Twenty-one way to take away treaty rights



"This article was written by Cherryl Waerea-i-te-rangi Smith of Ngati Porou, Ngati Apa. It was inspired by a similar list written by Jerry Gambill, a Mohawk Scholar, in 1968, titled "Twenty-one ways to scalp an Indian". It highlights many of the ways in which the Crown has sought to undermine our rights under Te Tiriti o Waitangi, over the past 155 years. It shows how there are many ways that the Crown are attempting to do this and that in order to stop this we must e aware of the ways in which they do it. This list provides us with examples of some of the ways in which the Crown works to deny us our rights and the rights of our tamariki and mokopuna".
