their own electorate seats - Brash
Dr Brash, who also led the ACT Party for a short time and currently spokesperson for lobby group Hobson's Pledge, says the controversial He Puapua document is "dangerous for our future" by forcing Kiwis to "choose between their Māori ancestors".
"Every single person who identifies as Māori in this country also has Pākehā ancestors," he told The AM Show on Thursday.
He Puapua is a report written by the Government's Declaration Working Group, but not Government policy. It's essentially a bunch of ideas on how the Government can fulfill its obligations under the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, which the National-led Government signed New Zealand up to in 2010.
