Kia ora Whanau, just to reiterate on one of my postings in regards to the distaste for Maori Reservations. Hmmm! It appears I had got my facts wrong. Ouch!
I thought that a reservation was set aside for ducks, kiwi's, tui's etc? I find nothing wrong with that but according to Te Ture Whenua Act it can also be set aside for:
A Maori reservation can be established and used for a variety of purposes, such as: Village site; marae; sports ground; place of historical, cultural or scenic interest; building site; church site; urupa; papakainga; kaumatua flats or meeting place; pa site. For a full list see section 338(2) of Te Ture Whenua Maori Act 1993.
The people who benefit from the reservation are usually named as members of a hapu, or several hapu, or can be any group of Maori. My sincerely apologies for getting it WRONG!
Deepest apologies whanau!
Ma te waa,
Ko Ira tenei.
