My understanding was complicated by growing up in the diaspora (in Australia), but still tethered to the whenua, enveloped within my whānau, and proud of an identity intertwined with a mamae I couldn’t quite name. Why our parents, aunties and uncles were given good Pākehā names, and not the kind that would strengthen their identity and whakapapa, but also make them targets in a new assimilationist world. For those on the frontlines, many of whom have been on this journey for a long time, kia kaha. The co-leaders of the hapÅ« alliance, Pita Tipene and Rudy Taylor, have worked together for years on hapÅ« land claims with the Waitangi Tribunal process. We’ve held firm to that position.
