Which way are they gonna vote this time?

Back in January, the Marae committee at Turangawaewae voted overwhelmingly to SUPPORT the current T.K. chair Tania Martin and instructed their reps to do so at the crucial vote. The very next day the Maori king heard about this turn of events and ordered the Turangawaewae reps to vote AGAINST Tania Martin at the meeting.

So there is a question mark over which way they actually voted that day, isn’t there?

Recently we have heard rumors that Tuku Morgan has personally hand picked Turangawaewae rep, N. Williams, to be the boss of the new Tainui prison that Tuku is determined to have built… if this is all true which way do you think Williams vote will fall?

It’s also no coincidence that Williams has been very vocal in his support of Te Arataura lately…

Its been said that…

…certain Tainui executives have taken to labeling Hukanui Marae as the “traitor Marae” in their conversations… that’s typical behavior that we expect from those people anyway.

the Maurea Poukai

It will be a very interesting day at Maurea Marae!

It seems apparent that the Maurea Poukai on Feb 26 looks set to become a modern maori battleground of sorts… with the maori king astounded by the unwillingness of his disloyal peasants to toe the line… and having already boycotted Hukanui Marae they are rallying the executive troops together… ready to dish up the dirt on Te Kauhanganui chairwoman Tania Martin… because the Tainui parliament meets the following day on the 27th…

Whats at stake? Millions & Millions…

Whats in the way? An uncooperative Tainui tribal parliament… a financial review of Tainui executive spending… governance review… transparency… accountability…

[The boycotters of the Hukanui Poukai are getting ready to make their grand show at Maurea.]

Hukanui Poukai day commentary

Kia ora! A huge shout goes out to Paree for this wonderful contribution:

Hukainui Poukai was full of Arohanui with a good turnout of Ngati Wairere Whanui and the vistors who came appreciated the Flag flying of Te Atairangi Kaahu our recent beloved Queen. Her Daughter who came down to our Pokai from Te Puea Marae in Mangere with her followers were blessed and showed her love with tears of Gratitude and sadness her Brother Tuheitia may have missed out on on such a humle Pokai by the locals who all worked so hard to make it a happy and successful day regardless of the setback..

Maybe the person who returned Kingi Tueitia,s flag thru her own selfish judgemental attitude of Ngati Wairere nui tonu may regret her selfish motives, cutting herself off by her actions and power seeking motives with no regard to the Poukai Kaupapa of having been actioned by Kingi Tawhiao for the Widows and ophans of the past to the present in his time of Reign to Wairere our Tupuna.

Maa na ano hei patu itona kino mo tona mahi ia Ngati Wairere..AkeAke Tonu…

the Hukanui Poukai

Will the maori king boycott today’s poukai at Hukanui Marae as punishment for those marae which supported Tania Martin at the recent Kauhanganui vote?

Did Tainui management hand over the results of the ‘secret’ voting ballot to Te Arataura and the maori king’s cronies? So is there a list of the 32 marae, and are there going to be recriminations from the highrarchy?

Update coming soon!

[Update: The maori king did not attend the Poukai at Hukanui. Ngati Haua people also boycotted the Poukai. Reports from eye witnesses who attended say that it was a great day out at Hukanui Marae on Saturday. The attempt to turn Hukanui into a pariah marae failed miserably. Kia ora!]

Te Arataura executives smash it up at Tainui meeting!

Frustrated Te Arataura board member Timi Maipi (so weak he couldn’t punch his way out of a wet paper bag anyway LOL) tried to get physical and land a few gay haymakers on fellow board member Sonny Wilson after a heated Tainui board meeting back in December… it must have been soo funny… there were no reports of black eyes or broken noses after the incident.

Background info: Timi Maipi is Tuku’s best buddy and Sonny Wilson is the board member that Tuku Morgan falsely accused of leaking information to the media.

Poukai flag stolen…


Mrs Monkey, could you pleese return the flag you stole!

Would the cheeky monkey who stole the Poukai flag from Hukanui Marae please bring it back.

The Hukanui Marae committee would really love to have their flag returned and are promising to give the cheeky monkey lots of bananas if She returns it in good condition. Kia ora!

Update from Turangawaewae Marae

Kauhanganui letter sent by Charles Joe

Tonight residents of Turangawaewae Marae had their opinion heard and voted  to confirm their support of current Te Kauhanganui chairperson Tania Martin.

Turangawaewae Marae has overwhelmingly approved of Mrs. Martin’s plans to audit and cap the excessive spending habits of Tainui’s Te Arataura executive board headed by Tuku Morgan.

Mrs. Martin has stated that she proposes to bring transparency, accountability and fairness when dealing with Tainui’s financial affairs.

Attempts by Te Arataura to have Mrs. Martin disqualified because of errors in her November 2010 report to Te Kauhanganui were strongly rejected at tonight’s meeting.
