Twisting the Treaty: A Tribal Grab for Wealth and Power [updated]
Ahem, allow me to recommend a new book—just published!
As you’ll have seen, there are one or two names there that might be familiar.
The book appears at an important time in the country’s constitutional history. If the Treaty itself arrived just in time to cement in place and reward pre-Treaty genocidal land grabs by the likes of Hongo Hika, Te Rauparaha and others, then the Maori-National party’s “constitutional review” of today arrives at a time when Maori corporations, having been gifted billions by taxpayers for things we haven’t done, seek to have their “special” status as a permanent drain on taxpayers constitutionally protected.
If enough people read this book, it could lead to some much needed changes in the way we are governed.
