Judicial Conference 30 Jun 2015

Mandated Muaupoko Tribal Counsel (MTC) and Direct Negotiations

A debate occurred between Waitangi Tribunal Judicial Conference (JC) - Adjudicators Judge Carin Fox and Honourable Sir Doug Kidd and Office of Treaty Settlements (OTS) Crown Counsel.  Regarding direct negotiations excluding the majority of Muaupoko claimants present.  Undermining the Waitangi Tribunal process.
OTS Crown Counsel has been asked this question by the JC Adjudicators; "will the Crown issue a statement confirming the Crown will not resume direct negotiations with MTA until all of the claims in Porirua ki Manawatū district inquiry have been heard and reported on?The answer is expected by 27 July 2015.  
OTS Counsel was notified Ngātiawa ki Kapiti Coast claimants have the same issue.  OTS Counsel replied to WAI 1018 "with the Te Atiawa out there trying to go into direct negotiations."  WAI 1018 informed OTS Counsel Atiawa ki Whakarongotai Charitable Trust has "NO BENEFICIARIES" according to their trust deed and the 2012 Solicitor Generals report.  It's been like that since 2002.  He was astounded. 
There currently is a joke going around Atiawa ki Whakarongotai Charitable Trust (AWCT), its company directors and members, and NZTA expressway employees that they will "let WAI 1018 do all the work and then AWCT will come in and take the credit and take over direct negoiations" to rip Ngātiawa tuturu of again.  
 We will watch and see what the JC Adjudicators and OTS Crown Counsel, registered Ngātiawa Iwi Charitable Trust whanau and our Barristers do with that manipulative-abusive and dishonourable behaviour.  The Crown will be held responsible should they let that theft occur again.

Raukawa and Te Ati Awa Team

No, Te Ati Awa WAI claims are identified in this document, advocated by Te Hono ki Raukawa, referred to as the Raukawa and Ati Awa Team. 

 Raukawa and Te Ati Awa Research Plan  click on link

Ngati Kauwhata stated today 22/06/2015 they were not part of the Raukawa Confederation, in a document filed to tribunal office.  
As Ngātiawa ki Kapiti te Taku Tai is not part of the A.R.T Confederation. 
This statement written in a report on the Atiawa ki Whakarongotai Charitable Trust states very clearly why we are not. 
Written in Solicitor Generals 2012 Report:
It is stated, Damian Parata, Denise Parata. Tutere Parata, Daniel Mullen, Jack Rikihana, Bill Carter, "were all naïve."  In formulating the Atiawa ki Whakarongotai Charitable Trust “Trust Deed.”  
"They were incompetent, had no understanding, experience or business skills to invest into any business scheme." 
Furthermore, according to the Solicitor General, the trustees “did not have a sufficient understanding of the role of trustees of a charitable trust where there are no direct beneficiaries.” 
“charitable trust where there are no direct beneficiaries"  
All the same people with a couple of add on's control this trust today.   No changes have been made to constitution.

Otaraua Park Amended

Otaraua Hapu ki Kapiti and Otaraua ki Taranaki

Positive discussion's were held with Otaraua representative David Doorbar of Taranaki in regards to our Otaraua collective hapū this week.  
We agreed unanimously that the name Ngātiawa Iwi claimants WAI 1018 - stated to Kapiti Coast District Council prior to the naming of Otaraua Park was the correct name to be used.  As recorded in a meeting with KCDC with four people present, prior to receiving a call from adversaries a month later agreeing on Otaraua Park as the name. 
David Doorbar has been advocating to reinstate our Otaraua Hapū, original Ngātiawa Iwi name with WAI 1018 since 2009.

OUR STORY WILL BE TOLD... THROUGH OUR EYES...

