"Last week, a story ran in mainstream media under the headline, 'Northland Mayoral Forum to work alongside Taitokerau Iwi' and in Māori media as, 'Northland hapū group says forum signing undermines sovereignty'. The event that triggered these different headlines was the co-signing of a ‘governance agreement’ between members of the Northland Mayoral Forum and the Taitokerau Iwi Chairs Forum. But a few Iwi, including Ngāti Kahu, neither supported nor attended its signing."

The Ministry for Primary Industries today reduced the area affected by the public health warning against collecting shellfish on the Northland East Coast to the area between Kokota (The Sandspit) and Farmer Point. SEE THE MAP BELOW.
KIA TUPATO WHANAU: While the warning is in place, it's a calculated risk to take and eat shellfish from the area - engari, kei a koutou.
Aroha mai whanau there was no cellphone service at the marae, so thanks to John O’Hare for filming most of the hui.
SUMMARY OF WHAT HAPPENED: The korero was facilitated by Te Runanga-a-Iwi o Ngati Kahu and, as the video clips below show, it was a well-attended hui that unfolded in four stages, beginning with hakatau and hakautu. https://www.facebook.com/NgatiKahu/videos/2069181946449344/
PURPOSES: Ngāti Kahu and Shanghai CRED conduct an annual cultural exchange and diplomatic mission to share our cultures, strengthen our mutual understanding and friendship, explore commercial opportunities of benefit to our peoples, progress in harmony.
Prepping for this year’s Shanghai cultural mission, we again collected a range of Ngati Kahu mahi toi and produce to gift to our hosts, guides, service people and others we meet along the way. These were all so beautiful.
