From the desk of the Minister of Mäori AffairsTënä koutou katoa e ngä iwi, i tënei tau hou.Ko te wä nui o te tau mö te whakawhanaungatanga, ko ngä rä whakatä ote Kirihimete. Ko te tümanako, kua rongo koutou i ngä painga o te nohohei whänau. Kua tangi koutou ki ö koutou mate o te tau; kua whiriwhirikoutou i ngä take o te wä, kua täkaro tahi, otirä kua whakapakari koutoui a koutou, kia kaha ake ai mö te tau hou.Whakawhanaungatanga, the theme of this edition of Kökiri, isabout building and strengthening a sense of family among a groupof individuals. During the Christmas holidays most of us will haveexperienced that reality and felt the benefits. Families give their membersstrength, if everyone works at the relationships.The Treaty of Waitangi was also about whakawhanaungatanga. There wasno way, in 1840, that Mäori would invite Päkehä to settle in Aotearoawithout expecting whanaungatanga to develop.It’s taken a while, but Treaty settlements are helping to restore thevision of our tïpuna. The investigation of history, the acknowledgementof past injustice and an apology by the Crown, help to restore positiverelationships with iwi as a platform for working together (see KaupapaMatua p23-25).We have seen that what’s good for Mäori is good for New Zealand, as iwiinvest in their local and regional economies to create wealth and jobs;provide health, education and social services; and participate in localgovernment.As iwi regain control over their cultural, social and economic destiny,they are starting to work with the Crown on business and developmentprojects overseas.Here we see the distinctive cultural contribution that Mäori bring – notjust indigenous branding like the haka, but traditional ways of buildingrelationships with others: whakawhanaungatanga.What’s good for Mäori business is good for New Zealand Inc, so this cooperationand whanaungatanga between iwi and the Crown benefits allNew Zealanders.Nö reira kia kaha te mahi tahi – work hard at working together!Kia ora,Hon Dr Pita R Sharples,Minister of Mäori Affairs.Kökiri is published bi-monthly byTe Puni Kökiri (The Ministry ofMäori Development).

Not winning a placeon election night, but replacing other listMPs who retired during the term.Winning a seat this time must sit well withthe very competitive former Silver Fern andBlack Fern. Louisa was selected for the SilverFerns when she was just 17 in 1989, andremained in the team until 1992 attainingthe vice captaincy along the way.She went on to represent the country inrugby, and was part of the Black Ferns teamthat won the World Championship in 1998.Other Mäori women who have won generalseats in the New Zealand Parliament includeSandra Lee, Jill Pettis and Paula Bennett.Sandra Lee won the Auckland Central seatfor the Alliance Party in 1993; Jill Pettiswon the Whanganui seat for Labour at thesame election.Paula Bennett first came into Parliamenton the National Party list in 2005; she hadunsuccessfully contested the Waitäkere seatthat year.

