"Nā tō [mua atu] Kāwana, nā Kāwana Kerei, i pēhi ngā Māori mō ō rātou hara, engari kāore mātou i pōuri i te mea i hāngai tonu i raro i te ture... kua mahi te Kāwana hou, a Kāwana [Gore] Browne... kia raupatutia hētia ngā whenua o Taranaki... [I tēnei] hara o te Kāwana ka noho pōuri mātou engari e whakapono ana mātou kāore koe e hiahia kia haere tonu... E tono ana mātou kia whakahokia tēnei Kāwana ki Ingarangi kei pūmau āna mahi ki konei."

"Nā te whakaaro aha rā, i whakahē ai a Pūhipi i ngā tikanga ā-iwi me ngā tikanga ahakoa he aha, engari e whakaae ana e ai ki ā te Māori... tikanga i mua atu i te Tiriti o Waitangi, kua kore e āhei a [Te] Teira ki te hoko i ōna whenua. E kī ana [a Pūhipi] mēnā i hokona e [Te] Teira ōna whenua i mua atu i te Tiriti... kāore e kore ka whakakauraro a ia ki te mana rangatira o Wiremu Kingi. Ka whakaae ia ki te huarahi o Wiremu Kingi i mua atu i te Tiriti... ka ōrua tana whakaae ki ngā tika ā-iwi…. kia pūruatia te kōrero, ko te mana Rangatiratanga... i tino whakaaetia... ā i tino mārama ki ngā rōpū e rua i haina i te Tiriti..."

Minita John Warren,
Mihingare WetEriana, he kanohi kitea ki ngĀ hui i Waitangi me Hokianga I runga i ngĀ kŌrero i te hainatanga o te Tiriti o Waitangi

"He rahi ngā kōrero a ngā tāngata whenua, e hāngai ana ki runga i te kaupapa o te pupuri i te rangatiratanga o te whenua, me tō rātou ake mana motuhake. Ahakoa ētahi atu o ngā mea katoa, e pai ana ki a rātou te taka atu ki raro i te maru o te Kuini, ā, e ai ki ā rātou kōrero huhua, nā te mōhio e ora ai rātou i te pāhua a ētahi atu iwi, me noho rātou i raro i te maru o te Kuini o Ingarangi. Tāku i rongo ai i rite katoa ā rātou kōrero, 'Kia kotahi tātou. I haria mai te Karaipiture i Ingarangi, tukuna mai te ture i Ingarangi.' Ōku whakaaro i tērā wā e mea ana au i te mārama pai rawa atu ngā tāngata whenua mēnā ka hainatia te Tiriti ka taka rātou ki raro i ngā tāngata o Ingarangi, ahakoa taku noho i waenganui i a rātou mō te tekau mā rima tau i tua atu i taua mahi, ā, he nui aku kōrero me rātou i runga i te kaupapa nei, kāore au i kite i te hua ki te huri i aku mahara. I te mataku rawa ngā tāngata whenua i ngā tāngata o Wīwī, ā i whakapono rātou i pai tā rātou mahi ki te whakanoho i te raiona o Ingarangi i waenganui i a rātou me te hōkioi o Wīwī."

"Kua rongo mātou kei te kimi tō tira i tētahi ture kia whai wāhi ki ō mātou whenua i waho atu i tō mātou tāone i Hauraki. Nā, me mutu te mahi a tō tira, nā te mea ehara taua whenua nō te Kuini, nō mātou ake.

Ko taua wāhi nei he mahinga pātiki, he kohinga tuangi, ā, he wāhi mahi manu mai i te wā o ō mātou tīpuna tae noa ki a mātou. Ko tenei whenua he tino taonga ki ō mātou tīpuna, i pakangatia, ā, kua mate hoki ngā tāngata mō aua whenua e haere nei mātou ki te hī ika, kohi tuangi me te manu. Kei a mātou tonu te mana o runga i aua whenua nei... Nā, whakamahia te mana o te Tiriti.

