    The Maori Neo-Liberalists Society bring you all the news from THEIR point of view about Tainui, including the most fascinating stories relating to the dirty politics as YOU say are going on at Tainui.

    The constant backstabbing, bitterness, greed, and infighting will ensure that there is plenty of material to go on this site, and thats lovely! For whom? For notoriety for yourselves …OBVIOUSLY.

    If you can’t HELP find solutions…then why put this site in place??? To degrade ALL who are ultimately affected by it….us Tainui….talk about doing being John Keys lap dog….pit ourselves against each other and the tauiwi have no need to get in on the mess…we doing a good job ourselves!!!

      something to ponder frm my readings and site i’m on as i am not the author…;

      If you took out all the people at the top who are engaged in global hegemonic rule, it would simply be a matter of time before another group stepped in to seek the same ambition. Therefore, it isn’t the individual people or groups that are the problem. It is actually the conditions upon which those people have been accustomed and indoctrinated by. Of course, many argue against this view with the escapist notion that it is “human nature” that causes this competition and need for dominance. This is unsupported by the facts. In reality, we are nearly clean slates when we are born and it is our environment that shapes who we are and how we behave.

      Kia Ora April Taylor,
      I agree with you comments, a good example of this is the Middle Eastern situation.
      Just because the past leaders or dictatorship ended did it purge their mind-set, of cause not it just let new pus replace what has been going on for centuries.

    I think Eraka’s blog is not here to tell you what to believe. It may appear challenging to replace a system of distorted values which she is pumping up the volume but it must be started somehow. Any single person can do their part in shaping this vision. Eraka’s blog will provide you with materials to an open mind its up to you what you take in. No human being can understand everything completely.

    Actually this site was set up by individuals who were disgusted by the lies spread in the media by the Maori king’s press releases and media releases sent out by Te Arataura, that we decided to to do something about it.

    Everybody is free to make up their own minds.

      Kia Ora,
      I’m just a newby on this sight I didn’t know it existed, so here goes I am willing to take a slap on the hand, but I believe I have the right to express my thoughts and feelings like any one else.
      Nothing has changed in regaurds to the lemming mentality that seems to be the prodigy of the past and the present and until we the Iwi, hapu, whanau stop repeating the same failures nothing changes.
      It is the people, that make the decision of endorsing, and supporting as an example “Tuku” and other like him. In Tuku’s case he had already shown the people and I’m not just pointing at Maori his track record and yes some can make excuses for them and sweep it under the carpet, but I won’t and never will “Wrong is wrong”. These so called honest people are put there to help us the people not just themselves.
      ” MAORI’S WORST ENERMY IS THEIR OWN” not always Pakeha and the like.
      And it is for that reason we will always be the so called improverished and uneducated.

    No where in all these comments do I read where the crux of the whole problem lies. I LAY THIS AT THE FEET OF OUR KING.. His actions are dividing nga IwI o Waikato/Maniapoto
    The ‘greatest shame’ is his disrespect for ‘te torona tapu o tana tupuna’.
    NGA IWI O WAIKATO/MANIAPOTO there are many broken pieces, we must gather and nuture them and restore the the maana of our KINGITANGA.

    Revolt brewing against Maori King

    Revolt brewing against Maori King (Source: Getty)
    King Tuheitia – Source: Getty

    Discussions to replace the Maori King have ramped up after he announced he wanted to take over Tainui’s tribal parliament.

    King Tuheitia, also the paramount chief of Waikato-Tainui, told a meeting at Horahora marae, near Rangiriri, on New Year’s Day he wanted to take control of the tribe’s parliament, Te Kauhanganui, and its executive, Te Arataura. He warned Tainui marae not to attend the next meeting of the tribal parliament, scheduled for February 26.

    Interesting website I like it. Tuku the man aye well that boy needs to go and get a real job. As for the king taking control of parliament first he needs to control what comes out of his mouth. I think it is time all the posers, thieves and wanabes were given the arse and put people in there with no hidden agendas. Too much kakabulli bro!

