    Maori News is our Daily Commitment

    It is a beautiful day here in Rotorua, as our daughter Hiona plays under the hose with her cousin Te Aroha, a cicada singing proudly in the background. For our little whanau, 2012 transitioned smoothly into 2013. It was awesome to know that we had mahi over the christmas break and that we would ...

    How safe is your whakapapa?

    A few years ago, I was talking to my Koro Rangiora ‘Dutch’ Rakuraku about the mahi we did here at TangataWhenua.com and the issue of whakapapa came up. We talked about how necessary it was to get more positive Maori news out to the people, to keep everyone informed and involved.  He said we had [...]

    Hori 3.0: They said WHAT about Waitangi…??

    Morena! Morena!! It has been fantastic being home.  Rotorua, for all its smell and rain, has been very hot and muggy.  We spent over 2 months with whanau, first in the Gold Coast and then in California, learning a little more about each other.  Our children had a great time with their Opa and ...

    Hori 3.0: Te Waahi o Tangaroa

    Morena! Morena! Now I know that all the talk has been about how beautiful the ocean is when the sun is shining and how too many dodgy dudes are stealing (others politely call it poaching) more paua than you can cream but after reading about the cat and mouse game being played by Green Peace [...]