Te Ao MäoriHave your say for our tamarikiNorm Hewitt.As I write this another childhas died an horrific death inour back yard along with manyothers over the years: JamesWhakaruru, Coral Burrows,Serenity Jay Scott, the Kähuitwins to name but a few.I continue to ask myself thequestions I am sure many ofus have asked. Why is thishappening? What can I do aboutit? Can I do anything? And so on.I believe our tamariki are ourfuture and we have to changewhat we are doing if every childis to thrive, belong and achieve.That’s why I agreed to be part ofa team to champion the GreenPaper for Vulnerable Children.The Green Paper aims to startthe conversation. It’s not tellingus what to do – nothing isdecided yet. A children’s actionplan will be developed based onsubmissions gathered by the endof February 2012.What do YOU think needs tohappen?I urge every one of you tohave your say on this. TheGovernment wants to hear fromyou – parents, grandparents,neighbours, aunties, uncles,young and old alike.You don’t have to be an expertto be part of the conversation.No submission is too small tobe considered. It can be a fewsentences or a collection ofcomments.Get around the kitchen table withyour whanau and have a chat.Talk to your neighbours and putyour thoughts in an email. Askyour children what they think.What can we do bettercollectively?What do you need fromGovernment?Should we spend less on theelderly and more on children?Who is responsible for givingchildren the best chance in life?What works best for vulnerablechildren and their families?I’d also like to hear your ideason how we can work betterwith Government departmentsin partnership and remove the‘we know best what you need’approach?The numbers of children in NewZealand who can’t thrive, belongand achieve is getting biggerand the challenges they face aregetting more challenging.If people are happy with howthings are today then they willstay the way they are. If wewant to do better we all need tospeak up about it.Kia Kaha.Have your say at:www.childrensactionplan.govt.nzwww.facebook.com/greenpapernzwww.twitter.com/greenpapernzParliament at a glanceThe National Party received the biggest shareof the votes on election night last year andwon the most number of seats. Nationalreceived 47% of the votes cast and 59 seats.Labour received 27% and 34 seats.The Greens received 11% of the vote givingthem 14 seats.New Zealand First received 7% of the voteand 8 seats.The Mäori Party received about 1 and a halfpercent of the vote, and won 3 electorateseats. Because they won more seats thantheir share of the party vote, what is calledan ‘over-hang’ has been created, andtherefore the New Zealand Parliament willbe made up of 121 MPs not 120.The Mana Party received about 1% of theparty vote which wasn’t enough to give it anymore MPs over and above party leader HoneHarawira who won the Tai Tokerau seat.The ACT Party is in the same positionwinning about 1% of the vote andrepresented in Parliament by John Bankswho won the Epsom seat.The United Future Party received less than1% of the party vote but is represented inParliament by party leader Peter Dunne whowon the Ohariu seat.Prime Minister John Key was able to form agovernment with his 59 MPs, and supportagreements with the ACT, United Future andthe Mäori parties.Labour, the Greens, New Zealand First andthe Mana Party form the opposition.T E P U N I K ö K I R I | K ö K I R I | H u i - t a n g u r u — P o u t ü - t e - r a n g i 2 0 1 27

Whänau OraNational-MäoriParty AccordThe Government is renewing its supportfor the evolving focus and ongoingimplementation of the Whänau Oraapproach.Three key commitments are outlined in aRelationship Accord negotiated betweenthe National-led administration and theMäori Party:• A specific annual Whänau Oraappropriation will be developed toimprove the reach, capability andeffectiveness of Whänau Ora.• The Government and the MäoriParty will actively work towardsthe establishment of a standalonecommissioning agency over the next 12months.• Whänau Ora will increasingly bringa greater focus on addressing theissues of employment, housing andeducational achievement as wellas supporting the most vulnerablewhänau, including those on lowincomes.Hon Tariana Turia, who has beenreappointed as Minister for WhänauOra, says these are important measureswhich they will closely focus on in theirdetermination to improve the lives of allNew Zealanders.“Whänau Ora is about enabling ourfamilies to dream the dream, to bringtogether the resources that can createtheir own opportunity to grow.“It is not a soft option. Trusting peopleto find solutions for their own lives takestime – it is about dismantling the reliancethat we have placed on providers andgovernment departments to find newways of believing in ourselves.”