Calls on the NZ government to fully engage iwi, hapu and Maori organisations in determining the NZ position on the UN draft Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
Acknowledging the apparent lack of any recent and meaningful participation by tangata whenua and the general public in determining the position the New Zealand government delegation took during October and December 2005 at the UN Working Group meetings on the draft Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, we request that the government of New Zealand immediately engage in mutually meaningful ways with iwi, hapu and other Maori organisations, as well as the general public, to review and substantially improve the government position on the UN draft Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