    The king needs to take control of his own whanau before wanting to control the iwi.
    He has all his kids living the good life but when it comes to the real mahi they are no-where to be found. They want all the perks but they can’t give anything in return.
    i have a question what has the maori king done thus far that has benefit maori ? F all.

      Hi Aaron,

      It’s very hard to keep secrets within the tribe. In fact we are holding back from publishing information which if revealed would come across as so outrageous that it would probably be unbelievable. Being stories about married-drug-taking-closet-homosexuals within the ranks of the Tainui leadership. Old news as far as the gay community is concerned but would definitely rock the socks off us straighties!

  25. jere
    Feb 24, 2012 @ 14:27:42

    everyone is thinking it, but who has the gumption to say it, the king is buying up as many assets as he can and spending as much as he can before he is kicked out, because there are many in the know that he has been stealing, and TAKING IT OFFSHORE yes thats right people, offshore, and using his bully boys, intimidating tactics to stop the lid coming off the hideous extent of his corruption, he has been using YOUR money to fill his pockets and his own. …WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT, it takes courage to make a change, create your own destiny, stop walking on eggshells, THE TIME IS NOW. stop allowing him to make fools of us….

      Wheres offshore bro, Stewart Island? Look the King of Huntly would not have the brains to move his money offshore if he had any, he would probably not trust anyone else to open an account for him unless it was a casino account.

      I make the point that publishing potentially slanderous statements about people without proof is asking for trouble. If this web site does have proof then publish it and see where the cards fall. Tainui as a brand is being trashed and the nepotism,cronyism and sticky fingerism at the top has to stop.

      A fish rots from the head down and Tainui is imploding because there are no ethics and no rules that “actually work”. The factions over the years have proven how dumb they are because the constant infighting and bickering never ends.
      It is not their private piggybank to use as they please. All the law suits, amazing!

      It would appear to me watching from the sidelines that you have several camps
      of uneducated fucken idiots trying to take control of the one area that does make money for the tribe so they can loot that as well. Now if I am wrong then I apologise in advance but I do not think I am.

      It doesn’t go king high as his vices are money (other peoples money), gambling, and booze. His offsider Whakaruru’s leisure time activies are well known. We’re talking about Tainui executive level. If you have any gay friends, go ask them! If you were wondering, we aren’t discriminating against gay people. Some Tainui executives would prefer that their double lives were kept away from the spotlight.

    Why should we believe anything that you say e hoa, You come across as a Pessimist, and Pessimist can’t be satisfied even if one tried, You confront the issues with negatively and that makes it hard for others to form their own opinions if you laid out the facts and allowed other people to form their own opinions then if the blog then turned into a run down fest then so be it. But Negativity begets more Negativity and this is haven for it. You could have done better than to show your Negative views to the world and shame my people. You think you’re hard done by, My people have your negative garbage as a negative stereotype they have to deal with Now let all the pakeha in the country laugh at us because of your negative thoughts, Ka kai koe i te whakamaa.

    The constant backstabbing, bitterness, greed, and infighting will ensure that there is plenty of material to go on this site, and thats lovely!,Stoner Mahuta,fascinating stories relating to the dirty politics going on at Tainui.,but why anyone would want a dopehead as their chairperson is anybody’s guess. The madness never ceases.Patsy Mclean needs to be thrown out to the trash heap with her friend Tuku. The crook is broke?,thieving scum,Two faced Rahui Papa is a Te Kauhanganui member, Those are just some of the things that you say, So wonder why my family has turned away from Tainui and it’s dealings and I don’t blame them, I have never been interested in Tainui politic’s but just as well because you’re showing that we a thieves and criminals. I hope like hell my mates never see this because I’ve done better as a Tainui descendant than to portrayed like this. and this is what people think you’re doing.

      We feel that we need to shine a light on the negative deeds perpetrated by crooked executives and dumb ass leaders. See that Tuku’s track record speaks for itself! And the ordinary people of the tribe miss out to the tune of millions! What did the tribe get back after throwing millions of dollars at ‘certain individuals’.

