I am a tribal beneficiary and demand that Te Arataura adhere to the decisions of Waikato Tainui Te Kauhanganui.

General meeting of Waikato Tainui Te Kauhanganui inc held 27 November 2010, te kauhanganui appointed a standing committee to review our tribal governance, in particular, the activities & performance of Te Arataura.

General meeting of Waikato Tainui Te Kauhanganui inc held 27 February 2011, Te Kauhanganui approved the review budget, gave full authority to the review standing committee and reconfirmed a 7-member review committee with observers.

Special general meeting of Waikato Tainui Te Kauhanganui inc held 20 march 2011, Te Kauhanganui reinforced all prior decisions via full endorsement of the chair’s February 2011 report to Te Kauhanganui.

Tukoroirangi Morgan, Parekawhia McLean, and all Te Arataura members – what are you hiding? Stop blocking the review and do what the people have asked.

Let the review committee do their job and let this review happen – or – prepare for a revolt by the people and for statutory management. Adhere to the decisions of Te Kauhanganui and be accountable to the people – now. No more delays. No more excuses. No more bullying. No more insubordination. No more misleading the people. More

Tainui people reinstate Tania Martin

Hukanui Marae votes to support TKH Chairperson

Hukanui Marae voted 26-to-14 to support the current chair of Te Kauhanganui at a hui in Gordonton two nights ago.

A heated discussion between marae representatives ensued which ended with representatives screaming at each other.

Its rumored that a marae rep. who disagrees with the result of the vote may attempt to sabotage Hukanui’s vote at Hopuhopu on Jan. 22. Could this be true?

Many other marae are indicating their preference to support the current chairperson and to have a comprehensive review of Tainui’s finances take place as soon as possible.
