Environment on the table in Waitangi

conversation tent

From hapū ownership and representation, to forestry and ancestral stories, experts across te ao Māori called on the Crown to listen as they discussed the environment at Te Tii Marae.

The Te Taiao panel convened in the conversation tent at Waitangi on Saturday to challenge Minister Kiritapu Allan and the Crown on the health of the environment and climate.

Panellist and lawyer Annette Sykes questioned the transparency of the kōrero out of Parliament and the Government’s commitment to upholding its obligations to Te Tiriti o Waitangi.

Sykes, a lawyer whose career has focused on the rights of Māori, called on the kawanatanga (government) to stop using co-governance as a mask for the real issues of rights.
