Amendment 2 (AWCT) AGM September 2015 and 2012 Solictor Generals Report

Atiawa ki Whakarongotai Charitable Trust (AWCT) - AGM to be held at their offices in Elizabeth St, Waikanae.  

It is a good time to be reminded of what Cherly Gwyn Acting Solicitor General (ASG) stated in 2012.  

"8. This appears to have arisen out of a lack of understanding, on both sides, of the nature of a charitable trust and the obligations of the trustees. Rather, believe there was a lack of understanding of their obligations as trustees. This however is mirrored by on the part of Iwi members," written by ASG    -    (members duped!)
"A charitable trust different to a private trust in that a charitable trust has no beneficiaries."written by ASG
"While Iwi members will likely receive the benefit of the trust's charitable purposes," written by ASG (members have not benefited)
"do not have the same rights and entitlements as private beneficiaries, nor can expect the Trust Board to administer the trust in the same way that private trustees might." written by ASG 
HENCE THE BLATANT DECEIT MARIA GRACE BATTLED AGAINST WHEN THIS TRUST DEED WAS AMENDED IN 2002. Thank you Maria for your wisdom and opening our eyes RIP our dear cousin. We thank your brother RIP Tony Thomas for helping us write and activating us to file WAI 1018 in 2002. 
You were both RIGHT all of Iwi members Rights Stripped.  Yes, 13 years later, nothing has changed after 2 investigations and promises made to government officials by AWCT, broken.   
9. "relating to the holding of Trust Board meetings and the AGM.  I do note however there is nothing in the Trust Deed requiring the Board to hold their non-AGM meetings in public or allow Iwi members to attend."written by ASG.
The 2nd detailed report received in 2013 from the Chief Ombudsman is evidence in WAI 1018 Ngātiawa, Porirua-Manawatū Waitangi Tribunal Hearing.
The reason over 1000 Ngātiawa Iwi whanau from the Kapiti Coast will not trust this individual serving Fisheries Mandated Charitable Trust.

Scope Report Waitangi Tribunal Historian

August Hui arranged for Ngātiawa Tuturu WAI 1018 and 2228 to work on the historical scope report for Ngātiawa claimants.

Focusing on the whenua of Te Reretewhangawhanga his wife Kehu (Te-Whetu-o-te-ao) Te Rangitaake, Pirikawau his wife Te Kahutatara, Te Tupe o Tu, Hau Te Horo their brother Paihia, Eruini Te Marau his wife Ripo, Te Pukerangiora, Te Ahu Riwai, Te Heke, Hare te Mo, Paeroke Jenkins and several others.
Ngati Kura, Otaraua, Hinetua, Uenuku, Rahiri, Pukerangiora, Puketapu, the hapū of Ngātiawa Rebels almost forced into extinction by legislation and the Maori Friendly's Ordinance.  
Ngātiawa Iwi is not part of the A.R.T Raukawa, Ngati Toa and Ati Awa Confederation that has enabled Toa and Raukawa to erode Ngātiawa 1834 and 1839 whenua boundaries.  Due to the recent presentation given by Raukawa at June 2015 Judicial Conference.  We have agreed not to get obsorbed into another Raukawa version of who we are as a people. 
 We are not a Raukawa Hapū and have no partnership agreement with Te Hono Claimants.  
We assert the right to own our collective Hapū name Ngātiawa Iwi. 
To the numerous immediate whanau who have been receiving internal whanau updates via social media private groups, registration will be available in the next week. Thank you for your patience.

Iwi Mandate at Risk through No Communications with Claimants

Will Minister of Treaty Claims Spend $3, Million? 

