I am disgusted with the views which some media and Government sponsored groups present which do not include the racial treatment of Moriori's, the untrue facts about divided view points of Maoris in the land wars and the omission of the murders of innocent Maoris and Settlers

Innocent victims should never be ignored and forgotten just for the sake of political convenience.

Ignoring history is pretty much the same as rewriting it. No matter how distasteful or how inconvenient to current political sentiment, the past should be an open book. Otherwise George Orwell's chill statement (hus book "1984")about what happens to the world when history may be rewritten; is upon us.

I am feed up with maori claiming how badly they have been treated. They owe their survival to the intervention of the British. They would have been destroyed by their own tribal in-fighting if the British had not taken control of the situation.
When will this continual grab from our government stop. It has been 40+ years since the Waitangi Tribunal was established, how can there still be genuine greivance claims still being fabricated, it is time to disband it

History is a bit one side in this country. There’s alway two sides so why is it always told one sided
