Tēnā koe Friend -

Kua tīmata te pōti nā reira e rere ana ngā mihi ki a koutou me te akiaki i a koutou kia haria ō koutou whanaunga ki te pōti!

Nō reira, e tangi ana ki ngā mate o te wā me mihi kau atu ki a tātau katoa i te wā iti nei.

Voting <[link removed]> has started!

We have 11 days left before election day <[link removed][%7B%22surface%22%3A%22page%22%2C%22mechanism%22%3A%22main_list%22%2C%22extra_data%22%3A%22%5C%22[]%5C%22%22%7D]%2C%22has_source%22%3Atrue%7D> and as we turn to this last stretch of our campaign, we need that extra hand from you.

We need your help

Can you take as many whanaunga and friends with you to vote and if you’ve already voted? can you take others to vote too?  The more people we take to vote, the more we can get people to vote the Māori Party candidates <[link removed]>. 

Also take your children and mokopuna with you so they learn how important voting is as it then becomes a normalised whānau tikanga.  My mum and dad always took me to vote at either the Ohakune Primary School or the Court House and we take our tamariki and my daughter (unsolicited lol) is encouraging her friends to talk to their parents too!

At a minimum, we need to candidate vote and if it’s two ticks then that’s great too.

Mana Motuhake and Toi Māori Policies

Last week we launched our Mana Motuhake Policy <[link removed]> from the Treaty Ground at Waitangi and our Toi Māori Policy <[link removed]> at Opōtiki.  All our policies are awesome and this week we also release our last policy, our Justice Policy.

Our launch at Waitangi was special from the arrival at Te Tī Marae (lower marae), karakia the next day at the Whare Rūnanga and flag pole to the launch itself, there was a shift as we declared our commitment to Mana Motuhake.  Some may say it’s too far, but 30 years ago, people thought kohanga reo would never get off the ground and they would have laughed at the idea of kura instructing in total immersion reo Māori.

Our Toi Māori policy also helped to launch our Vote Kapa Vote challenge <[link removed]>, to get kapa haka to go to the polls together.  So, whether it’s kapa haka, whānau or sports groups, take our people to polls.

Our full suite of policies can be found on our website through this link, [link removed].

Tākuta Ferris mō Te Tai Tonga <[link removed]>

Tākuta <[link removed]> hails from Pōrangahau and his whakapapa links him throughout Te Tai Rāwhiti, Te Wai Pounamu and Ngāti Raukawa ki te Tonga.

He is currently based in Ōtaki with his wife Iriaka and their tamariki and works for Massey University.  Prior to Ōtaki they lived in Nelson and was a chance to foster his whanaungatanga to his Ngāti Kuia whakapapa at the top of the South Island and his mother also links to Oraka-Aparima at the bottom of the island too.

Tākuta (also known as Doc) is passionate about education and the environment and is a key advocate for our Māori taking the leap into Māori medium education.  He knows this to be true as he was raised in Australia for a time before they returned home to Aotearoa and was immersed in te ao Māori.  He is a kaiwhakairo (carver) and kapa haka exponent and actively practices mahinga kai while also monitoring our kaimoana stocks.

One thing with Tākuta, is he is a whaikōrero man and when you get him in front of our people, they turn to him so the more you can share how he is able to articulate kaupapa and share a long term view of our movement, the more people are changing their vote.  Here’s an example of Tākuta sharing his thoughts with Tahu FM <[link removed]>.

Can you help?

As we as taking people to the polls, can you also ask a friend to support us by donating <[link removed]>$25, $50, $100 or whatever you can afford to help us extend the fight and achieve the goal of returning back to Parliament on 17 October.

Kāti ake e te iwi, kia korikori tātau ki te pōti, ki te whakangāoko i te motu!

Ngā manaakitanga o te wā.
