Why Blog Has Existed Since 2010

 "You can't rebuild a community on a sore full of pus." 

This blog was created in 2010 to highlight the issues of miss-management of Iwi finances, and the Iwi business practices surrounded in secrecy.  

With Trust Deeds and Constitutions that stripped members of all equal rights.  People "shoulder tapped for Iwi jobs and management.” 
 It uncovered more than it bargained for, with 95% of Iwi having no idea what had occurred and what was going on.  Fisheries Treaty Claim Fisheries Settlement used to buy a Café and Central District Health Board (CCDHB) money spent on a folly for a sole Director/Manager.  
We then had, three years of fisheries' quota income used by Atiawa ki Whakarongotai Charitable Trust to pay the money taken from CCDHB.  It is still surrounded in secrecy to this day.  Charitable Trust hires Forestry Workers and does not pay the GST the Trust as employers were responsible for - not the employees.   So now they are paying of their GST with Fishery's income.
Two whanau were nominated to be the emotional scapegoats.  They were not the whānau that wanted to buy a Café they were out voted by a majority of Parata Whānau Iwi executives.  To this day, they are still being used as the scapegoats for everything.
Finally in we get back to, the generational issue of IN-EQUALITY.  Those with only Ngātiawa blood verses those with dual whakapapa with Ngati Toa and Raukawa. 
New relationships will need to be established for EQUALITY and co-existence in the future…
Controversial it has been;  attempts to have police shut blog down, threats of being sued, letters from lawyers threatening all sorts, psychical threats, ostracisation,  every aspect of the Stigma and Discrimination link... highlighted in legislation and Like Minds, Like Mine program operated by government, attempts of maketu/cursing, intimidation, stand over tactics, being yelled at, division of family, you name it every ugly behaviour that promotes in-equality and ostracisation it has happened.  
Why? No one wanted to be exposed for what they actually did, neither will they own or apologise for their bad behaviour.  Fear of change...  
Where do we stand - we forgive them as "they know not what they do."
