Join our email list of discusion, alerts,
and views of those people who support the implementation of Tino Rangatiratanga.
The concept of Tino Rangatiratanga is
part of a rich and ongoing debate in Maori society. Roughly the word 'tino'
is an intensifier and the word 'rangatiratanga'broadly speaking relates to
the exercise of 'chieftainship'. Its closest english translation is self-determination
-although many also refer to it as 'absolute sovereignty'or Maori independence
/ Maori Sovereignty. Such a concept embraces the spiritual link Maori have
with 'Papatuanuku' (Earthmother) and is a part of the international drive
by indigenous people for self determination.
We welcome everyone who is an ally of
the Maori Sovereignty Movement. Here, we should respect each other's views
and seek to advance our understanding of all issues related to Tino Rangatiratanga.
