The Coalition government has been put on notice by a swathe of Māoridom - as it gears up for the start of the political year - with further potential flashpoints on the horizon.

Some 10,000 people turned out for the Kiingitanga's nationwide hui over the weekend - in a historic showing.

Deputy political editor Craig McCulloch was at Tūrangawaewae Marae in Ngāruawahia.
