All powhiri are followed by a cuppa and meet'n'greet. Te Tiriti O Waitangi Marae Board has a strict policy of no dogs, no drugs, no gang insignia, no alcohol and marked smoking areas. The programme is subject to change. NgaPuhi set for claims hearings NgaPuhi hapu WAI claims hearings are supposed to start in March. ''It is imperative therefore, that in line with the customary and proprietary rights we as hapu are claiming, that our protocols of powhiri be upheld and that the mana of our manuhiri tuarangi be respected on the marae, which is a national and international icon sited on the birthplace of this nation,'' Te Tiriti O Waitangi marae kaitakawaenga Merehora Taurua says. ''Ngati Rahiri Ngati Kawa are as aware as any other citizen of Aotearoa New Zealand, Maori and Pakeha alike, that it is this government's responsibility to respond to the concerns of their voting public, and to facilitate the politics away from the marae atea a forum tent is proposed to be located on the tou rangatira -- the spot where our NgaPuhi chiefs signed He Whakaputanga O Nga Rangatiratanga O Nga Hapu Nu Tireni on October 28, 1835 [the Declaration of Independence].'' Invitations to participate have been extended to Mr Key and his ministers and various other Maori politicians and iwi leaders. Ms Taurua says the Maori version of the treaty of Waitang 1840 was a covenant of partnership. ''And in our Maori terms, 'partnership' includes whakawhanau- ngatanga [extended family bonding] between ourselves as hapu NgaPuhi based on manaakitanga [hospitality and kindness] and whakaute [respect] for each other on our marae, regardless of cultural, social or political differences. ''There is no other marae in this country where people of another hapu or iwi would get away with performing the way they do on Te Tiriti O Waitangi marae every year and Ngati Rahiri Ngati Kawa must accept that we also have a responsibility. That is to manage and implement tikanga a lot better than we have in the past. But that can only happen through whakawhanau- ngatanga.''