To support a the fisheries mandated Ati Awa ki Whakarongotai Charitable Trust (AWCT) which has had "No Beneficiaries" since 2002.  
Minister for Treaty of Waitangi Negotiations Chris Finlayson says, "Mandate holders Tuhoronuku are at odds with a group of hapu based in Hokianga, and Mr Finlayson says the money could be spent to help their people." 
"Its a lot of money.  People need to get off their high horses, get personalities to one side and act in the interests of the Iwi for once."
That does not apply to any registered member of AWTC Iwi, or non-registered as the trust has "No Beneficiaries."
 "Ngapuhi negotiators need to keep  communication with the whole iwi, and if they don't, their mandate could be taken away."
The questionable fisheries mandate is just that! 
"Mr Finlayson says neither the budget nor his patience, are limitless." Full Article below click on link
Finlaysons Patience-Running-out-on-Treaty-Settlement
If the AWCT attempts to have an AGM and change their Trust Deed they are 13 years to late and can never be trusted.  "You can fool some of the people some of the time, but not all of the people all of the time."  Only a fool would trust any Iwi charitable trust who operated with "No Beneficiaries" for 13 years.  Never forget the last lot of cash went into one company directors sole bank account.    
The drive to do a sneaky back door Direct Negotiations with Office of Treaty Settlements. Without notifying or informing all of the Treaty claimants.  Confirmed by OTS on the 30 June 2015.  Direct Negotiation attempts began a couple of years ago according to emails obtained from OTS under the Official Information Act.   Directors from the Ati Awa Asset Holding companies names were on these emails.   
AWCT and one side of the Parata WAI 88 tried to setup OTS to breach all claimants rights under the Treaty of Waitangi signed by our Ngātiawa Tupuna at our Ngati Kura and Otaraua original Marae on the North and South side of Waikanae River in 1840.  Also, pushing OTS to breach the principles and legistlations that govern the entire Waitangi Tribunal and OTS Hearings and settlement process. 
Their recent behaviour clearly indicates they will NOT accept any Ngātiawa who's parents were registered as Ngatiawa on their post and pre-1918 birth certificates.  WAI 1018 will not change the Iwi name on their parents birth certificates.  
To satisfy the 1990 Te Ati Awa ki Whakarongotai Trust an entity created for Ngati Toa, Raukawa and Te Ati Awa Whakarongotai Marae. 
To continue to govern over tuturu Ngātiawa originals and extinguish their existence, on the Kapiti Coast.  As Raukawa are attempting as heard in Te Hono Raukawa claims presentation at JC 30 June 2015.  Along with KCDC Whakameinga Komiti eroding our boundaries, letting Ngati Toa and Raukawa take our lands.  
It is also time to acknowledge the Art Raukawa Toa (ART) conferedation was set up by Mr Kakakura Stubbs (his Great-Grandmother Ngati Mutunga,  father an Americian Whaler -Grandfather Ngati Toa) alias Wi Parata.  As he stole our lands (Ngarara NLC Case), was an MP and could afford to buy horses.  He wanted to be part of the Otaki Horse Racing Club.  Ironically he died falling of a horse.  
 Ngarara NLC court was moved from Otaki to Wellington due to the intimidation tactics used by Mr Stubbs and his Ngati Raukawa and Toa whanau.  
Raukawa, Toa and those with a smidgen of Te Ati Awaness, practice the same behaviour in Judicial Conferences and Nga Korero Toku Iho hui. As they have with OTS.
 History repeating itself, our Tupuna did not accept that behaviour in 1891 nor do their mokopuna in 2015, 124 years later.

Judicial Conference 30 Jun 2015

Mandated Muaupoko Tribal Counsel (MTC) and Direct Negotiations

A debate occurred between Waitangi Tribunal Judicial Conference (JC) - Adjudicators Judge Carin Fox and Honourable Sir Doug Kidd and Office of Treaty Settlements (OTS) Crown Counsel.  Regarding direct negotiations excluding the majority of Muaupoko claimants present.  Undermining the Waitangi Tribunal process.
OTS Crown Counsel has been asked this question by the JC Adjudicators; "will the Crown issue a statement confirming the Crown will not resume direct negotiations with MTA until all of the claims in Porirua ki Manawatū district inquiry have been heard and reported on?The answer is expected by 27 July 2015.  
OTS Counsel was notified Ngātiawa ki Kapiti Coast claimants have the same issue.  OTS Counsel replied to WAI 1018 "with the Te Atiawa out there trying to go into direct negotiations."  WAI 1018 informed OTS Counsel Atiawa ki Whakarongotai Charitable Trust has "NO BENEFICIARIES" according to their trust deed and the 2012 Solicitor Generals report.  It's been like that since 2002.  He was astounded. 
There currently is a joke going around Atiawa ki Whakarongotai Charitable Trust (AWCT), its company directors and members, and NZTA expressway employees that they will "let WAI 1018 do all the work and then AWCT will come in and take the credit and take over direct negoiations" to rip Ngātiawa tuturu of again.  
 We will watch and see what the JC Adjudicators and OTS Crown Counsel, registered Ngātiawa Iwi Charitable Trust whanau and our Barristers do with that manipulative-abusive and dishonourable behaviour.  The Crown will be held responsible should they let that theft occur again.