Nā te Tiriti te kī ka tika te noho a ngā Māori i raro i te maru o te Kuini, ka tiakina e ia ō mātou whenua, me ngā wāhi mahinga ika, kuku, tuangi me ngā manu. Nā, i te kitenga o te koura i Hauraki, e mea ana te Kuini he whenua ōna kei reira! E hoa, kia kaha ki te whakapūmau i ērā whenua me ō mātou whenua i tua atu o ngā papa paru ki a mātou."

KŌti Maori, Te WhakawĀnga i te kĒhi o te Kauwaeranga

"Nōku ōku whakaaro, kei te maumahara tonu ahau ki te mahea me te āhua tūturu o ngā tohutohu i whakatakotohia ki mua i te aroaro o Kāpene Te Hopihona, ko ngā whakaaro o ngā rōpū e rua ki te kirimana ki te whakapūmau ki ngā tāngata whenua te whakahaere tonu o ō rātou whenua, tae noa ki tā rātou i tūmanako ai kia tukuna ki te Karauna. I pupuri tonu ngā tāngata whenua ki a rātou anō... te ‘wāhi whai painga’ i te wā i whakatakaina ki te Karauna o Ingarangi te 'wāhi tiketike'...

Ākene pea kāore he tauira kē atu o tētahi koroni i whakatūria i runga i te āhua tōtika o Aotearoa, arā, i runga i te kirimana ki te iwi mohoao, i riro i te Karauna o Ingarangi te mana whenua, te wāhi tiketike, ā, i whakaūhia ki ngā tāngata whenua te wāhi whai painga, arā, te whakamahinga me te puritanga o ngā whenua...

Ko ngā whenua i taunahatia i mua, i te rā o te Tiriti o Waitangi, ngā whenua me ngā mahinga ika i tōna tini, i takitahi rānei te pupuri o ngā tāngata tūturu? I te mea, mēnā i pērā, ka mana te tino rangatiratanga i taurangitia ki ngā kaipupuri e te Karauna o Ingarangi. Otirā kua tino pono tēnei. Me kimi e tātou i roto i te Tiriti ake, te rongoā pono mō ō tātou raruraru, ā, ka noho i nāianei ki te whiriwhiri mehe i hapa te kī taurangi, i te tukunga o te mana whenua o te moutere ki te Kuini. Ā, ko te whakaaro nui, ko te kupu taurangi te tino pūtake mō te tukunga..."

"He aha i riro ai ō mātou whenua me ō mātou whare ki raro i te maru [o ngā kaikomihana a te Kāwanatanga]? Nōku tōku whare, nōku taku koti, nōku anō taku tarau roa me aku hū hoki. He aha te take i rawekehia ai? He ture taurite anō mō ngā Pākehā? Kāore pea. Ā, ko te ture nei i hāngai ki ngā Māori anake... Kaua e kī mai he huarahi kē mō ngā Māori, he huarahi kē mō ngā Pākehā, kei te hē tēnā... Kei te pupū ki ōku whakaaro [i runga i te pire nei], kei te herea mātou ki te taura, kia rite ki te hōiho. Kua herea e koutou ngā Māori ki tētahi pōhi, ā, ka haramai ngā tāngata komihana ki te tiaki i a mātou... Ko koutou e kī ana ka tangohia ō mātou whenua hei painga mō ngā tāngata tūturu; ā, ka tangohia ō mātou whenua, ā, ka haria ā mātou tamariki kia ākona ki te kōrero i te reo Pākehā. Ā, kia puta mai i tō rātou kura, kei hea he whenua hei nohoanga mō rātou? Me noho rātou i runga i te wai, me rere rānei pēnei i te kererū? He aha te pai o te kī ka ākona ngā tamariki Māori ki te reo Pākehā? Mēnā ka kumea e koe te whenua i raro i a rātou he aha te painga o te mātauranga?... Kua kite tōku iwi i tēnei Ture, ā, kei te kī rātou ka rite ki te wā o Whēra, te wā i heia ai te ioka ki runga i ngā kakī o ngā tamariki o Iharaira. Kei te whakamahia anō taua āhua i nāia tonu nei. I te wā e ora ana mātou ka taea te ārai i ngā raruraru, engari ka mate ana mātou ko ā mātou tamariki ka rite ki ngā tamariki o Iharaira. Ka tangohia ō mātou whenua ka waiho ki roto i ngā ringaringa o ngā tāngata Kōmihana."

