As an associate member of the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, Te Runanga-a-Iwi o Ngati Kahu urge all our whanau, marae, churches me nga roopu katoa to sign and support the petition calling on the New Zealand government to ratify the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People.

New Zealand was one of only four member countries of the UN who refused to ratify the DRIP when it was put to the vote in 2007.  The other three countries were Canada, the United States of America and Australia.
