Te Karere on TVNZ Ondemand

Dec 7 - Temporary prisons

Katahi ano ka whakamanatia tetahi ture, e noho mai ai nga taiwhanga pupuri mauhere ki roto i nga kooti, hei whare herehere tuturu.
A new government legislation will now allow a number of district court cells to be used as temporary prisons.

Tekau nga kooti ka taka ki raro i te kaupapa nei.  E ai ki te minita i nga take mauhere a Judith Collins, he kaupapa tenei mo nga mauhere iti noa iho nei o ratou hara.  Ka mutu, kei te hiahia ia kia noho ko te kaupapa nei hei kowhiringa whakamutunga.
The new law, brought in under urgency last week, affects 10 courts throughout the country.  Minister of corrections, Judith Collins, says that the scheme is aimed at minimum security inmates, and should only be used as a last resort.

Ahakoa tera, e ai ki a hone harawira, te mangai o te rtm mo nga take whare herehere, ki te kore tatou e tupato, tera pea ka noho ko te whare kararehe te otinga mo a tatou mauhere.
But corrections spokesperson for the Maori Party, Hone Harawira, urges caution, saying that inmates may end up their local zoo, if we continue on this path.

Dec 7 - Tree Harvesting

Kua timata nga mahi topetope rakau i te whenua o te iwi o ngati wai i te taitokerau. E toru tekau tau te iwi e tatari ana kia tae ake nga rakau nei ki te pakeketanga e tika ana hei topetopenga ma ratou e puta mai ai he hua-a-putea.kei te rohe o ngai-o-tonga
Tata tonu ki nga rohe o whanga-rei me kawakawa nga nga rakau nei. Kei a maiki sherman te roanga ake o nga whakamahuki.           
Tree harvesting has begun on Ngatiwai land in northland. The tribe have been waiting 30 years for the trees to mature for harvesting, so they may reap the monetary benefits. The trees are situated in Ngaiotonga near Whangarei and Kawakawa.

He tangi kua toru tekau tau e taaria ana e te iwi o Ngatiwai. E taka mai ai nga hua o ta ratou kaupapa whakatoo rakau.
It's a sound the tribe of Ngatiwai have been waiting 30 years to hear. Representing the fruits of their tree plantation project.

"This is the harvesting of a project that was set-up many years ago. Now we are finally reaping the benefits."

Rua rau wha tekau heketea te rahi o te ngahere paaina nei, a ko te whakapae ka rua tau te roa e topea ana.                                                                                                                                                                      
This pine forest is 240hectares large and it is envisaged it will take two years to harvest.

He kaupapa mahi ngatahi i waenga i te kaporeihana mahi rakau o te Taitokerau me te uepu o Whangaroa ngäiotonga- no ratou te whenua a na te kaporeihana nga rakau.
It is a joint project between Taitokerau Forestry limited and Whangaroa Ngaiotonga trust, they own the land while Taitokerau Forestry limited owns the trees.

Rima rau mano taara ka whiwhi i te iwi o Ngatiwai i te mutunga iho, a kei te whakaaro tonutia te taha ki te whenua mo nga tau kei tua.
Ngatiwai will receive $500,000 from the project, but plans are still being decided upon for the land use in coming years.

Ahakoa te kaupapa ahuarangi hou kua whakaritea mai e te kawanatanga, kaore te iwi o Ngatiwai i te tino whakapono koina te ara pai moratou.
Although the government have initiated a new emission trading scheme, the tribe of Ngatiwai do not firmly believe that is the right path for them.

Otira, he timatanga noaiho tenei mo te kaporeihana mahi rakau o te Taitokerau. Neke atu i te wha mano heketea o te ngahere paina ka hauhaketia e ratou I ga tau tekau ma rua e haere ake nei. 
In terms of Taitokerau Forestry Limited this is just the beginning for them. They have more than 4000hectares of land to harvest over the next 12 years.