Raukawa and Te Ati Awa Team

No, Te Ati Awa WAI claims are identified in this document, advocated by Te Hono ki Raukawa, referred to as the Raukawa and Ati Awa Team. 

 Raukawa and Te Ati Awa Research Plan  click on link

Ngati Kauwhata stated today 22/06/2015 they were not part of the Raukawa Confederation, in a document filed to tribunal office.  
As Ngātiawa ki Kapiti te Taku Tai is not part of the A.R.T Confederation. 
This statement written in a report on the Atiawa ki Whakarongotai Charitable Trust states very clearly why we are not. 
Written in Solicitor Generals 2012 Report:
It is stated, Damian Parata, Denise Parata. Tutere Parata, Daniel Mullen, Jack Rikihana, Bill Carter, "were all naïve."  In formulating the Atiawa ki Whakarongotai Charitable Trust “Trust Deed.”  
"They were incompetent, had no understanding, experience or business skills to invest into any business scheme." 
Furthermore, according to the Solicitor General, the trustees “did not have a sufficient understanding of the role of trustees of a charitable trust where there are no direct beneficiaries.” 
“charitable trust where there are no direct beneficiaries"  
All the same people with a couple of add on's control this trust today.   No changes have been made to constitution.

Otaraua Park Amended

Otaraua Hapu ki Kapiti and Otaraua ki Taranaki

Positive discussion's were held with Otaraua representative David Doorbar of Taranaki in regards to our Otaraua collective hapū this week.  
We agreed unanimously that the name Ngātiawa Iwi claimants WAI 1018 - stated to Kapiti Coast District Council prior to the naming of Otaraua Park was the correct name to be used.  As recorded in a meeting with KCDC with four people present, prior to receiving a call from adversaries a month later agreeing on Otaraua Park as the name. 
David Doorbar has been advocating to reinstate our Otaraua Hapū, original Ngātiawa Iwi name with WAI 1018 since 2009.

WAI 88 & 89 Parata and Ngati Toa - Nga Korero Tuku Iho (NKTI)

Te Atiawa ki Whakarongotai Marae - 22 April, 2015

Let it be known this NKTI was totally about the Parata Whanau, Te Rauparaha and Ngati Toa.  Ngātiawa mentioned occasionally as an afterthought. 
Several speakers were silenced by Judge Carin Fox, due to the fact Barrister Moana Sinclair did not prepare her clients.  As to the process and guidelines for a NKTI.  
Ngātiawa WAI 1018 did not attend NKTI, however three of our barristers did attend on our behalf.  With text updates and phone calls throughout the day to their clients.  
However, our Ngātiawa whanau did us proud they were all the cooks in the kitchen and waiting on the tables.  They fed the tribunal, guests and Ngati Toa well.  As they have done for over 100 years in Waikanae.  With dignity, they stayed silent and observed.  The Chief Chef in the kitchen is a trustee for Ngātiawa Iwi Trust - and honors her mother's whakapapa.
While enduring extreme Lateral Violence by organiser's, Parata's and Ngati Toa-ness Iwi.  One 73 year-old Ngātiawa Kuia had to step back to stop being hit during the hongi, with the Judge standing beside her, another Parata threaten a wahine with a patu.
Ngātiawa WAI 1018 claimants will not allow government to forces us to attend hui and continue to be subjected to and endure lateral violence.  That breaches the NZ Bill of Rights Act.
This behaviour from Parata's and Ngati Toa-ness whānau has been practiced since 1860's - 155 years of thuggery from the Maori Politicians whānau and their supporters.  Observed in all its glory in 2015 by the Waitangi Tribunal, Office of Treaty Settlements staff, barristers and visitors - they shamed themselves. As they spoke about their fears, to the Waitangi Tribunal and asserted lateral violence.   
Ngātiawa WAI 1018 tuturu - Nga Atua me Nga Tupuna rule at the end of the day.  Blessed we are and thanks we give.  
 Ngātiawa Iwi Trust-Trustees manage WAI 1018, 609, 608 and 238 with Ngātiawa ki Waitara WAI 2228 specifically for displaced whanau in Ngātiawa who do not have dual Māori Whakapapa.  
However, Ngātiawa will never leave out the mokopuna with dual whakapapa.  Who ACCEPT LATERAL VIOLENCE will not be tolerated from those with dual whakapapa.
