Ngapuhi kuia Titewhai Harawira on Paakiwaha
Waitangi was extremely successful says Ngapuhi kuia Titewhai Harawira and it's something she hasn't seen for a long long time.
Asked about a leadership problem in Ngapuhi she says she doesn't have a problem with anybody that listens to the people and the needs of the people.
Titewhai Harawira says the prime minister wanted to let everybody know that he'd been gagged by Ngapuhi. "Well good on Ngapuhi for gagging the prime minister" she says. "Who does he think he is". "What happens in parliament happens in parliament. We can't go down there and tell him this is how we want your parliament run, this is where you sit, this is what you talk about, No".
She says the police, marae trustees and the safety team at Waitangi worked closely together to ensure the absolute safety of the prime minister and visitng dignitaries.