“Whänau potential is high and readyto be unleashed; Whänau Ora providernetworks are extensive, committed,innovative and ready to learn fromeach other; and Whänau Ora is alreadyanchored on solid foundations that willbring fresh opportunities and gains forwhänau in the decade ahead.”Professor Sir Mason Durie – WhänauOra Governance Group Chair.Te Puni Kökiri works closely with the Ministry of Social Development and the Ministryof Health to support the Governance Group to implement Whänau Ora – an inclusiveapproach to providing services and opportunities to all New Zealand families in need.• Twenty-five provider collectives have completed Programmes of Action that outlinekey steps they will undertake to transform from individual to whänau-centred servicesas part of the Whänau Ora approach. All submitted Programmes of Action have beenconsidered by the Governance Group.• The Governance Group has now approved core capability and capacity investmentpackages to support the change management plans for 18 of the 25 providers. Thisforms the most significant investments in Whänau Ora to date – with multi-yearfunding involved – and the contracting of these is underway.• Central to the development of more holistic service delivery to whänau has been thework to progress integrated contracts. This has gathered considerable momentum overthe last 10 months with increasing support from some District Health Boards as keyfunders and contract holders for the providers.• By October 2011, 15 Whänau Ora providers had entered into integrated contracts and afurther 20 are under development. The Ministry for Social Development will continue tosupport other government agencies and providers to further integrate contracts.• The Whänau Ora navigator model – supported by funding administered by Te Puni Kökiri– enables on-going training for frontline provider collective staff to ensure they are wellpositioned to engage with and take a leading role in better outcomes for whänau.• Almost all the provider collectives in the first wave have developed an approach basedon a whänau navigator model. Each of these navigators is designed to work with at least20 whänau at a time. Additionally, provider collectives have been engaged in whänauplanning and implementing whänau plans.• All eight of the developing collectives have received resourcing to support theirdevelopment. Two of the eight collectives under development – in South Waikato andKaipara – have been approved by the Governance Group to progress to Programmes ofAction. It is anticipated that all eight will have commenced this by April 2012.T E P U N I K ö K I R I | K ö K I R I | H u i - t a n g u r u — P o u t ü - t e - r a n g i 2 0 1 211

Te Ao MäoriNew BeginningsAlthough he’s still in his early thirties, Jamie Tuuta has packed a lotinto his life and has had some significant governance roles in somemajor Mäori organisations, like chairing the major Taranaki Parininihiki Waitotara Incorporation.In keeping with his Taranaki roots and whakapapa he has also chairedthe Ngäti Mutunga O Wharekauri Iwi Asset Holding Company.When the Minister of Mäori Affairs announced the appointment inMay last year he said, “Jamie Tuuta is an outstanding example of thenew generation of Mäori leaders.”The new Trustee took over in August and is very up beat about hisjob. He began cautiously, reviewing all the chores that the Trusteehas to undertake and looking at ways they might be able to improvetheir services to Mäori landowners.He believes many Mäori simply don’t know what the Trusteeundertakes. Currently the office manages about 100 000 hectaresof land on behalf of the owners, the land is in about 2000 blocks,they have 130 000 client accounts and hold 65 million dollars ofclient funds.He says for too long the Mäori Trustee has been the last resort whenlandowners go looking for help to administers their properties andhe wants to turn that around so that the Trustee is who strugglinglandowners think of first for help and advice.Under the legislation the Mäori Trustee is a sole trustee, andalthough he isn’t strictly required to Jamie has appointed an advisoryboard to help him with his work.His appointment is for five years.The new Mäori Trustee – Jamie Tuuta – has been quietly settling intohis new role, but already his arrival indicates a new beginning for theorganisation, which has been around since the 1920s.At 34 he’s certainly the youngest person to hold the job, which inthe past used to be part of the public service and allocated to apublic servant.The previous Trustee – John Paki – who held the role for someyears led the transition that saw the office set up as a standalone organisation with its own building and outside of the publicservice. Having its own head office building has allowed the Trusteeto gather other Mäori organisations around it in the building inWakefield street in Wellington; Mäori Tourism and the Federation ofMäori Authorities have moved in.T E P U N I K ö K I R I | K ö K I R I | H u i - t a n g u r u — P o u t ü - t e - r a n g i 2 0 1 221

