Maungawhau is recognised as one of the most well-preserved pre-historic fortifications of its type in the world. Features of the original pā survive, including historic pā tūāpapa (terraces) and rua (pits) around the crater area, but the inadequate track is damaging them.

A new boardwalk is planned for the crater rim at the tihi (summit) of Maungawhau which will help protect its Tūpuna Maunga status.

Oscar Perress talked to Paul Majurey, Chair of the Tūpuna Maunga Authority, and started by asking Majurey to explain the project.

Oscar Perress returns to the helm with his imperfect maths to actually put together a full Wire, despite many unfulfiled promises of Minister Hipkins.

A huge thanks to all involved/

Dr Sereana Naepi is currently the Associate Director of All My Relations, an indigenous research centre in Canada. In about a week, Dr Naepi will be returning to the University of Auckland where she helped run the Tuakana programme for 10 years to take up a lectureship position in the Sociology department. Recently, the university has been subject to posters and stickers advertising white supremacist ideology and recruiting for a particular group. The Vice Chancellor's response has been deemed inadequate by students and staff, who have organised a picket and a sit in, and signed an open letter respectively. Dr Naepi wrote a response to these happenings, and took the opportunity to break down the rhetoric used by the University in their response, as well as the university's policy regarding equity and academic speech. Lillian Hanly spoke to her about the article and started by asking what her understanding was of the current situation regarding the presence of white supremacy on campus.
