Thank you Papa Ngarima for your response (Letters, Sept 7).
I do indeed claim tupuna status to Ngaputoru, Aitutaki and the Northern Pa Enua to Raiatea and I know from whom I descend and I believe that I stand in a position to be able to talk with some authority on this matter regarding the ‘Great Fleet’.
Speaking to a friend last week, she was telling me about these two kids on Facebook who decided to take their pet fish in the fish tank for a swim with them ... in their swimming pool!
With all the celebrations recognising the Maori King with the gifting of land from the people of Aitutaki I have to ask how can it be?
OPINION: Dear editor, I want to ask the Prime Minister if he likes to eat tinned fish? I know I don't, but that is all I can afford and even then it is very expensive.
“Our traditional leaders have spoken” was the caption the CIP recently posted, sharing an article via Facebook in which Tupuna Rakanui stated the Ui Ariki supported water Chlorination. I’d like to remind them just how “traditional” they are.
As the debate continues, to treat water or not, I find it interesting to read so many opinions. It occurs to me that either way there will be a huge number of people left disappointed by the final decision.