      Go ahead and bury your own head in the sand because we won’t. We feel that we must confront our problems head on. The problem is, will we ever learn the lessons or are we doomed to repeat them?

      By the way, why are you so concerned about what pakeha think? Have you got some sort of complex or something?

        Okay how do we fix the problems then.Its one thing to kick a dog while it is down but if you want to make a difference eventually you have to have solutions.

        We love fighting and pulling each other down and maoris are not unique when it comes to that shit but we are good at it. We love a good fight especially when its chopping down those tall poppies. Dare any bastard put his head up and look out ,
        that chain saw comes out and your history.

        Maybe this is kama for Tainui. If you have proof about all these things certain people have done, then show it because from what I have seen so far it is speculative, hearsay and totally defamatory and thats not proof brother?

        All the infighting is a distraction. We keep recycling the same punch drunk brawlers back in the ring and they keep getting chucked out. Perhaps all the old buggars running the show need to be turfed from the King down.

        Most “not all” come with too much baggage, and an over inflated sense of importance. Couple that with egos that are in overdrive, a misdirected sense of entitlement and its more of the same crap, just different players.

        Get some young ones in there. There has to be plenty of young educated Tainui prospects that could run the show without all the kakabully that the old crocs serve up. Could they do any worse then what is currently happening? I dont think so.

        I think Tuku saw himself as a benevolent dictator as many maori leaders see themselves and unfortunately the people are not going to cop that shit anymore.
        You can do 100 good things for the tribe and 5 bad things and no one is going to remember the good things!

We’ll keep doing what we do by writing about the stuff that everybody already knows about, with or without your permission.

      It’s kind of funny how you don’t like our opinion about crooks who stole millions but you’re ready to give us your opinion about our web site.

    What day and time has Tuheitia set for the people to respond to his challenge for the people to tell him he is unfit to be King?


    • H.P
      Aug 15, 2012 @ 13:57:50

      Tuheitia needs to be reminded that he is not a Monarch from the European Royalty and no he doesn’t run his own Island like the Tongan family and that he is only a representative of “some” Iwi and hapu and sad to say he is not doing a very good job either. He certainly needs to be reined in or to be stepped down and replaced by someone worthy of the title or the alternative is to get rid of Kingitanga all together if Tuheitia is the only choice for this position. Shame on him and all that back him.
      It sure flushes Tainui pride down the toilet and all the work his fore-fathers and mother or should I say in many cases our fore-fathers had done before him.
      What Tuheitia does reflex on the rest of us, when I say that I mean all Maori.
      The general public see all Maori as tarred with the same brush it doesn’t matter that we may come from different Iwi. etc. How can we be proud to be Waikato/Tainui or even Maori when we have those that are confirming everything that Pakeha say about us as a people.
      What Tuheitia and his followers should be doing is to get out of the flash houses and cars, go out amongst the poor, sick, unemployed, badly housed. etc.
      Another good idea make a trip to the capital cities, “No” not to gamble walk down the streets and see how many of his people live there and do something about it, then I might believe his article about how much work he is doing for his people. Wa,wa,wa. etc.


  39. TeManawa
    Aug 21, 2012 @ 06:45:06

    It was intended that I speak today, arriving by invitation as expressed by Tuheitia in TeHookooi to do so. In the stragtegy of the last week those who have done as I have been suppressed. This is the challenge answered with a challenge I speak it now for all.

    Ko Waikato te awa

    Ko Taupiri te Maunga

    Ko Potatau te whero whero the tunga te whenua

    Ko Waikato te iwi

    Ko Turangawaewae me waahi pa nga marae

    Ko Ngati Mahuta te hapu

    Ko Hotoroa te rangiteria

    Ko TeManawa ahau.

    Hear the song of the kotuku

    as it lifts to greet the dawn

    Hear the winds whisper as the

    great eagle flies upon the heights

    Watching over all

    See the rebirth of the phoenix

    Rising to meet the new day

    Behold there is life.