It’s saddeningthat getting to this point has taken so long and many of ourkaumätua are no longer with us, unable to witness this occasion.However, this journey has provided opportunities to connect andre-connect with whänau - new faces and old which essentially, is theheart of our story”.Minister Sharples and Te whänau a Mokomoko Leadership Group Chair Tuiringa'Manny' Mokomoko sign the Agreement to Introduce Legislation to Give StatutoryRecognition to the Mokomoko Pardon.Two weeks after the signing, on 12 October 2011, the MokomokoPardon (Restoration of Character, Mana and Reputation) Bill wasintroduced into the House.The Bill is an important part of the healing process for Te whänaua Mokomoko, as the pardon he received will now be recognised instatute.The Crown, through the Bill, has expressed its regret for the sufferingof the whänau, and has expressly sought to restore his character,mana and reputation.Te Puni Kökiri’s Policy wähanga and Te Moana ä Toi regional officeworked closely with the leadership group to negotiate the terms ofthe agreement, and assist them through an endorsement processwith the wider whänau.Te whänau a Mokomoko and Mäori Affairs Minister Hon Dr Pita Sharples celebratethe signing of the agreement at Waiaua Marae.T E P U N I K ö K I R I | K ö K I R I | H u i - t a n g u r u — P o u t ü - t e - r a n g i 2 0 1 223

Te ao mäoriA senseoffreedomAs Georgina te Heuheu watchedthe election results coming outlast November a feeling cameover her that many of us mightfind a bit strange. “I felt like Iwas getting my freedom back,”she said.With the election on 26November 2011 the HonGeorgina te Heuheu was comingto the end of fifteen years ofservice in the New ZealandParliament, six of them inNational governments in whichshe held a number of portfolios.Georgina Manunui was borninto a family of eight childrenand grew up at Taurewa, a tinyvillage on the main road justnorth of Chateau Tongariro. “Iwas number six in the line up.”Today Taurewa’s better knownfor the presence of the SirEdmund Hillary Outdoor PursuitsCentre, but back then thevillagers livelihood came fromthe local timber mill and theforest where native trees werefelled and then milled.As she grew up with themajestic central north islandmountains as her backdrop didshe ever dream or think that oneday she would be a Member ofParliament and a Minister? “No Inever did, never.”“Education was the push backthen, and my parents wanted allof us children to get a good startin life.” Georgina was packedoff to Turakina Girls’ Collegejust south of Whanganui. Theheadmistress felt Georgina hadpotential and after three yearssuggested to her parents thatshe could make arrangementsfor their daughter to transfer toAuckland Girls’ Grammar, andthings took off from there.The next stop was VictoriaUniversity where she firstgained a BA in English, then KenHingston, later Judge Hingston,suggested Ms Manunui shouldstudy law and that’s when aseries of firsts began.She was the first Mäori womanto gain a law degree and beadmitted to the bar. She sat ona Commission of Inquiry andwas a member of the WaitangiTribunal, and then one dayher father-in-law, Sir Hepi teHeuheu the Paramount Chiefof Ngäti Tüwharetoa, calledGeorgina, her husband Timi andhis older brother Tumu together.“Dad told us that one of usneeded to stand for Parliament.”The te Heuheu whänau wereNational supporters andthe Chief had been trying,unsuccessfully, to get one of hispeople elected to Parliament.Georgina got the task, MMP wasupon us and in 1996 she becamethe first Mäori woman electedas a National Party MP, on theNational list.The first woman chair of theMäori Affairs Select Committeefollowed, and then the firstMäori woman National CabinetMinister, she was only the secondMäori woman to be a ministerafter the Hon Whetu MäramaTirikatene-Sullivan, who was in aprevious Labour Cabinet.Labour won the 1999 electionand after three good years ingovernment Georgina foundherself in opposition for the nextnine years, and didn’t enjoy it.Along the way there was hervery public spat with the thenleader of the National Party DonBrash, over the speech he madeto the Orewa Rotary Club.Georgina was demoted byBrash and removed from herGeorgina with her sonsManunui (L) and