Want a chat with the Maori King? OK, but make it snappy

Want to meet the Maori King at the grand ball? Women should wear tiaras and avoid trousers – and, please, speak to him politely for only a couple of minutes.

King Tuheitia’s chief of protocol, Helen Kotua, has issued detailed sartorial instructions and even specific questions guests should pose when they meet him at a Grand Ball at Turangawaewae Marae in August.

“The Dress code is Strict to all guests. For the Gentlemen, it is Evening Tails, Regalia, Decorations and Miniatures. For the Ladies, Gown’s [sic], decorations, miniatures & Tiara’s [sic], no Slacks or Trousers,” says the protocol guide.

“I do reiterate this dress code and beseech you to be respectful of this occasion.”

Guests are encouraged to lead conversation, although it should be kept to only two subjects, and people should ask only polite questions, keeping the whole encounter to one or two minutes maximum. More

Bye bye John

Te Arataura fires Tainui Group Holdings board member John Spencer. Presumably to replace Spencer with a more suitable cronie friend of Tuku’s…

What are you hiding Te Arataura?

TO: “Tuku Morgan” , “Parekawhia McLean”

CC: “Charles Joe” , “Patience Te Ao” , “Timi Maipi” , “Rahui Papa” , “Rukumoana Schaafhausen” , “Greg Miller” , “Sonny Wilson” , “Maxine Moana-Tuwhangai” , “Kingi Porima” , “John Spencer” , “Mike Pohio” , “Chris Joblin” , “Tama Potaka”

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

Sweet Jesus! The king demands 20 Mill from the people of Tainui?

Is it true that the maori king wants the people of Tainui to stump up $20 million for his pet projects?

The funds are needed to ‘renovate’ historical buildings at Ngaruawahia, apparently.

Its the job of his cronie Rahui Papa to sell this lie to the people of the Tainui tribe over the coming weeks.

The ordinary people of Tainui keep getting less and less, and some body else keeps demanding more and more!
