the coast the circuit the mine the possum

Maori TV is awesome. My favorite program at the moment is The Circuit - I have been trying to imagine this type of program being made here - I hope our moviemakers look at this type of drama about us, for us.

Maori TV also have snippets on Ngāi Tahu quite often - i wonder if they would consider putting their programs grouped by iwi - it would make it easier to find things... Two items which caught my eye...

Ngāi Tahu will not support mining in Paparoa lands

Ngāi Tahu will never agree on 1080 being used on their ancestral lands

Two issues at either end of the coast that affect all people of this land. Strong words and actions are needed. leadership and inspiration are needed - these items are part of that process.
