But Mannie soon sees his misfortune as an opportunity to reclaim land in the Tongariro National Park that belonged to his Maori tribe more than one hundred and thirty years ago.

The issue of what is happening with the Pekapeka block is not solely one of land ownership or economics, it is one of needing meaningful and enduring pathways of social justice to heal those soul wounds.

Debate on Prime Minister’s Statement
But this is not just any other block. This is the Pekapeka block and the name is significant within our history.

Te Kooti tango whenua offers a picture of the David Vernon Williams, Whenua : Identity. All over the world land is an important issue that groups of people are prepared to fight over, just as our ancestors did long ago.
