MAKI MAIHI-TANIORA & ANITA STOWERS (nee Pehi)
Both whanau from the Hokianga (far north) have been sitting on this idea for 25 years. During this time statistics show the Maori social and economic indicators have not improved even though research over these years has given policy advice to inform strategies and action plans developed to work towards improving these statistics. We believe that there is a fundamental flaw. We aim to address that flaw.
WHEN WE ADDRESS THE FLAW
We believe the following will create a momentum for change, not only with indigenous people, but all who can see what is good for Maori will be good for the nation. Therefore the future movement will be based on the following vision and mission statement.
“freedom to think freedom to dream freedom to be”
to rejuvenate indigenous people of Aotearoa; to stimulate optimism and happiness
to inspire a nation to work together; to create value and make a difference
BEFORE WE DISCLOSE THE IDEA
People are asking how they can support the idea. At this early stage it is important to get as many people to have access to the blog https://koreromai.wordpress.com and to our facebook page Maki & Anita by sharing the blog page and ‘liking’ and sharing the facebook page Maki & Anita. We are aiming for 5000 likes over the next two weeks. That’s how you can all help and thank you in advance for your support.
Maki raua ko Anita
