A Presbyterian Church leader believes there are too many schisms between Maori and non-Maori and says he will urge non-Maori to work harder to form positive relationships with tāngata whenua in his speech at Waitangi. An executive member of the Maori Catholic Council says one way to encourage more tangata whenua into the ministry rather than become priests, is to recruit more Maori to become deacons. Auckland's largest hapu hopes to take an active lead in social housing for its people and wider community. A Manawatū tribe is making a claim on an ancient argillite adze that was found on the shores of Lake Ōnoke in southern Wairapapa last year.
