HONE HARAWIRA: HIKOI CAN HAPPEN AGAIN
So after six years, the government is announcing this week that the Foreshore and Seabed Act will be laid to rest.
Replacing it will be a new law that at its heart, will remove the country's coastline from Crown Ownership - meaning no one will own it.
It represents a significant victory for the Mäori Party, who all along said they would repeal the existing legislation and give back to Mäori the right to take their claims to court.
But their own MP, Hone Harawira says the deal doesn't go far enough. He says Mäori are already considering another Hikoi to protest whatever new law will replace the old one - and he's accused Prime Minister John Key of "Pandering to rednecks&" - and that the Foreshore and Seabed should be placed under Mäori title.
Is he right?

A BOY CALLED TE AHO
He starred in the hit movie "Boy" as 'Rocky', the cheeky kid whose mind-control techniques are so good they can make full-grown men fall over.
It was a performance that's bowled over audiences throughout the country and overseas and has everyone wondering - where does Te Aho Eketone-Whitu get his acting talent from?
Reporter Karley Hemopo visited the Bay of Plenty settlement of Minginui, to get an idea first-hand, of what it means to be the boy called Te Aho.
