Ki roto i ngā whakanuitanga o Matariki e aki ana te kaitono motuhake mo te turu Māori o tenei rohe i te iwi, kia tuku o rātou pōti ki a ia e mana ai tana noho hei mema paremata mo Te Taitokerau.

Hei tā Clinton Dearlove, “Ae e ngākaunui ana au ki te whakaaro e toru ngā mea reo ki roto i te whare miere.” 

“Koia tēnei te whakaaro e ngakanui ana au.  I raro i te MMP he mahi nanakia a tātou nei i Te Taitokerau ka taea e mātou e toru ngā mea tuhuru mō mātou o Te Taitokerau i roto i te whare miere.  Ko tēnei mea te mea nui.”

He kaitono o mua mō te rōpū Mana ki roto i Te Waipounamu, e mea ana tenei uri o Ngāti Pakau na te teitei o koro Kelvin Davis me Papa Hone Harawira i nga rarangi o a raua torangapu me aru atu te iwi i te rautaki e kaha ake ai tōna reo.

He pūkenga i te ao mātauranga, e ngākaunui ana Clinton ki te hāpai i te rangatahi kia puawai ai i te mea kei a ratou te mana e tu tonu ai to tatou ao Māori amuri nei.