    Tihei mauri ora

    E nga Rangi me papatuanuku Tena Koutou

    God please bless my people

    When a true heart lives There is life for all

    Na mihi kia kotau nga kaumatua, nga kuia, a nga whanaue tena koutou

    E nga Manuhiri Nau mai, haere mai, haere mai

    E te paepae tapu Tena kotau, tena kotau, tena kotau

    Iti te reo Maori ahau No reira Tena koutou tena koutou tena koutou katoa

    I am here at Tuheitia’s invitation expressed in Te Hookioi. Those who shall speak after me in response to his challenge are but the tip of the ice berg just as my few words today hold a vast story beneath them.

    It is known that in April 2006 our lady Te Arta called me to Turangawaewae on the succession as head of the kingitanga yet when the time came the decision to uphold the choice of the Tupuna, even our lady in her efforts, saw another placed.

    I was notified by an elder of the council of elders of Nga puhi of this event he also gave me reason for the intervention 6 years ago as one of who could be controlled and who could not; my response then the same as today “you have failed the world, the people, the Tupuna, and God”. He further disclosed to me that Tuheitia had knowingly been placed without the spiritual authority of the office. I know this to be true as it was placed with me under the stars at Te Meringa Te Kakara on the 21 June 2002 in the presence of elders of Maniapoto. Without the spiritual authority of this office there is no covenant. It stands to reason then that some or all of those who signed off on Tuheitia’s selection did so knowing this. At some level the people knew this. Now they are conscious of it.

    In 2007 Tuheitia wanted to do things his way since then he has been in conflict with the people, the Tupuna and the spiritual authority. It is not possible for him to be in charge. Recently I heard a statement that the people do not understand how the kingitanga works and need to be taught. I say that includes those at the top for I am the kingitanga, denied for being who I am in the forsaking of the spiritual document for political intent. Hence the last 6 years; and the Tupuna’s greatest lesson for all; that the kingitanga is upheld by God and the Tupuna. Those that have sought to control it diminish it and even finish it need to pay particular attention to this. For every action there is a reaction. 4th July 2007 I was asked to accept office as head of the Kingitanga which I did, it was then expressed to me Tuheitia does not want the job and we will be taking you through to place you. You will have advisors to help you rule. Nga puhi then offered their full support expressing their desire to work with my authority which in previous years had been acknowledged as being beyond all.

    As to sovereignty it is not of the vision to create a future driven by Control of the people based on fear and abuse intimidation and suppression nor what any of the people deserve. It is not upheld and can not last. We are at the beginning of a new dawn it is simply a choice of true liberation in non violation or continuance of the self destructive measures displayed over the last 6 years and longer. I encourage those who stand upon foundations of falsity to remove themselves from self interest and take up true service to the people that the vision breath the fullest potential of our future into being rather than the restrictions placed by the will of those who do not work in the best interests of the people or that potential.

    I have walked many years and many trails to arrive. Those trails written in journals long before I walked them and where the vision for the people is held (and daily records entered). Now more than ever I realise that the events of 21 June 2002 was an occurrence that has held the Tapu Mana, vision and authority safe for the people and the future. Thus I return these things today to my people in tact. It is my duty to save my people and even though Tuheitia might not understand it, him. It is my birth right to hold what I hold, but it is my service to my people that brings me forward today in restoration along with a message delivered from the elders in October of last year where I was notified that I was to think of my placement as head of the kingitanga is with restoration.

    What I have lived can not be UN lived what is known can not be unknown. I ask that these things be put right for the sake of all, and ask you not to desert all that the Tupuna and God has done for our people.

    A few weeks ago I spoke to the elders saying my love for them was not bound by this world. Currently flash mobs are breaking out all over the globe in the shape of the heart – let this be the sign now of what is already known that this authority is already global and has been for several years. Let it also stand as a reminder to all that Aotearoa is to be the heart center of the world.

