the Maurea Poukai

It will be a very interesting day at Maurea Marae!

It seems apparent that the Maurea Poukai on Feb 26 looks set to become a modern maori battleground of sorts… with the maori king astounded by the unwillingness of his disloyal peasants to toe the line… and having already boycotted Hukanui Marae they are rallying the executive troops together… ready to dish up the dirt on Te Kauhanganui chairwoman Tania Martin… because the Tainui parliament meets the following day on the 27th…

Whats at stake? Millions & Millions…

Whats in the way? An uncooperative Tainui tribal parliament… a financial review of Tainui executive spending… governance review… transparency… accountability…

[The boycotters of the Hukanui Poukai are getting ready to make their grand show at Maurea.]

    This is really interesting. The poukai supposed to be for the poor widowed and orphaned. Is this the new kaupapa and direction? .

      Kia Ora Tainui Bull,
      I realise that your comment was made on the 1st of March but just wanted to share my thoughts.
      I can hear the anger in your statements and I’m quite sure that it is valid, but my question is this do we as a people with a strong history take away something that has a good purpose and let it be destroyed by the ignorance, untruthful, money grabbing few or do you treat the scab and get rid of it, so that those who have a willing and a faith in what has been set down from our Tupuna.
      Like Taniwha Rebel make those changes for the right of the many not the few.
      There are pirau paku in the group and as much as we may wish that this will not happen again, you know it will. Hopefully at least it can be dealt with and not left to fester.
      Poukai “good” if focused on why it is in place (not for profit) to assist.
      Kingitanga hmmmmmm now love the concept but I’m afraid like Alice n wonderland off with his head and down with his conscriptors banish them to the back seats never to be heard of again.
      Kingitanga “good” it’s having the right person/people that are there for what I can hear you say “Let me hear it hallelujah” yes it’s for the good of the people not oneself. Let me hear a “Yeahhhhhhh!!!
      Ka mutu te korero

    Kia Ora Taniwha Rebel,
    In regards to the Poukai, you say you are young and bored, and that there needs to be change in the way it is conducted. Don’t you think this would be a good platform for you and others who think and talk amonst yourselves but stand back and do nothing.
    The very accusation/protest you are making in my opinion and thats all it is,is a very vauled statement but until someone steps up and takes on that challenge nothing will ever differ. Once again this is just my opinion and I don’t mind if you shoot me down “Yes” there is protocol, tradition, and our culture, but as Maori we tend to pick and chose when these things are used and it’s importance and it tends to be when on show as example the expression out there in the ethos is dial a kaumaatua “shame”. I’m what they call a baby boomer child, most of our grandparents were villiage/Paa people, our parents semi villiage/urban so there is no excuse for change if we want to succeed we need to step a side and at least listen, but the trouble with some of us of the older generasation we don’t always like change. So my last comment to you will be stand up and be accounted “ki te waha/speak.
    Kaaore e kume roatia te koorero.
