Treaty of Waitangi commemorations in the Bay of Islands have ended with raised expectations about what Māori can expect from the Labour-led Government.


The chair of Ngāpuhi's mandated claim negotiating body believes Sunday's meetings with Treaty Negotiations Minister Andrew Little will lead to a fresh start for talks.


Without He Whakaputanga, there might have been no Treaty of Waitangi

He Whakaputanga o te Rangatiratanga o Nu Tireni was debated, agreed upon, and ultimately signed by thirty-four rangatira at Waitangi, in the Bay of Islands, on 28 October 1835, and later by a further eighteen chiefs from the north and elsewhere, through until 22 July 1839.


Unique raranga for Mangungu commemoration

With commemorations at Waitangi over for the year, the focus in the north now shifts to Hokianga.


Estimated yearly toursim earnings of $1.1b in Northland

Northland's estimated yearly tourism spend has increased by 7 per cent to $1.1 billion with both international and domestic spending up.

Changes afoot for digital funding

The Government is thinking about broadening what it wants to do with the Ka Hao Māori Digital Technology Fund.