    It was Hone Hika’s mere that was laid at my feet in challenge to take up my land and my people, today I answer that challenge formally as I make formal lawful and lore full challenge on the selection of and placement of Tuheitia as head of the Kingitanga and on his authority to hold such office. In response to Tuheitia’s opening of the way for the restoration to take place I say well done.

    As Queen I am returning trusteeship back to the rightful owner as defender of the faith, trustee of all mauri for the land of the Nations, and the spiritual people of the land is with guardianship of the people is with the responsibility.

    I also invoke the full support and commitments given to me over the years. Maniapoto in 2002, Tuwharetoa in 2006 and Nga Puhi in 2007. To Nga Puhi I say let the restoration as committed by the council of elders and elders be the peace between us, yet I say to you from this day forth te iwi a Waikato Tainui is no longer yours and is with the restoration the vision shall be placed in its purist forms for the higher good of all. My people stand up speak up be counted. kia Kaha kia toa kia Manawanui God is with you. Tena Kotau tena kotau tena kotau katoa

    E Te manawa why have you come to this page to stake your claim to the mantle of Kingitanga, Here you will find ill informed supporters because eraka has rallied people against Te Arikinui and there is no mana in starting with these people. I believe in order to gain a respectful audience then this is not the forum. Here you will likely only find people that will sneer at him and if you are a person with mana then that would not be an exit you would want anyone to take. If you would like to make your claim then chose a more credible medium. let eraka and her supporters carry on with their mahi tukino because they will inevitably turn on you when the time comes. She will never pledge allegiance to you because she wants things done her way and claim it as the will of the people. She is a conspirer who’ll trounce on you if you do not comply with her demands. .To eraka I have gone through this site and believe it to be nothing but a forum likened to a back alley soap box/paepae. I arrived with an open mind and found that I couldn’t make anything but a sneer at the people that you write about which gave me the opinion that you gave me that sense with your posts. I don’t respect you and what you are doing and your opinions are filth and you should be ashamed on how you speak ill of the Kingitanga you insinuate many scandals from thievery to gay relations have you no end? You call the king citizen paki and that shows your nature at it’s core. You don’t respect authority because you have an opinion about everything.. You’ll undoubtedly say i’d prefer to bury my head in the sand but that’s where it’s going now after reading whats on here, To eraka’s supporters I urge you to please consider what our lady would think, if the very life that she was forced to take on was torn down from behind.it’s own line. Ngā mihi ki a Koutou katoa, because it’s the Maori way to still show respect even when the sentiment and wairua isn’t nice. paimarire.

    interesting reading, particularly considering I’m Pakeha. Unlike what some people think, we Pakeha do not laugh because of the bickering and infighting. Quite the contrary- it is when Maori don’t ask the questions that have been raised here we wonder what is wrong with you. We want to see you ask the questions- where is the money going?, how is it helping your people?, we do not want to see you allow the rich and powerful amongst you take advantage.
    It doesn’t matter what culture you come from, there is always the corrupt, and we need to fight corruption no matter where it is coming from and who is doing it.

    Hi interested,
    my sentiments exactly, it seems to have always been this way. I’m third generation and I can remember hearing granddad bickering and making comments about different things and not doing anything constructive to change things way back when I was a small child now I’m in my late sixties. The faces of the people may have changed but the politics are the same and like always if you are not one of the chosen then don’t expect any pay-out.
    I always say Maori learnt very well from Pakeha e.g. How to steal, how to make promises that don’t get filfulled, liar, but not always clever enough to remember them, and lastly to make sure to walk over those who might get in the way.
    In my opinion the only thing that may deter them is Tikanga.


  47. Tainui Hard
    Feb 15, 2013 @ 14:38:20

    @ HP, Unfortunately even tikanga has been deliberately distorded to suit the agenda, ka aroha. You are correct though in saying that many of the selfish, greedy & corrupt ugliness has come through colonised thinking and behaviour, thats not to say its entirely the colonizers fault, as we have learned to adapt, accept & even maintain the love of self, money, power and control, sadly at the expense of our own. Kupapa is a word often used to describe this type of thinking & behaviour. Its tragic to think that the collective good of ALL is now being replaced by the singular gain of some, thats not tikanga.


