A Tuhoe leader says the Waitangi Tribunal has delivered a penetrating, sound and honest report on how the Crown treated the iwi and Te Urewera over the past 116 years; The former chairman of the Treaty of Waitangi Fisheries Commission says it's ironic that as 20 years of signing the Sealord Deal is celebrated, Maori are in court fighting water rights; One of the organisers of the first Rangitane tribal festival says the event was a success because it encouraged more iwi descendants to reconnect with their people and feel proud of who they are.
