Cullen gets the arse from some north Island head hunters.


Some in Ngati Kahu were none too keen on the governments settlement and got stroppy at todays settlement signing in the far north. These rebel buggers are not to be trifled with..


This from stuff
The Crown and Ngati Kahu have signed an agreement in principle for a settlement package including an apology and more than $20 million.
Treaty of Waitangi Negotiations Minister Michael Cullen said there was a "difficult history" between Ngati Kahu and the Crown.
"This is a history of large-scale loss of Ngati Kahu land, much of it within 25 years of their ancestors and the Crown signing the Treaty of Waitangi," Dr Cullen said.
"With this agreement in principle we acknowledge that history and start the work to repair our relationship."


Killing flows through their veins from generations past. Us Ngai Tahu have a healthy respect for them. There were known to like a bit of long pork.

and it seems they chased Cullen

I reckon he had no choice but to run.

Ngāti Kahu were well known as coastal raiders and traders as far south as the Waipoua Forest, Whāngārei, Mahurangi and beyond.


Maybe its a case of Utu from the Mutu for not settling earlier...

This is a great post but pails into insignificance compared to the fact that Duncan Garner reads this blog and participates in you polls down the right hand side..
