This week the New Zealand Maori Council will head to Ratana for the annual commemorations - we do so because we both have a common past in many of the social and economic affairs of our people, the aspiration of our people and more. We do so because the vision of this amazing and inspiring movement, the Ratana movement, is one for Maori to be proud of and share in. Our delegation will be led by Matthew Tukaki, our Executive Director and member of the National Executive, Chair of the National Maori Authority, Tane Cook, also a member of our National Executive and who also leads our National Committee on Te Reo and Culture, Diane Tuari, Chair of Hauraki District Maori Council and including Brent Reihana from the Maori Business Network
