to Matike Mai
There’s no good reason for any of us to be applauding the way power is shared in Aotearoa — especially in view of what was agreed at Waitangi in 1840, and especially given how so many Māori have fared since then.
Fortunately, the injustice, unfairness and inefficiencies have been a frequent focus for some of our leaders including leading thinkers, most notably Moana Jackson and Margaret Mutu.
That focus has been particularly powerful and clear-sighted since an independent Māori group delivered its Matike Mai report on constitutional transformation in 2016, which they’ve followed up with more discussions since then.
