The Maori king’s Charter

As we promised a few weeks back, the Maori king’s charter is posted online for your viewing and evaluation.

A word of warning, the fake-rhetoric document reeks and stinks of hypocrisy and may be hazardous to your moral well-being.

Many thanks to “the Barbarian” for loaning us the original copy.

    Sounds like he is empire building his fake pakeha kingdom on the blood of our ancestors who died in the Raupatu.

      The king and his lackeys put out plenty of rhetoric, but his actions speak far louder than his words. Its all about the money, honey.

    Last week Councillor Ewan Wilson opposed TGHs plans for a 24 hr transport hub this week in the same paper he’s been forced to write a retraction statement in Waikato Times (15/04/13) WHY because of the lack of water in the river and high unemployment in the Waikato, (kings domain) in particular the high numbers of non-working Tainui whanau who want a job.

    TGH must adhere to the first Rights of Acceptance principle written in the Deed of Settlement and the kingitanga accord – as for this latest charter…. aue!

    In plain English folks it means – all jobs in the new-build transport hub and future business will go to all Tainui descendants who can whakapapa to Tainui; no queue-lines just send your CVs into TGH’s HR.

    It is not the kings domain. It belongs to Pare Waikato Hapu. Get it right! The King did not sign the Treaty of Waitangi. But 28 Waikato Chiefs did. What you are stating Ngawai is misleading because the Council, TGH and The Kingitanga have planned this development for a while. They work hand in hand as they are all Crown lackies. History tells us that they will just give jobs to the cheapest labour cost, which means low paid foriegn immigrants that have been contracted by some outsourced company. The Kingitanga is a corporation and not a tribe, and tribal membership is through the purchasing of shares and not whakapapa.
    We can see that with Taharoa C where some shareholders are not from whakapapa but through purchasing shares.

      Our writing requires historical – factual structuring when we discuss important issues affecting us all, here’s some guidelines I use when producing statements we can read and understand.

      Understanding who the raupatu hapu were historically?

      Understanding who the raupatu hapu are today and where their locale sits within our rohe?

      Quoting our historical sources better – Waikato-Tainui comprises 64000 tribal members so far, “33 raupatu hapu and 68 Marae”….

      Reading and understanding the Waikato-Tainui Raupatu Claims Waikato River Settlement Act 2010, the Deed of Settlement 1995 and associated Statutes etc. They’re my navigational tools when discussing this subject matter.

      What’s happening today has a direct correlation between the ill-health (mauri) of the Waikato River and the ill-health (mauri) of our Waikato Tainui people. To understand this statement you must read the documents quoted.

      Use the above information as your compass when you re-read the Crown (kings) charter! It doesn’t measure up, it doesn’t state time-lines and target dates or key performance measures of when- where-how- things will be done or completed by?

      There are no historical reference points (documents) that link the charter back to anything ..refer above!

      The key sources of information and enablers which should substantiate the charters validity is missing!

      There’s a lot of selective omissions!!!

      Reading the history surrounding the Declaration of Independence, you’ll then understand how Aotearoa became a sovereign state under international law.

      Reading the history surrounding the Treaty of Waitangi, you’ll then understand how the public transference of ownership occured in the horse trading deals between Aotearoa (Maori) to mainstream NZ. We got raw end of it.

      Read recent political statements issued by some politically aware HCC Councillors who made damaging remarks about TGH in the Waikato Times?

      HCC were forced to write a retraction!

      To that end – CE Mike Pohio’s made statements on the inland port, summed up – WE’RE GOING FORWARD – awesome.

      I expect to see changes in print when a mark II version of the Crowns (kings) charter is released- wait for it… whose the head and whose the tail…

    Lets face it ngawai the Waikato Tainui Settlement says only the descendents of Potatau not everyoneelse. Potatau was not the chief of many of the raupatu hapu of the time. There were 28 Waikato chiefs that signed. Potatau was only a spokesperson when he signed The Declaration he did not have tino rangatiratanga or mana over the other hapu. Every other hapu had their own chief. The inland port was always going ahead because the TGH is a corporate, with partnerships with the council corporate, it is in the interest of other corporates. The Kingitanga is in breach of the Declaration of Independence because it is a completely different political system to our constitution.

    And undermines hapu tino rangatiratanga. Hence a reason why Tania Martin was successful.

    A message for the anon. com writers from planet nonsense….

    For the past 12 years “CE Mike Pohio” has battled HCC who have proven they are anti-TGH anti-business development. HCC incumbents – Cr Wilson, Cr Macpherson, and Mayor Hardaker know how to push the ethnic-race boundaries for political gain.

    HCC’s think big policies (Muldoonism) require continuous ratepayer funded bailouts for financial disasters; Claudelands Events centre; V8 debacle; Hotel investments; Hamilton city airport – Kiwi air lousy business case- Cr Wilson.

    HCC, Ruakura residents and other uninformed people are on a public witch hunt to defame Tainui Group Holdings for agreements of 2012 which were subject of a High court challenge.

    TGH won the battle, now history is repeated in 2013 all because TGH want to increase Waikato’s economic wellbeing to a staggering $$$4.4 BILLION GDP. In the meanwhile NZ is downgraded in Standard and Poors’ AA+ to a dismal A-.

    It’s a comedy of errors when Ruakura residents blame TGH for what is essentially a HCC district annual planning exercise. My advice to those residents, have your Auckland lawyers put in a Treaty claim to HCC for $30 milllion. Tell me… Who’s the head and who’s the tail Councillors?
