Waitangi, 28th October 2011

You can meet Maori sovereignty experts and rangatira from around the country, who can help you address concerns about the Food Bill, by visiting Te Tii Marae Grounds, Waitangi, on 27th-29th October. The Declaration of Independence (1835) anniversary meetings happen on those days.

A good idea would be to have someone from your local community or extended family attend the Marae discussions and make a presentation of your concerns – and ask for help in addressing them.

When you arrive, state your family name and the fact that you are there to represent the interests of your extended family (your hapu) and to address the rangatira on the issue of the country’s food supply.

This is a sociable event, with full catering services and accommodation provision (camping, marae sleeping) for hapu / families from all around the country. Take whatever koha you can.

The Te Tii Marae Grounds are on the beachfront on the Paihia (south) side of the bridge to the Waitangi Reserve. It is not the marae site in the reserve where the Crown raises its flag. The Grounds are located between Te Kemara Ave and Te Karuwha Parade, where the roads meet – just up the road from Paihia.

    Awesome, like this korero. Is there another way to disengage this bill as well like fill in a template letter and send it off to our local MPs.

    • Glad you like it. Actually, we don’t think there is another way. Not via Parliament at least. You only need to read the Parliamentary Oath to realise this. We elect Parliamentarians, and the first thing they do before going into the house is swear to work for someone else. They don’t even try to hide it.

      Here is their Oath:
      Oath of allegiance
      “I, [name], swear that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second, Her heirs and successors, according to law. So help me God.”

      • We’ll qualify that. They have to do it according to LAW. Law – Common Law, Natural Law, God’s Law – is all above ‘legislation’. Parliamentarians can be put on their Oath en masse after being serve notice of the law of this land – founding document He Whakaputanga. Thereafter they can be made subject to it. A Lower House with an Upper House with power of veto that is constituted by elders / kaumatua from hapu groups of ALL COLOURS around the country. The upper house being founded upon tikanga, traditional practices that have seen humanity survive in the past and will do so in the future. It’s obvious western society is failing / being failed on purpose. Tikanga is the only solution for the lines that will continue.

    Man I am so freaking glad I have found this website!

    I am a kiwi living in australia ( I know )

    But I am dabbling in a bit of sovreignty over here! and I am so happy to see that it is going on back home as well!

    For the record I am not full maori, I am only “1/8th” maori, but I do not think that makes any difference personally, since only a drop of maori blood is needed to embody the spirit of the people it represents!

    And the truth is we can all be sovreign regardless of our race or creed, so long as we live in harmony with ourselves, nature and each other…I think that is the purpose behind it, in law at least.

    Other than that it’s just plain common sense!!!

    Keep up the good work!