WAI 88 & 89 Parata and Ngati Toa - Nga Korero Tuku Iho (NKTI)

Te Atiawa ki Whakarongotai Marae - 22 April, 2015

Let it be known this NKTI was totally about the Parata Whanau, Te Rauparaha and Ngati Toa.  Ngātiawa mentioned occasionally as an afterthought. 
Several speakers were silenced by Judge Carin Fox, due to the fact Barrister Moana Sinclair did not prepare her clients.  As to the process and guidelines for a NKTI.  
Ngātiawa WAI 1018 did not attend NKTI, however three of our barristers did attend on our behalf.  With text updates and phone calls throughout the day to their clients.  
However, our Ngātiawa whanau did us proud they were all the cooks in the kitchen and waiting on the tables.  They fed the tribunal, guests and Ngati Toa well.  As they have done for over 100 years in Waikanae.  With dignity, they stayed silent and observed.  The Chief Chef in the kitchen is a trustee for Ngātiawa Iwi Trust - and honors her mother's whakapapa.
While enduring extreme Lateral Violence by organiser's, Parata's and Ngati Toa-ness Iwi.  One 73 year-old Ngātiawa Kuia had to step back to stop being hit during the hongi, with the Judge standing beside her, another Parata threaten a wahine with a patu.
Ngātiawa WAI 1018 claimants will not allow government to forces us to attend hui and continue to be subjected to and endure lateral violence.  That breaches the NZ Bill of Rights Act.
This behaviour from Parata's and Ngati Toa-ness whānau has been practiced since 1860's - 155 years of thuggery from the Maori Politicians whānau and their supporters.  Observed in all its glory in 2015 by the Waitangi Tribunal, Office of Treaty Settlements staff, barristers and visitors - they shamed themselves. As they spoke about their fears, to the Waitangi Tribunal and asserted lateral violence.   
Ngātiawa WAI 1018 tuturu - Nga Atua me Nga Tupuna rule at the end of the day.  Blessed we are and thanks we give.  
 Ngātiawa Iwi Trust-Trustees manage WAI 1018, 609, 608 and 238 with Ngātiawa ki Waitara WAI 2228 specifically for displaced whanau in Ngātiawa who do not have dual Māori Whakapapa.  
However, Ngātiawa will never leave out the mokopuna with dual whakapapa.  Who ACCEPT LATERAL VIOLENCE will not be tolerated from those with dual whakapapa.

Pirikawau Translations Completed

The translations that belong to Pirikawau o Ngātiawa written in old Taranaki dialect have been completed.

We give thanks to our Koro - Doctor Huirangi Waikerepuru QSM, Kuia Mereiwa Broughton JP-QSM, Te Urutahi Waikerepuru, Tengaruru Wineera of Te Matahiapo Indigenous Research Center, Taranaki. click link Te Matahiapo Indigenous Research Center
The Ministry of Justice/Legal Aid has paid a sum for the true and accurate translations of old Taranaki dialect by the man credited as an expert in Taranaki Reo.  His activism with others was responsible for reinstating Te Reo back into the education system of this country, Koro Huirangi.  
It was his renowned credibility that enabled Ngātiawa WAI 1018 claimants to obtain funds for the translations.
Kuia Mereiwa Broughton has certified translations as a JP-QSM, seal and copyright belongs to registered Ngātiawa Iwi CC: 49951
We can say this is the largest investment Min of Justice has ever paid out to have translations done for any Treaty Claim in the country. 
The Ngātiawa ki Kapiti Coast whanau who owns these translations in 2015 are the blood of Pirikawau and Kahutatara te Pukerangiora, their son Hoani Pirikawau-Tamati his issue and mokopuna.   They know who they are... 
We give many thanks to Koro Huirangi, Kuia Mere, Urutahi and Tengaruru - thank you so much for being part of restoring the mana of our tupuna.  
We also thank David Stone our barrister who guided us through negotiations with Min of Justice.  So we could pay Koro for his incredible mahi.

The Ted, Damian and Ani Parata WAI 88 & 89 - Nga Korero Tuki Iho Hearing for the Parata-Stubbs Whanau at Whakarongotai Marae on the 22 April, 2015.

One of the largest whanau of Ngatiawa tuturu have been banned from Whakarongotai Marae, Waikanae according to reports from the Ropata - Parata Waikanae Whanau.  
The majority of other whanau on Kapiti Coast have stopped going to the Marae due to physical and lateral violence.  
They also do not support the breach of all tikanga maori principals that have been placed on the the customary land of their tupuna.