  48. H.P.
    Feb 16, 2013 @ 09:47:01

    Tainui Hard,
    I agree with your comments in regards to the frequent useage of these words tikanga and kuupapa.
    What I should have done first was check on the meaning of the words kuupapa and tikanga. Hmmm these two words I guess may have to be used in the right context as one describes strenght and purpose, and the other described me not fluent in koorero tereo and can fall in to that trap of being a lemming, hear the word, hear others use the words and think it must be right. “Stupid me” another lesson I’ve learnt. Thank you.
    My last comment is this “Yes” we can blame colonisation and make excuses but in the end it’s up to the individual or collectively to make a choice to move forward for the betterment of all, where and when it is necessary but it seems like a bit of a poke in the dark the disputes don’t change and still the same people benefit.
    Any way thats my “Take” for this discussion whether I’m right or wrong if you don’t talk about it, it will never change. Ah!

    Funny really how all these modern Maori think theyve got a lock down on the culture just because they speak the language and know some songs,etc. And all my generation are left in the wake of all this tikanga bullshit. Fuck that shit, Maori didnt need pakeha to be cunning,ruthless or greedy. We just got outdone at our own game. How many people here really give a shit ? You hide behind this Eraka bitch, she is gutless too . Shes probably paid by the king of huntly to flush out the trouble makers. Think about it people, if it looks,smells,and tastes like shit, more often than not,.. its shit. Eraka !, your too scared to show your face, why dont you leave it to those who really have aroha. Your not achieving anything, your just stirring shit without committing to anything.

    Feb 17, 2013 @ 04:44:36

    Tut, tut, EDOG. This site keeps it real and provides a forum for people to vent, discuss, criticise, inform & at times rant & abuse, thats nothing new, that happens on the paepae, in this case however people have a choice to remain anonymous or reveal their identity. The point is, our tradional forums, poukai, hui a iwi, etc, do not allow for such frank open discussions, where the tough questions should be asked and honest answers given. Tragically, Waikato Tainui iwi are still being deceived, conditioned & lied to by the very people meant to lead, help and fiscally manage our assets for our benefit. Tuhei & his lackeys are desperate to maintain the status quo for fear of having their access to our money challenged or worse..stopped. Thats the real issue.

    Feb 17, 2013 @ 07:35:58

    EDOG, if it wasn’t for a blog like this you, I and many others would not be able to express how we truly feel about what is said and done against us and to us and yes, may be there hasn’t been the change necessary. Don’t shoot the messager as it gave you a forum to let it all out didn’t it.
    My question to you with all the yelling and swearing is this, if male did you stand on the paepae, attend a poukai or go to this last big hui Tuheitia called together and put forward your thoughts… for and against things that are not supporting the lower escalon as any of these places would have been a good start.
    As for me female, non tereo, which are two handicaps in the Maori and sometimes in the Western world.
    I have no glue who Ereka is and I don’t care but this blog introduced me to you and many more and it initiated me to put out there what mine and alot of others meaning: Pakeha, Maori and other ethic peoples say about us as a collective not as individuals this I personally disagree with I make my own choices and have my own thoughts and certainly have the right to “agree or disagree on whatever the matter is!
    EDOG I want to thank you and others that are of the same mind thought, it’s just as they say the meat in the sandwich which is ironic in my case as I’m an apescaterian but any way I procrastinate… it gives the likes of me the right to pull and tug at it and then to share that which is of interest to those on this blog and those that I acquaint myself with.

    Our ancestors of Old never arrived on these shores for nothing to have it taken from us by not only the crown, but SOME OF our own iwi working for systems we dont fit in to. As for Tainui Kingitanga current leadership – it is as it is, at this time, & I disagree with some goings on too. No reira I believe a NEW MOVEMENT is at Hand! Titiro mai! Whakaronga mai! The current Treaty of Waitangi settlements are underway and TE ARAWA NEVER signed their queens document contract agreement. Therefore the future of the Kingitanga MANTLE may well be passed to an Ariki ranking lineage o Te Arawa – AS ARRANGED BY THE ANCESTORS. Be encourage and be watching for signs. Kia tau te RANGIMARIE.