Tuirirangi (R).spokesperson role. But afterNational lost the next electionBrash was gone, and withNational back in power in 2008Georgina was back in Cabinetagain.In her first term in governmentGeorgina was Minister forCourts, Minister of Women’sAffairs, Associate Minister inCharge of Treaty of WaitangiNegotiations and AssociateMinister of Health.When National came back intopower in 2008 she returned asMinister for Courts, and gainedother roles as Minister of PacificIsland Affairs, Minister forDisarmament and Arms Control,and Associate Minister of MäoriAffairs.Now that her busy life as apolitician has ended, is shelooking forward to relaxing? “No,I actually find it hard to relax,and there’s plenty of work athome that needs attending to.”36T E P U N I K ö K I R I | K ö K I R I | H u i - t a n g u r u — P o u t ü - t e - r a n g i 2 0 1 2

Policy wähangaMäori, Young and in DemandTe Puni Kökiri commissioned researchsuggests there may be a window ofopportunity for Mäori economic futures as aresult of demographic trends being forecast.The research, released in the report Mäori:Demographic Dividend for Economic Return,says that the Mäori population’s youthfulness,following a wave of retiring New Zealand babyboomers, will become vital in creating NewZealand’s workforce of the future.At the heart of this possibility is the conceptof the demographic dividend; a period duringdemographic change which exposes thepotential for an economic dividend or bonus.Differences in the timing and speed ofdemographic change between Mäori andEuropean populations have led to verydifferent age structures.In 2006, half of the Mäori population was agedless than 23 years. By comparison, the halfwaypoint for the European population was 38 years.As a result, Mäori account for a significantlylarger proportion of those aged 0-19 years(21%) than they do of the total population(14%). By comparison, Mäori account for only 1in 20 of those at 65+ years of age.Figure 1: Age-sex structure by major ethnic group* (2011 on 2006 Base)AgeAge90+80-8470-7460-6450-5440-4430-3420-2410-140-490+80-8470-7460-6450-5440-4430-3420-2410-140-4Maori8.06 .0 4.02 .0 0.02 .0 4.06 .0 8.0Percentage at each ageThe report also points out the demographictrend of the baby boomer phenomenon whichsees them entering retirement en masse thisyear and asks “who will be there to replacethem?” The future labour market, therefore,will be tighter than it is now with a muchhigher proportion of retirees to those working.The historical coincidence of a youthfulMäori population alongside a significantlyolder European one reveals the potentialwindow of opportunity for Mäori who willmake up a much larger proportion of theworking age group. The young will be in evershorter supply and ever-greater demand inthe labour market of the future.However, the report cautions that thispotential can only be realised if there hasbeen sufficient investment in social capital,especially education, and facilitated by anappropriate policy environment.The full report, written by Professor NatalieJackson for NZIER, can be downloaded at TePuni Kökiri’s website: www.tpk.govt.nz/en/in-print/our-publications/90+80-8470-7460-6450-5440-4430-3420-2410-140-4European / New Zealander / OtherMales Females90+80-84 Males Females70-7460-6450-5440-4430-3420-2410-140-48.06 .0 4.0 2.0 0.0 2.0 4.06 .0 8.0Percentage at each ageMalesFemales*Based on multiple count ethnicity (Series 6 - see Appendix B)AgeAge8.0 6.0 4.0 2.0 0.0 2.0 4.0 6.0 8.0Percentage at each ageMalesAsianFemales8.06 .0 4.02 .0 0.02 .0 4.06 .0 8.0Percentage at each ageDemographicDividendThe ‘demographic dividend’ is sometimesalso referred to as the demographic‘bonus’ or ‘gift’. It refers to a periodduring demographic transition (the shiftfrom high to low mortality and fertilitylevels), which is looked at in economicterms because it has the potential toconvert into an economic dividend.The first potential dividend takes placeas fertility levels fall and the proportionat the youngest ages (0-14 years)reduces. At the same time, the workingage population (15-64 years) increases.During this period – which may last twoto three decades – there is potentialfor significant economic gain. But itcan be realised only if employmentopportunities expand as rapidly as thenumber of persons seeking new jobsand there is proactive investment inhuman capital, especially education.The second dividend begins – orhas the potential to begin - whenworking age adults are reaching theend of their income-generating andchildbearing years. During this phase,a greater proportion of the workingage population moves through the(potentially) higher income earningand/or saving age groups.The second dividend is linked to thelevel of investment in the first dividend.In the report Mäori: DemographicDividend for Economic Return, thecollateral demographic dividend is athird interpretation of the demographictrends with significant positiveimplications for Mäori. They arise as theresult of there being two very differentage structures (Mäori and European) inthe same economy.38T E P U N I K ö K I R I | K ö K I R I | H u i - t a n g u r u — P o u t ü - t e - r a n g i 2 0 1 2

