From Midday Report, 12:42 pm on 11 November 2021

One of Brian Tamaki's iwi is distancing itself from the Destiny Church leader saying he is putting his people at risk.

Ngāti Hikairo say his focus on individual rights reminds them of colonisation, and that does not align with the iwi's values.

Māni Dunlop spoke to Te Runanganui o Ngāti Hikairo chair, Susan Turner, who says he is not showing leadership.
