Tena koe e hika.
Nga mihi nui o te tau hou ki a koe.
He patai taku.
We are often told Maori Land can only be left to descendants of the deceased, and that that is the good of Maori Land, that it is passed from generation to generation. However, it has come to my notice, that it can actually be left to anyone, that the family members consider a whangai of the deceased, which is very puzzling, even if that person is not Maori. The Maori Land Court only need to ask a couple of questions, and that person is through on the land. I doubt whether those who fought for Maori rights, would consider this appropriate. Your thoughts, or maybe advice.
