The naming of Otaraua Park on the Waikanae River, where the new rugby fields are at Otaihanga. Is a non-issue! Unless whānau want to maintain petty backstabbing.
Te Atiawa ki Whakarongotai Marae Chairman, George Jenkins contact your Aunty, Cherie Seamark representative for Te Atiawa ki Whakarongotai Charitable Trust at Kapiti Coast District Council. I whānau discussion was held talk to your Aunty Mei Thomas-Hughes.
This whenua is a major discussion in WAI 1018 Ngātiawa Treaty Claim at a higher level than KCDC for the original Ngātiawa Iwi of Kapiti Coast.
Otaraua Waitara a Non-Issue: Descendants of brothers Chiefs Te Tupe o Tu, Te Hau te Horo and Pahia from Waikanae have NO say in Waitara regarding Otaraua business.
All Otaraua Chiefs came to Waikanae with Te Reretawhangawhanga and his son Te Rangaatake and Te Pukerangiora.
David Doorbar of Otaraua Waitara was notified out of curtsey. However, they are not the Hierarchical Chiefs over Pahia mokopuna Eruini te Marau and Tamati-Pirikawau-Pukerangiora whānau.
Yes! Hemi Sundgren and Matui Baker did by-pass Pahia mokopuna in Waikanae the Eruini-Tamati/Thomas whanau regarding the Otaraua exhibition.
As they see the Eruini/Edwin-Tamati/Thomas whanau at Waikanae as insignificant. An insult to the mokopuna of Pahia, the only living brother after the battle of Haowhenua battle. To create whānau distension in Waikanae and between Otaraua Waitara and Otaraua Waikanae. A NZ government tactic to keep whānau and hāpu divided.
As researchers Sundgren and Baker should know better. Don't preach Kotahitanga when you maintain the division of whānau as a sideline ego based event.
FYI: The drive by Te Atiawa ki Whakarongotai charitable Trust, Marae, associated companies executives and Ngati Toa since 2009 to dispose of and shut down WAI 1018 outcome.
All it has done is create more questions being put to Ngātiawa claimants by whānau and interested parties in Hutt Valley, Picton, Poneke, Kapiti Coast, Taranaki and Waikato. Highlighting the "financial indiscretions cover up" more than it needed to be. WAI 1018 has directed those asking questions to government written reports.
An action Te Atiawa ki Whakarongotai Charitable Trust, Marae, associated companies executives and Ngati Toa, Parata WAI 88, 2361, 1945 claimants chose to highlight themselves. Using a German Philosopher Karl Marx methodology to control minions (mokai/enslave). Marxism technique of belittling their opponents to enforce enslavement.
Their choice not ours, we are not responsible for their actions.
FYI: So many of you say you don't read this blog, yet many react to what is posted here, then driving to Taranaki on belittling missions - silly waste of money... Incidentally majority of viewers are on Kapiti Coast, Poneke and Taranaki.
