Founder Sam Hudson begins the conversation with Bryce Smith of the Kaeo Office revealing who he is, what happens at the Kaeo office and what his role is in regards to the people of Ngapuhi.

*Ngāpuhi Speaks is an independent report about He Wakaputanga o Te Rangatiratanga o Nu Tireni (1835) & Te Tiriti o Waitangi (1840), published in November, 2012.  It summarises and assesses the Ngāpuhi Nui Tonu evidence given at the Initial Hearing of their Waitangi Tribunal claim (WAI 1040).

The authors found that the knowledge presented by Ngāpuhi Nui Tonu gives New Zealanders crucial new insights into the history of our country.

The chiefs had no doubts about their own mana … Our tupuna signed He Whakaputanga and Te Tiriti so that their power and authority could be recognised and provided for. They would never give their power and authority away, or forego their way of life.
