Fourteen dollars eighty-five

64,000 members of this tribe keep getting told by the ‘elites’ that they are rich. The tribe keeps getting told that there is a huge treasure pot of gold worth nearly a billion dollars – and that you own it all. Rich, rich, rich! Happy, happy, joy! Yippee!

Apart from one member of this tribe $14.85 is all you guys are worth. 63,999 tribal members divided by $950,000 worth of grants amounts to fourteen bucks eighty five. That’s enough for one big mouth or a couple of small mouths to have a meal at McDonalds.

That leaves one more. In the meantime one particular beneficiary takes home $1.4 million all by himself to support his dodgy ‘charitable trust’, his gambling, his luxuries, and his booze and cigarettes.

Who has the beneficiary mentality? There’s only one person who gets the gold in this tribe, and it certainly aint you!

    What utter rubbish! I notice you neglect to mention that the $950,000 given out in education grants was divided between just 600 tribal members who could be bothered to get off their asses and get themselves an education. That equates to an average of $1600 for each tribal member who applied for a grant. Not bad I would have thought. The real issue is that out of 63,999 tribal members less than 10 per cent applied for an education grant. And its typical that in your comparison what do you suggest that the people could do with their $14.85? Go buy fast food! You are a complete moron!!
    And what about the million dollars given to Marae each year? What about the half million that goes to kaumaatua in health grants? What about sports grants, maatauranga grants and the Tainui Games? You don’t mention that $75,000 it costs to hold each Te Kauhanganui meeting – where they have not managed to actually get through a complete agenda for the past three years, they just hold another meeting for another $75,000! What about the $65,000 paid to the Chair of Te Arataura – for one meeting a month! What about the $55,000 paid to the Deputy Chair + the $65,000 he also gets from TGH.for sitting on that board doing nothing…
    And given your position on Te Arataura you must be fully aware that the Office of the King receives $1.4m – the King himself receives only a small portion of that. Stop the bullshit and stop encouraging people who do nothing except bitch and moan that they are entitled to anything. You get nothing for doing nothing.

      Ha the assets and benefits are held in trust for ALL members of the tribe and so the 64,000 number we are quoting is correct.

      What we are saying is that the ordinary Joe Blow members of the tribe will receive absolutely nothing from the tribe and we are correct on that point.

      We also point out that time after time that the Maori king and his croanies are grabbing millions of the tribal dollars while the rest miss out.

      We are right by saying that the system is rigged so that a privileged few reaps the benefits while the rest get nothing.

    your still wrong.. you only stated the 950,000 that is only for the education grants.. Nothing else, If you knew anything, you would know that sports grants are availiable to all members of the tribe doing sports, The Kaumatua grants are a monthly thing, Marae dividens , and All the poukai gratns, Kapa Haka gratns ect…

    How about you write something usefull instead of spreading false facts …

    Your statements are designed to reward the work of those in power rather than to alleviate the poverty our people face on a day to day basis.

    Your discriminating tone suggests you don’t like our non-working (poor) whanau- an inconveniant group of complainers?

    By the way the Settlement Agreement was never about impoverishing our 33 raupatu hapu it was about improving the outcomes of everyone who can whakapapa to these hapu.

    We want the right to a reasonable life as tangata whenua your duty as a member of TKI/TAA includes ensuring the wellbeing of our people living within our rohe your duty includes job creation for our non-working whanau, your duty includes monitoring the health of our people to ensure their outcomes improve to a point where we can measure our health fully resourced, so we can make informed
    choices leading to informed SOLUTIONS you were NOT recruited by your marae denigrate us!

    Lets assert the 1st Maori Queen for New Zealand. She will hold a set of scales to Judge Te Riti o Waitangi which her Te Arawa ancestors never signed.
    Queen Victoria’s treaty led to Queen Elizabeths 3 Crown corthouses:
    1. Common courthouses including the Maori land court of FALSE RECORDS
    2. Borough City council chamber courthouses
    3. Beehive pyramid model courthouse
    Through this CORRUPT CROWN legialstion, polciices, bills & amendments of manipulation they have JAILED Maori & striped them of their authority & lands. Courthouses of which Judges & Lawyers/Policitians have ALL RIGHTS TO SPEAK, and we have LOST OUR RIGHTS TO SPEAK in their houses. For further info go to YOUTUBE: The Pattern Reader – Series 1,2,3,4

    @patupaiarehe. You delusional crook. I have seen the info you idiot. It is all going out one day at a time. Bring in the serious fraud office and watch them clean out Huntly and make a straight line to Tuku Morgan’s house. The sooner they’re all behind bars the better for the people. As for the king of Huntly he should listen to what every other iwi is saying, they hate him, and they are laughing at him. His mother didn’t want him to take her place. She warned all iwi and no one listened. Now we all know why she didn’t want her own son. The kingitanga will not survive the stupid king of Huntly. Him and all the crroks in his office and in Huntly deserve each other. There will be more people saying this because the information is getting out slowly but surely. Thank you to those people who are getting out the truth and thank you too eraka.blog. I am fighting with you now when before I was against everything this blog stood for.
