A Far North iwi leader says he feels he's fulfilled the aspirations of kaumatua, following the purchase of their ancestral maunga. Northland's Regional Council is set to make some weighty decisions next year - with the help of a new Maori Advisory Committee. A lawyer representing Maori military veterans in their quest for compensation says the Government should acknowledge all Maori who fought in battles and not just those fighting on behalf of the Crown.
