Te Moutere o Matakana.... If you have'nt been to Matakana Island you would probly think its like Hawaii or Tahiti or something, well reality check its not that close to the equator. To the tangata whenua it is tropical and the perfect lifestyle for bringing up a family. It is a beautiful place to be @ if you're not into the fastlanes of the city. in the old days the Island belonged to the Tangata whenua but as the years went by and the greed of the locals grew & continues to grow they started selling the Island to outsiders (non- Tangata Whenua), slowley we are starting to loose the island to the rich. We have lost alot or rights to acsesses to parts of the island. That really saddens me as half our tangata whenua living there today take our land for advantage, in a couple of years the whenua of Matakana is going to be lost & there will be no more tangata whenua living there anymore.... Come Rebelz stop selling our land for your greed of money instead we should be trying to preserve our land for our rangatahi.
