In the 1960’a Maasai radical activist (Moringe Ole Parkipuny) former member of Tanzanian Parliament coined the phrase ‘Indigenous People’ . August 1989 he was the first African so called ‘Indigenous Person’ (A self-determined Indigenous Person) to address the UN Working Group on Indigenous Populations in Geneva. He laid the foundations for the UN 2007 adopted UN Declaration for Indigenous Peoples Rights (UNDRIP)

An article written more recently in the New Yorker Magazine by Maniv Singh wrote ‘Many groups who identify as Indigenous don’t claim to be first peoples, many who did come first don’t claim to be Indigenous’. Winston Peters recently stated that Maori are not Indigenous to NZ they come from Hawaiki, but those that self identify in NZ as Indigenous People argue “they are Indigenous People’

Many African view the term ‘Indigenous People’ as having negative connotations, that concerted radical activists call themselves Indigenous People as do their international partners. Referring to the obsessive shift in attitudes. In Africa ‘Indigenous People’ call themselves the dominant class stating they reflect the interests activities beliefs of the majority. The so called ‘Indigenous People’ of New Zealand have taken the same attitude as if they are speaking for all those people with Maori ancestry, calling them ‘Our People’, without consent or consensus.

The Parkipuny coined phrase has become an expanded dominant force used as a political, economically rewarding tool to favour one group over all others in Nation States. Thus influencing environmental legislations and Resource Management, riddled in Identity Politics of Oppression and Victimhood. Useful in character assassinating Non-Maori whom oppose their narrative by demonizing industrialization in colonies. (Back to Tribal Feudalism- Decolonize everything) INSANITY.

The re-story telling, re-imaginings of a tribal warfare being non-=existent, that those of Maori ancestry were people of the forest that lived peacefully amongst themselves. Masking, silencing the genocide in the Chatham Island of the Morori by Maori tribalism, they were easy bait being peaceful loving people. The tribal warfare  attacks, slavery, torture, cannibalism to expose these facts one would be targeted as Racist, White Supremacist even those that have Maori ancestry have exposed this and also called white supremacists too.

The so called ‘Indigenous People’ aiding the Globalist Agenda 2030 ‘Our Future’ Leave No-one Behind, everyone, everywhere at every age- the main actors of this massive transformation are the UN & WEF, UN Nation Governments, Globalist Elite and Iwi Elite – Corporations, Global Asset Managers, Philanthropists eg Rockefeller, Gates Foundation etc., COP 28 ‘Indigenous People are at the centre, forefront of the global transformation Agenda 2030.

Like the words ‘Partnership’ Principles they were not created by the original Maori Version of Te Tiriti o Waitangi and nor was the phase ‘Indigenous People’. How did that coined Parkipuny phrase enter New Zealand? George Manuel President of the Canadian Indian Brotherhood with a Canadian Delegation visited to NZ, this was arranged by Justin Trudeau father Pierre Trudeau in 1971. George Manuel met with Maori Politicians where discussions took place on the use of the phrase ‘Indigenous People’

George Manual and the Canadian Delegation then travelled to a university in the Northern Territories of Australia where Manuel gave a speech to Aboriginal students on ‘Indigenous People’. Travelling from one place to another, the Parkipuny coined phrase ‘Indigenous People’ expanded across the world. George Manuel then established the UN International Indigenous Peoples Council. At one UN gathering 100+ native, tribal people walked out in protest complaining they had never consented to being classed as ‘Indigenous People’

The adopted ‘self determined’ identification ‘Indigenous People’ a one label for many natives, tribes, with numerous various cultures, traditions and globally 4,000 plus different languages. George Manuel was influential in planning the UNDRIP which took many years to plan, also Maori Ngati Awa hosted the first International Conference on Indigenous Cultural & Intellectual property rights

On the drafting of the UN Declaration for the Rights of Indigenous People many governments actively opposed it because of legal arguments such as NZ, Canada, US and Canada. It was in 1985 that enough UN Nation States agreed to drafting the UN Declaration hence establishing a working group to draft a plan. Maori from New Zealand were involved. Moana Jackson was a chairperson at the UN in 1990. Also involved were Joe Williams, Aroha Mead the daughter of Alec Kaihau who was also involved. Nganeko Minhinnick and her brother -Alec Kaihau (A family affair you could say. However as the years went by more Maori were involved in the drafting of the UNDRIP including Aunty Pauline Tangiora.

The Non-binding UNDRIP was first adopted at New York UN Headquarters 13th September 2007 (143 countries in favour of the UNDRIP- 4 countries rejected it-Australia, Canada, US, NZ- 11 abstained). Over the years Clair Charters who has been awarded a role in the NZ Human Rights Commission, Tracy Whare, Maona Sinclair and Catherine Davis are self determined advocates of the UNDRIP the goal being to implement this in New Zealand.

So why did the Labour Govt reject the 2007 UNDRIP.? Rosemary Banks was the representative of NZ that spoke for NZ at the UN Assembly on 13th Sept 2007, she explained to the gathering why NZ opposed the UNDRIP. She referenced 4 Provisions in and 4 articles that were non compliant to NZ that NZ has difficulty with. The text of the UN Declaration being fundamentally incompatible with NZ’s Constitutional and Legal arrangements also the Treaty Of Waitangi and the principle of governing NZ for the ‘GOOD OF ALL NZ CITIZENS’

Article 26 of the UN Declaration on Lands and Resources, Article 28 on Redress (Compensation) Articles 10 and 32 on ‘Rights of Veto Over The State’ . Article 26 states that ‘Indigenous Peoples’ have the right to own, use, develop or control lands, territories they have traditionally owned, occupied, used. This means the entire country of NZ being potentially caught up in the scope of this article. Does not recognize the rights of land lawfully owned by other citizens. Indigenous People would have rights that others do not have. Does not take into account land tenures.

The whole country would fall under Article 28 of the UNDRIP on ‘Redress’ (Compensation0. Does not take into account the land occupies by others legitimately. Implies that Indigenous People have  the Right to Veto that other groups or individuals do not have. The Provisions of the UNDRIP are so fundamentally incompatible with the democratic processes of NZ as a Sovereign Nation State, with legislation and NZ’s Constitutional arrangements.

Implies Indigenous People have the Veto Rights over Democratic Legislature & National Resource Management. Implies 2 classes of citizenship. Supporters of the UNDRIP in 2007 at the UN Assembly explained the UN Declaration as being an ‘aspirational’ document, one of inspiration rather than having a legal effect. In 2010 John Key under the National Govt arranged under a veil of secrecy for Pita Sharples of the Maori Party to sign the UNDRIP at the UN. Those other UN Nations States that rejected the UNDRIP have since agreed to it.

November 21-23rd 2023 a convention took place at Auckland University with overseas guests and speakers namely ‘The Korero Constitution’ referencing the enabling of the UNDRIP into NZ’s Constitutional arrangements. Nanaia Mahuta opened the 2nd day of the convention.

As the Three Party Coalition openly talk about the ‘Principles of the Treaty Of Waitangi’, time to bring certain issues of concern, and the facts to the eyes of NZ Citizens. The original Maori Version of Te Tiriti o Waitangi did not create a ‘Partnership’ nor ‘Principles’ nor was the coined Parkipuny phrase ‘Indigenous Peoples’ created by Te Tiriti O Waitangi. Te Tiriti O Waitangi NZ’s founding document has been severely corrupted.

Recent COP 28 gathering “Indigenous People’ are at the centre, forefront of Climate Change, the Global Agenda 2030’
