Submitted by admin2 on Fri, 29/05/2009 - 11:06pm

In April 2009 the Prime Minister and Minister of Treaty of Waitangi Negotiations met with Iwi leaders from throughout the motu to discuss seven ideas to accelerate Treaty settlements.

A joint response was made to these ideas by the members of Te Hiku O Te Ika Iwi Forum - Ngati Kuri, Te Aupouri, Ngaitakoto, Te Rarawa and Ngati Kahu.

That response has now been posted into the Private Area.

As an associate member of the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, Te Runanga-a-Iwi o Ngati Kahu urge all our whanau, marae, churches me nga roopu katoa to sign and support the petition calling on the New Zealand government to ratify the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People.

New Zealand was one of only four member countries of the UN who refused to ratify the DRIP when it was put to the vote in 2007.  The other three countries were Canada, the United States of America and Australia.
