Moana Jackson to Speak at HB Futures Seminar

1 min read

Returning home to Hawkes Bay is Moana Jackson, who will be speaking at Hawkes Bay Regional Councils Embracing Futures Thinking breakfast seminar on Thursday 3 December. Moana Jackson is of Ngati Kahangunu and Ngati Porou descent.

He is a lawyer specialising in Treaty of Waitangi and constitutional issues and is currently the Director of Nga Kaiwhakamarama i Nga Ture (the Maori Legal Service) which he co-founded in 1987.

Mr Jackson has long been at the forefront of Treaty discussions nationally and has also had an international role in indigenous issues and the formation of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. As part of the speaker series, Hon Justice Joe Williams was the speaker in May on Treaty settlements and their implications for governance in the region. Mr Jacksons talk will further develop this theme and aim to encourage ongoing discussions around this very topical issue.

People who would like to attend this breakfast seminar (starting at 7am on Thursday 3 December) can contact Hawkes Bay Regional Council on 06 833 8075 or email [email protected]

  1. Kia Ora Moana Jackson,
    I have a sensitive issue our whanau are currently dealing with in regards to an incident that occurred in 2011 at Omahu. I reside in CCH and have made contact with Canlaw Kim Rigby who referred me to make contact with you.
    I look forward to any response.

  2. Hello

    re: Moana Jackson

    I would love to find Moana Jackson's email address. How can I find it? I am from Ngati Porou and Ngati Kahungunu and am a direct descendent of Enoka Potae te Aute who was a signatory of the Treaty.

    I have some information which he might find extremely valuable in assisting with issues surrounding the Treaty of Waitangi.

    Yours sincerely,

    Raymond Hope
