    You may want to take a paper in law. It will help you better mature into adult world. A tip, you don’t have the acumen to support your marketing and management career. This blogg won’t improve your characteristics, it will stick with you like mud. Red neck is another name for it. Better still, dog eat dog.

    You Know, This is the trouble with some of our Tainui whanau. They can’t see things for what they are. OPEN YOUR EYES!!! Lord forbid that we endeavour to have an opinion about our tribal affairs. There are many of us Tainui beneficiaries that are educated, (Well educated I might add) and have bent over backwards to support our marae, hapu and iwi. What’s happening in the tribe, stinks! and Tuku and the board are responsible. As far as I can see, some of the adults are not doing much to protect our putea for our mokopuna. If this behaviour of frivolous spending is condoned, we’ll have nothing left for them.

    Tautoko…… its most unfortunate that MB cannot a maintain an intelligent argument without resorting to assumptive conjecture. We don’t need more lawyers, we need honest, intelligent iwi representatives capable of growing and managing our resources in a manner that is transparent and within the rules so that accountability back to the iwi remains intact…….and so that our mokopuna can indeed benefit.

      Funny that, your comments seem to be the only negative one that came out of the hundreds that were there…..One wonders where your brain is at!

      I wouldn’t bother responding however there are always 2 sides to the coin.

      The Motu praised our roopu for the diversity of our programmes that were integral to the whole kaupapa.

      Did you see the quality presentations that our group presented on Kakahu Tawhito o Waikato and related marae profiles on Friday at Pipitea Marae?

      Did you see OUR quality performance on Saturday upholding the Tikanga that Waikato is reputed for?

      We upheld the wairua, the mana and mauri of Tainui, suffice to say “Kid” you lack the mauri and quality in your whinging.

      Were you privvy to the ShowTime extravaganza themed “Happy Feet” a series of dances from 1920s -present followed by a quality 5 scene act on the the impact of “Say Kao to P!”

      Did you hear what MPs had to say about the quality of that production ” Say Kao to P! and the initiative under taken by our roopu to continue to take the message of an A Class Drug that is killing our people of Tainui waka and the community at large?

      What are YOU doing about this killer, OR are you a User too?

      Did you see other groups do the same “outrageous” performances like we did and enjoyed themselves in doing so?

      You have been in the “Crowd” for 5yrs…doing what? Not good enough to make the cut OR did you get rejected from the Nat kapa Haka roopu of YOUR region?

      One wonders WHY you weren’t asked to do so……………Funny that the people who had a lot to offer were on stage and not on the floor like you.

      Did you see our roopu stay behind and clean up YOUR rubbish that YOU left behind in the museum?

      And you say that you are ashamed to belong to the waka or did you mean Iwi?..

      Did you see our Waikato whanau rangatahi try to usurp our roopu Kaumatua and their behaviour at the Matariki festival?

      Hence WHY the kaupapa is about Kaumatua…duh?

      Did you see anything that might register in your lame brain that OUR roopu may have contributed to the kaupapa and resurrected Waikato from the “Living Dead”?

      Who are you talking about swearing in public?…It must be YOUR own rellies or crowd Kaare?

      ONE THING IS CLEAR….is that you do NOT have the BALLS to come out in the open and be transparent, hiding behind a fictious name says it all.

      You may want to change your name to “NO BALLS!” Oranga doesn’t suit your nature. Takes guts to actually be who you really are…Enjoy your life or get one!

      I don’t need to hide behind any other name….

      Oooh….by the way ” No Balls” ….we had a ball there too!

      Good sound advice. YOU should start by being a proud Tainui person by coming back to your marae and cleaning the sh_thouse then work you way up to top level Kaumatua…if YOU qualify for the role.

      Look forward to seeing YOU again next year, same place. perhaps.

        So immature to call people no balls
        and He oranga is right about you and what you do to those kaumatua of Tainui
        i am from Kahungunu and living in wellington and for the last four years you have been treating the kaumatua in your roopu like kid’s and belittling the kaumatua of Tainui. It was about time that we saw something decent from Tainui with the other roopu from Tainui. I congratulate that roopu 100% they would have done Tainui Proud.

    Same could be said of a certain individual heard swearing hardout at a kaumatua recently as witnessed by several non-Tainui members, they were shocked & disgusted by the incident…….and I’m not talking about the incident in November 2010. No one, absolutely no one deserves to be treated like that, regardless of the circumstances…bullying & abuse is wrong!!!

      I have heard from whanau that has a nanny or a koro in the (at that time 2010) Tainui Roopu that their loved one was verbally abused, by a certain person. How could people let their kaumatua or kuia be belittled, ridiculed and abused like this, what is wrong with you all.

    To Marise Bishop. Hope that’s not your surname because it’s mine and I’d hate to think we have a person in our whakapapa that supports that crook morgan and those other crooks. Get it in your head man. Tania martin gave the truth and backed it up with the facts. As for you He Oranga, I agree with moko puna, go back under that rock man and yes, you;re a bloody sad human when you can pick on kaumatua. Love to meet you on a street you kaumatua basher. Shame on you.

    Kia ora
    In regards to the korero from He Oranga, Tena koe
    You are so right about the kaumatua of Tainui being embarrassed like that
    i thought that it wasn’t fair that the kaumatua were been treated like that.

    The Penguins and Halo’s were just a laughing stock for us as audiences, those kaumatua should speak up and say something to her. Obviously Mamae you don’t understand what kapa haka is. Kapahaka is what Ngati Kahungunu Display what Te Arawa and Waikato Taniwharau display, but your idea of Kapahaka is Penguin dancing and Halo wearing. STUPID….

    What? Are we resorting to bashing up our koroheke now. Come on Tainui this is not the issue. Our Koroheke have earned the right to choose what they do, they are not incapable of choosing where they go or what the choose to partake in.

    Poor form whanau, sad attempt to change change the focus. Tuku and his croanies