      I agree with what you have said, especially the part where you discuss the Kingitanga mantle.
      I have had messages from Tawhiao and Te Puea in regards to this issue.
      I have been told to tell all those I come in contact with that Tuhei’s son is not the next in line nor is his family nor any of his siblings families. Tawhiao states that the line is not correct and whose to say that it should not have been a woman. He takes me back to as far as Mahuta. The person who should lead will show themselves when the time is right.
      Tawhiao also states that the Kingitanga is at its weakest and is looked upon as a circus, by those on the outside looking in, and Tuhei is the clown in the middle.
      Te Puea states,”60 years I have been passed where are the houses for my people?” She is angry and disgusted.
      I requested a meeting with Tuheitia to pass on the messages from his Tupuna, Tawhiao and Te Puea, but he chose to launch his new boat the morning of the meeting that was to be had.
      He has gone way off track and is a disgrace to the people.
      He fears my gift, as the messages I have been given speak of TRANSPARENCY and most of all TRUTH and HONESTY. Words that once were what the Kingitanga movement was all about.

    The misappropriation (theft) of raupatu and other monies belonging to the 60,000 or so beneficiaries of Tainui by those elected to represent them must cease forthwith and those responsible for the carnage prosecuted. Are we so naive, so blind, so gullible, so inept that we can’t or don’t want to admit that Kingitanga is now seen by many New Zealanders (including many Maori) as a farce, a lie, a travesty, a fraud. Why are we putting up with the machiavellian machinations of limp wristed liars, thieves, pretenders and predators such as Tuku, Rahui, Tommy, Henry and the one who dares to call himself “King”?

    Who will stand up to the vermin who threaten to destroy the economic future of our people? Here’s an idea. Those hapu and marae who believe that they have been ripped off by the “King & Co” could seek legal redress by dropping a high court injunction on them that freezes the assets of Te Kauhanganui, TGH and associated parties, which will force all parties to the bargaining table whereby the “distressed
    applicants” negotiate a $300Million draw down of debt free assets that they will walk away with to reestablish themselves as an independent Pan Tribal entity. A class action scenario such as this is cheeky, would be a massive wake up call for the King & Co and might just work!

      AM. The likes of Tuku Morgan, Mark Solomon, Sonny Tau, Apirana Mahuika, Matiu Rei and Margaret Mutu who are members of the Iwi Leaders Forum (ILF), are making key socioeconomic decisions on behalf of Iwi across Aotearoa. The Forum is not a creature of legislation yet is prepared to circumvent protocol to trample on the mana of The NZ Maori Council (NZMC), the latter being created by the Maori Community Development Act 1962. The Act authorises the NZMC to assist in the assimilation of Maori into the “system” via various government departments including State Advances and the Education Department. The ILF is basically the Maori version of the Business Round Table. The ILF is Maori corporatocracy at its worst; the sins, connivances, and mis/malfeasances of some of its members being visited upon their unwitting beneficiaries.

      Morgan, Tuheitia and their ilk will use the ILF and the Key government to destroy the voice of Tainui Te Kauhanganui, give Tainui Group Holding’s CEO Mike Pohio the ability to secure an unsustainable, unlimited debt ceiling over its already precarious balance sheet, and will do it while crying poverty.

      AM, I hope you’re in this for the long haul.

        There is a bigger picture going on here and these people are selling everyone out like the true kupapa they are. Hone Key has his own agenda and he is using these little brown traitors to help him control their people and ram things through that he believes he can get away with before the people wake up.

        This guy is doing shit that will bring trouble and he knows it. The number of police body guards he has around him would surprise most New Zealaners. He is the only NZ prime minster to have a house full of cops living next door to him? In a reasonably safe place like NZ why does he feel the need to do that? Maybe he knows something we don’t?

