  2. In a nutshell ... "The reason [the myth of Moriori extinction] became so powerfully ingrained in the psyche of New Zealanders is because, if Māori could push Moriori out of NZ, then later European migrants could push Māori off their land,”
  3. The myth goes something like this: that once upon a time, Aotearoa was home to a race of people called the Moriori. That the Moriori were primitive, inferior folk. And that eventually, when Māori arrived on these shores, they massacred, ate, and completely wiped out the Moriori people. The myth was busted decades ago - yet it has persisted for generations. Why? Because it's convenient, according to Maui Solomon. Solomon is the chair of Hokotehi Moriori Trust. He, alongside many others with Moriori hokopapa, has been fighting for correction of the historical record - and for a treaty settlement - since 1988. And earlier this month, that settlement was finally signed, sealed and delivered. "The reason [the myth of Moriori extinction] became so powerfully ingrained in the psyche of New Zealanders is because, if Māori could push Moriori out of NZ, then later European migrants could push Māori off their land,” he says. "It suited the narrative, and it was a justification of European colonisation of Māori land." cheers...

  6. https://www.nzherald.co.nz/racing/news/article.cfm?c_id=53&objectid=12352398 SPORT | Racing Leo Molloy fined $15,000 and banned from racing for a year after calling official 'racist ****' 31 Jul, 2020 5:00am 3 minutes to read Auckland businessman Leo Molloy, 63, will not be able to attend any NZ race meetings for the next 12 months, and has been fined $15,000. Photo / Michael Craig By: Tom Dillane Tom Dillane is a reporter at the New Zealand Herald tom.dillane@nzme.co.nz @tomdillane1 Prominent Auckland businessman Leo Molloy has been fined $15,000 and banned from the racing industry for one year after calling a senior racing official a "racist ****" online. Molloy yesterday fronted a Judicial Control Authority hearing at Ellerslie Racecourse for a comment he made in an online forum about Neil Grimstone - a senior official in the New Zealand Racing Integrity Unit (RIU). Molloy was charged with calling Grimstone a "callous racist ****" on the Race Cafe forum on March 13. The RUI took Molloy to the Judicial Control Authority for breaking the 'insulting and abusive conduct' clause of the Rules of New Zealand Thoroughbred Racing Inc. Following a three-hour hearing yesterday morning, Molloy was fined $5000, and ordered to pay $7000 to RIU and $3000 to the Judicial Control Authority, to cover its legal costs. The 63-year-old owner of Auckland restaurant Headquarters was also banned from attending any New Zealand race meetings - or competing in them as an owner or trainer - for one year. "It is what it is. I'm not greatly bothered," Molloy told the Herald. Molloy has part ownership in only one racehorse now, but was an apprentice jockey as a teenager and spent many years training racehorses in the 2000s. Yesterday morning, the Judicial Control Authority for racing excluded the Herald from attending the hearing - as well as around half-a-dozen of Molloy's friends and supporters. Cheers Leo ....