"I runga i te tūāpapa o tenei koroni, i rokohanga ngā tāngata whenua kāore ō rātou kāwanatanga, ā rātou tikanga noho ā-ture. Kāore e kore i ngā tau kua pahure ko te Kāwanatanga o Ingarangi e hiahia ana ki te whakanui i te mana motuhake o ngā tāngata o Aotearoa. Engari kāore i tinana, ā, kāore i tutuki i taua wā. Kāore i taea e ngā iwi Māori te whakahaere i ā rātou mahi, nō reira e kore e taea e rātou ngā tikanga a ngā iwi noho rangatira... Kāore he rōpū tōrangapū e taea ai te tuku te mana whenua, kāore hoki he mana whenua... Nō reira, ko te tumu e āhei ai te tuku i te mana whenua... [te Tiriti] he mea mana kore."

RĒNATA KAWEPŌ
HE RANGATIRA NŌ NGĀTI KAHUNGUNU, HERETAUNGA, KI A TĀ HŌRI KEREI

Ko tāku kupu tēnei ki a koutou, tōku mana, i whakapūmautia i raro i te Tiriti o Waitangi, e mana tonu nei. Nā Te Tiriti o Waitangi i kī... ko tōku mana motuhake mō taku whenua me noho rawa mai i ahau. Engari anō koutou e te iwi Pākehā, kua tae mai nei, kei te hīpoki koe i taua mana kia ngaro rawa. Ko tāku kupu tēnei ki a koutou, hauhakengia tēnei mana, tukua kia puta mai ki waho nā te mea i whakapūmautia, i whakamanaia hoki e te kupu a Te Kuini, arā, e te Tiriti o Waitangi. Koia ahau ka inoi atu nei ki a koe kia huraina mai taku mana, tahia atu te oneone e haupū nei i runga i a ia.

ki ngĀ Rangatira i te hui i ŌrĀkei

"Kei te kōrero ahau i runga i te kaupapa o te Tiriti o Waitangi. Ko aku whakaaro e mea ana he ora me te mate kei roto i taua tiriti. Ka kōrero ahau mō te ora - ngā hua i riro mai i taua tiriti. Nā roto i ngā āhuatanga papai o te tiriti i whakakotahi ai tātou ki roto i tēnei whare i te rā nei ki te wānanga i ā tātou nawe, ā, kia tiakina tātou i ngā pakanga a ngā tāngata nō ētahi whenua kē. Kia kore taua Tiriti, kua nōhia tēnei whenua e ngā iwi kē, ā, ka turakina hoki tātou ki raro. Tuarua, i roto i taua tiriti rā i whakakorea ngā pakanga i waenganui i te iwi Māori. Koinei noa iho ngā hua e kite nei ahau i puta mai i te Tiriti o Waitangi.

Kei te kōrero ahau i nāianei mō ngā whakararu i ara ake i taua tiriti. E whakahau ana te Kuini i roto i taua tiriti ka mau tonu i a tātou te mana o ngā whenua; te mana o ngā ngahere, ngā mahinga ika, ngā wāhi kohinga pipi, me ētahi atu mea ka mau tonu ki a tātou te iwi Māori: engari i nāianei kua wareware aua kupu. Kāore anō i riro mai i a tātou aua hua; engari ehara nō te Kuini te hē – nō te Kāwanatanga o Aotearoa. Ko tētahi atu whakararu ko te Kōti Whenua Māori me ngā Karauna karāti. Nā aua karāti Karauna ka taka ō tātou mana. E mea ana ahau koinei ngā kino i ara ake i te Tiriti o Waitangi."
