E5 Salient Māori News week ending 28 February 2020

 

  • Tracey McIntosh has been appointed a member of the Criminal Case Review Commission (CCRC) Establishment Advisory Group.
  • Ngai Tukairangi Trust (Mt Maunganui), Otama Marere Trust (Tauranga) and Hineora Orchard Te Kaha 15B Ahuwhenua Trust from (Te Kaha) have been named as the inaugural horticultural finalists for the Ahuwhenua Trophy excellence in the Māori agricultural sector. The winner will be announced at the awards ceremony 22 May 2020.
  • Ihumātao. Yesterday Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga confirmed the outcome of its review of the Ōtuataua Stonefields (i.e. the Ihumātao lands).  The review revised the lands to a Category 1 listing (was Category 2) and extends the protected area.  This means the area is now recognised as a place of special or outstanding heritage significance on New Zealand’s national list of cultural and historic heritage.  But that does not extinguish pre-existing resource consents issued to Fletcher Building to develop the land.  As yet, no deal has been announced as to how matters might proceed – although the rumour is that the Government will loan/grant circa $45 million to the Auckland Council to purchase the land from the developers; which might then be gifted back to the people of New Zealand.   We will advise further once announcements are made.
  • Today the Minister for Māori Development Minister, Nanaia Mahuta, and the Minister for Indigenous Australians, Ken Wyatt will sign an Indigenous Collaboration Arrangement. The arrangement aims to promote economic, social and cultural advancement between New Zealand and Australia indigenous peoples.
