for iwi to make the decisions here, and we'll respect the wisdom of the kaumatua and kuia concerned.
