Waitangi Day Archive
The strength of Waitangi Day - by Catherine Delahunty
Waitangi commemoration and developing a sense of nationhood don’t happen without challenges and dissent. The strength of Waitangi Day is the opportunity we have to hold the politicians to account for their authority and performance in relation to Te Tiriti. I love going to Waitangi each year because it’s a beautiful place of contested history […] read moreFebruary 7, 2014 12:24 pm - No Comments
Keep Our Assets – inspired by Invercargill - by Catherine Delahunty
Downtown Invercargill may not be as heavily populated as downtown Auckland, or Wellington, but I have never met such a supportive and friendly group of random strangers. read moreFebruary 11, 2013 10:30 am - 19 Comments
Reflections on Waitangi Day - by Catherine Delahunty
Waitangi this year had many highlights overlooked by the media. Metiria, Kennedy, Denise, David, myself and other young Greens and local volunteers spent two days in the sun, meeting all kinds of people and listening to the flaxroots and grassroots voices of our nation. David Clendon spoke extremely well in the powhiri for the Greens […] read moreFebruary 7, 2013 11:23 am - 6 Comments
Te Tiriti o Waitangi and constitutional change - by Catherine Delahunty
In the two weeks leading up to Waitangi two public forums were held at Te Papa on Te Tiriti o Waitangi and constitutional change. They were excellent contributions to the national conversation, the first being lawyers Moana Jackson (Ngati Kahungungu and Ngati Porou) and Matthew Palmer. Both speakers had a deep understanding of the issues […] read moreFebruary 4, 2013 9:45 am - 27 Comments
Waitangi Day Speech to Kapiti - by Jan Logie
Sorry it’s a few days late, but as promised here is my speech from Waitangi Day: Tēnā koutou katoa, Toi te kupu. Toi te mana. Toi te whēnua. Ngāti Toa Rangatira, Te Ati Awa, Ngāti Raukawa, mē –tē hapū o Ngāti Haū-mia. Kiā ora koūtoū. E ngā iwi,- e ngā mana, – e ngā whānau […] read moreFebruary 8, 2012 9:57 pm - 1 Comment
On the ground in Waitangi - by Catherine Delahunty
I am always astonished by the contrast between the media reporting on Waitangi and the experience on the ground. This year was no exception. There has been a lot of media talk about Hone Harawira’s “State of the Maori Nation” speech. Actually, he was a member of a panel which included Metiria Turei and Parekura […] read moreFebruary 7, 2011 2:54 pm - 21 Comments
Reflections on Waitangi Day - by frog
There seems to me to be a change of tone, or tenor today compared to Waitangi days past. Lot’s of people are saying that it is a love fest between John Key and the Maori Party, but I think it goes deeper than that. Chris Trotter, in today’s DomPost but not online, suggests that it […] read moreFebruary 6, 2009 4:32 pm - 108 Comments
The London branch of New Zealand’s Green Party started their election year campaign in bold style over the weekend. A small but enthusiastic group of volunteers attended the famous Circle Line Pub Crawl wearing T-shirts with the slogan ‘I only date girls / boys who vote Green‘. The Circle line pub crawl is held on […] read moreFebruary 13, 2008 3:21 pm - 1 Comment
