Entrenching Te Tiriti o Waitangi

by Tariana Turia Speech to parliament 27 August 2008 On the 8th November 1918, Tahupotiki Wiremu Ratana, received a vision to gather signatures for a petition, to take to Parliament, to convince Government to make Te Tiriti o Waitangi part of the law of the land. It is a vision still waiting to be realised.

Rather than regarding the Treaty of Waitangi as a constitution, a document similar to the U.S. constitution would do a much better job of protecting individual New Zealanders against the ravages of politicians.
