He aha te hau e wawa rā, e wawa rā?
He tiu, he raki, he tiu, he raki,
Nāna i ā mai te pūpūtara ki uta.
E tīkina e au te kōtiu
Ko ia te pou whakairo ka tū ki Waitematā
Ka tū ki Waitematā i oku wairangitanga
E tū nei, e tū nei
Tihei mauri ora!
E anga whakamua ana te waka (Forging a new path)
Ko tō mātou Kāhui Ture Māori, ko Te Waka Ture, he mātanga ki te tuku tohutohu arumoni ā-ture ki ngā iwi, ki ngā hapū, ki ngā kaipupuri whenua Māori, ki ngā pakihi Māori, ki te hunga anō e whai ana ki te mahi tahi ki tēnei momo, ā, e aro pū ana ki:
E tere tupu ana te ōhanga Māori i te huanga mai o ētahi rangatōpū Māori nui, whai rawa nui hoki, nā runga i ngā whakataunga Tiriti o Waitangi, nā runga hoki i ngā rangapū me ngā hinonga hourua i waenga i te Māori me ngā hoa Tauiwi.
Mā te tō mai i ō mātou pūkenga me ō mātou wheako, ka taea e tō mātou kāhui rōia matua e aro pū ana ki ngā iwi, te āwhina i ngā iwi me ngā whakahaere Māori kia whakawhānuihia ai ā rātou rawa arumoni, mā konei e āwhinatia ai rātou ki te whakatutuki, kaua noa i ō rātou whāinga arumoni, engari ō rātou whāinga ā-pāpori, ā-ahurea anō hoki.
Ētahi tino wheako
Ētahi kua tohutohungia e mātou:
- ICP, a consortium of 12
iwi, on the establishment of limited partnership joint ventures for the
aggregation of fishing ACE. The ICP are recognised as a significant
commercial player in the New Zealand fishing industry
ki Waitotara Incorporation, Ngāti Mutunga o Wharekauri Asset Holding
Company and certain members of the ICP, on the establishment of limited
partnership joint ventures for the purposes of acquiring and operating a
lobster fishing and processing business
- Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei in
relation to the development and implementation of its post-settlement
structure, which we believe will be the benchmark for post-settlement
structures going forward. We are also advising Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei
Trust on its participation in the Tamaki Collective Treaty settlement
Runanganui o Ngāti Porou on its obligations as landowner of forestry
blocks which are subject to Crown forestry licences and were returned to
Ngāti Porou as part of its Treaty settlement. We have also provided
similar advice to Ngāti Whatua o Kaipara in relation to forest land
acquired as part of its recent Treaty settlement, and
Te Kauhanganui Incorporated on a range of governance issues including
its current governance review process and the rewrite of its rules.
