What did Sir Apirana Ngata have to say about the Treaty?

In his review of New Zealand’s history, Sir Apirana Ngata (1874-1950), our greatest Maori MP said:

“Let me acknowledge first, that in the whole world I doubt whether any native race has been so well treated by a European people as the Maori.” And:  “These are the words of the first article of the Treaty of Waitangi. The First Article: “The Chiefs assembled including Chiefs not present at the assembly hereby cede absolutely to the Queen of England for ever the Government of all of their lands”

These are but a few words but they indicate a complete cession.”

He Puapua – The Blueprint for Maori Control

The current state of He Puapua (18 July 2023 )

As recommendations of the report have become a reality, Labour has been quick to distance themselves from this report, denying it is policy, denying it is a plan, and denying that they have acted on the recommendations. Nothing to see here, folks. Or is there…

Fact Checking

The United Nations Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP)

Much is being made of our “obligations” to UNDRIP but activists conveniently ignore Article 46:3 – The provisions set forth in this Declaration shall be interpreted in accordance with the principles of justice, democracy, respect for human rights, equality, non-discrimination, good governance and good faith.

BILL HAMILTON: "I saw one of the slides (Julian Bachelor's slide) there saying that Māori are arming"

 First, listen to this interview between Paul Brennan, Julian Batchelor and Bill Te Huia Hamilton, Chairman of the Iwi Chairs Forum. 

He is supposed to be a senior Maori leader in New Zealand. All his experience is listed below. But really it means nothing because he’s a terrible liar who has been caught out. The lies start pretty much immediately, in the first 3 minutes on the interview. Listen to what he says about Julian’s seminar slide show.

John Tamihere, Te Pati Maori President

speaking on the Tova podcast

‘ (John Tamihere) warned of civil disobedience which could shut down cities and major center’s if a referendum on the Treaty went ahead. If Māori were backed into a corner on the issue they would have to resort to protest, he said. That protest will be significant, as it should be … there will be days of national Māori action and they’ll close down Whangarei, Auckland, Tauranga, Hamilton, Wellington.’  View here

Buddy Mikaere – former director of the Waitangi Tribunal 

from an article by Frank Chung  12 Oct 2023

“[The movement) (meaning co gov) is big enough that they get people up and out protesting about it, it’s got a reasonable following. But it’s mainly the older generation. What I’m saying is, look, just calm down – these people are going to die, and the world their grandchildren are being raised in is a far different one. Just ride it out and be patient, but in the meantime you do have to put up with some rubbish.”

The Way Forward