        Why does he have an iron grip on the GCSB which is there to do his dirty work? In time we will look back and judge him to be one of the the worst prime minsters this country ever had and there have been some bad ones. The Maori corporatocracy need to be pulled into line.

    I think this blog rocks! I don’t really care cheats rule the Taunui money like I’ve been brought up you reap what you sow! It may seem like you cheat the Tainui people but your so wrong you cheat only yourself and your own offspring a legacy of money cheaters isn’t something to be proud of I’m sure other tribes are guilty of this also. Tainui need to led by example and that’s not putting money into your own pockets does anyone in Tainui know what service is??? Obviously NOT! Serving others isn’t for your financial gain its to better help others for the long term. And to put yourself last. I don’t know who’s the cheaters but they do trust me you will one day account why lie to yourselfs your not fooling those that read this blog. My parents are Kaumatuas they are well respected in our community people are amazed by them not because they are financially affluent but because they serve others not only all their mokos and children around then they serve in their community they befriend all their neighbours have them over for dinner, visit then when they are sick. My mum goes out at 72 and cleans Young Maori Mothers homes when she feels inspired to help no one helps her as she is vibrant and she has done that for more than 10 years living in Australia. You know which Maori children has seen my Mum clean their home why they look at her with gratitude as my Mother is graceful helps out doesn’t tell anyone or discuss why she helps she sees a need and just does it. If I didn’t ring her everyday I wouldn’t know myself. My Dad almost 80 goes out and serves others if they need something done a solo Mothers window to be replaced he does that handy work he helps out. Not heard of Tainui serving there own people in these ways these aren’t even monetary services these are showing others they are important we care we can help. Simplfy the cause and be doers! Money will never unite a tribe or fix problems only people can and only through real care and love for each other. Take away money what do you have families that is where the answer lies. Strengthen the Family and you become a powerful tribe not for money for good for happiness.

    The truth of the matter is that this forum is about TRANSPARENCY, TRUTH and HONESTY. I see that its purpose is highly positive. To bring about the change is to gather as many of us like minded individuals and put us in a room and sort how best to attack the present Kingitanga, Waikato/Tainui situation. Your following, Eraka, is only going to increase. I would welcome a cuppa with you some time!! keep up the positive support for this forum everyone.

      I just wanted to thank you for delivering the message to the people, Te Manawa requested the Te Puna, Te Puia Our Lady Te ata, Tawhiao, to go to the people and take this message to them, that they would know, and you have delivered it. So I am delivering her thank you on her behalf. Kia Ora.

    Kia Ora,

    Hope you’re well.

    I’m a Maori film maker, born on the west coast of the South Island. In January this year, my partner and I drove around New Zealand for 6 months collecting the stories of ordinary people. We filmed and interviewed almost everyone we met, and turned the footage into 1-minute video-portraits. Currently there are 31 one-minute portraits available to watch on our website http://www.humanpostcards.com, and we have filmed over 50 portraits in total. This is a non for profit project that we created out of the desire to find powerful messages in the everyday.

    I think you will like the message of Tana in particular:

    (#25) Tana – Woodcarver https://vimeo.com/138309270

    For more portrait please visit our website.
    We would love to have your opinion and feel free to share those one minute capsules.

    With Gratitude,

    Arie & Nora

    “Hui tatou ka tu. Wehewehe tatou ka hinga.” United we stand. Divided we fall.

    Unfortunately, modern society is the nature of the beast. In this dog eat dog, world many have fallen victim to greed and the “almighty dollar” whose house is built on sand.

    Many have lost the vision of our tupuna to love all, to share all that one is and be in harmony with all.

    The young are our taonga the foundation of our tomorrow. They must be nurtured, loved and are hungry for truth, honesty, true leadership, direction and transparency. Go back to basics. It is not all about money. Give them back their heritage, their mana, their identity the taonga that can never be stolen. These are tomorrow’s building blocks for a united, better future.

    Hold fast the path.

    Kia ora
