Find out more about what the
Maori Party stands for.
Updated 9 December 2008
In the Maori Party’s 2008 NZ general election policy, its website
said “ the Maori Party is asking an important question”:
He aha te mea nui o te Ao?
What is the most important thing in the world?
The election policy statement said “many of you have told us, he
tangata, he tangata, he tangata: it is people, it is people, it is people.”
But such is the rich and creative tapestry of the people who inhabit Aotearoa,
that we have received many other answers.
Real wages for real work; being respected; a clean environment; my kids;
seeing the Treaty honoured; thriving whanau and communities; having hope.