HäkinakinaMass start IronMäori 2011Tängata MaitaiIronMäori winner two years running Kevin Nicholson.PHOTO CREDIT: HAWKES BAY TODAY.A hauora initiative, which began toencourage people to adopt healthierlifestyles and to establish goals towardsthat, has morphed into a huge one-dayevent in Hawkes Bay.Iron Mäori – where people swimtwo kilometres, cycle 90kms and run21.1kms – was established in 2009 andattracted fewer than 300 participants.That number doubled in 2010 and on 3December last year 1550 people tookpart in Iron Mäori number three.While the event itself is important,and a huge crowd of supporters andparticipants gather at the start/finishline at Ahuriri in Napier, the goalsetting and the preparation is wherethe real work is done.Organiser Heather Skipworth talks aboutpeople turning round their lives whiletraining for the event, and achievingmajor health gains along the way.“Two of the men who took part weighedover 200-kilogrammes before theyentered. One of them Harley Thompsonweighed 240kgs and in the course ofhis training and adopting a healthierlifestyle he dropped to 170kgs.”“Of the 1550 people who took part,only a handful didn’t complete theirevent. Those who did now know that ifthey set goals and achieve their aims,they can take on anything. They canapply this to anything in life.”The overall winner of Iron Mäori 2011was Kevin Nicholson who hails fromWairoa but lives in Wellington. He wonin 2010 too. Kevin’s winning time wasfour hours and forty-four minutes.The first woman home was AliHollington from Hawkes Bay and hertime was within ten minutes of Kevin’s.Race Director Jeanette Cooper wasparticularly impressed with the effortsof Agnes Allen from Kaitaia.“She came from a position of completeinactivity prior to training for IronMäori and competing in all threeevents; the swim, bike ride and run.”“It took her 12-hours 32-minutes and54-seconds to finish.”“We had packed up and most peoplehad gone off to the prize-giving whenshe was coming in to the finish, but shekept going because she really wanted toget her finishing medal; and she did.”42T E P U N I K ö K I R I | K ö K I R I | H u i - t a n g u r u — P o u t ü - t e - r a n g i 2 0 1 2

ToiBack in ActionThe Mäori art quality and authenticity brand Toi Iho is up andrunning again, following a glitch in 2010.People like Sir Apirana Ngata talked about a quality assurancetrademark or qualification in the 1930s; the New Zealand MäoriCouncil debated it again in the 1960s. But it wasn’t until 2002 thatCreative New Zealand was able to set it up.Toi Iho continued for the next seven years until public fundingpressure meant Creative New Zealand needed to divert funds toother areas of its work. Toi Iho went into abeyance.After a series of discussions, eventually the Transition ToiIho Foundation was formed and finally TIKI – Toi Iho KaitiakiIncorporated – transferring the Toi Iho trademark and all theintellectual property involved into Mäori control.A big challenge for TIKI and Toi Iho was last year’s Rugby World Cupwith Toi Iho associated artists seeking, and getting, the ability todisplay their works at RWC venues and also at Waka Mäori. It wasa major success.Professor Bob Jahnke from Massey University one of the seniorartists behind the new arrangements feels very relaxed about howthings are progressing.“The Trust is currently working through the re-registration of artistsand outlets that can use the Toi Iho trademark. We’re concentratingon those two categories, artists and outlets.”“There are about 50 or so artists seeking re-registration, and thereare other senior artists with proven track records of quality andauthenticity who have honorary status to use the Toi Iho mark,people like Sandy Adsett.”Ta Moko Mask - Totara - Matt Smiler.Two years on the trademark is back in action in Mäori hands.The Kura Galleries around the country are the sorts of places Toi Ihoartists display their work.Mäori Girl - Hand carved mdf -James Atutahi.Bone pendant - Kerry Thompson.T E P U N I K ö K I R I | K ö K I R I | H u i - t a n g u r u — P o u t ü - t e - r a n g i 2 0 1 245

Both Dean and Kristen went on to take upfurther leadership opportunities.As usual, this year’s competition has two judging rounds.
