PACIFIC FORUM NEWS – MAORI LEADERS SEEK SEAT ON PACIFIC FORUM COUNCIL’S SOUTH PACIFIC GOVERNANCE PANEL
Te Karere News reports: Maori Leaders are a part of the South Pacific leaders delegation meeting in the Cook Islands at the assembling of the Pacific Forum.
Four iwi leaders including Ngai Tahu’s Mark Solomon, Tainui’s Tukuroirangi Morgan and Ngati Porou’s Selwyn Parata descended onto the Cook Islands ahead of the Pacific Forum’s meet and greet. Te Arawa also sent a delegat. Polynesian heads of state see Maori as having a place on the Polynesian forum made up of countries like Cook Islands, Tahiti, Samoa and Niue. Excellent idea.
Of interest to most people in Asia-Pacific is Maori New Zealand citizens rising role of furthering both entrepreneurial economic development, fisheries and resources kaitikitanga (guardianship), sufficient marine surveillance measures and very importantly, providing valuable insights into culturally appropriate policy and trade agreements concerning Pasifika and Polynesian people of the South Pacific and Asia-Pacific.
If this happens all citizens of the South Pacific will win more fairly in trade deals, why I think this story is wise in protecting all New Zealand citizens and our Island dwelling friends and allied sovereign nations, our children and children’s children’s best interests with long term planning thinking beyond two generations.
Ngahuia Wade conducted the interview in a mix of English and Te Reo Rangatira (NZ’s timeless Language of Chiefs of the South Pacific). Scotty Morrison presents the story. Good stuff.
