Native Affairs – Why aren’t we talking about Suicide?

The grim news was delivered today, 579 New Zealanders took their own lives between July 2015 and June this year. It's the same number as the Eketahuna district population. If they all died suddenly - how would we react? We'd be appalled, shocked, horrified. The Government would act. So, why isn't there more of an uproar to the fact 579 kiwis killed themselves? Comedian and Metal health advocate Mike King joins Native affairs in the studio.

Native Affairs – Pledge Sledge

Ten years ago it was 'Kiwi Not Iwi'. Today, it's 'Hobson's Pledge', and takes its inspiration from Governor Hobson's quote upon signing the Treaty Of Waitangi - 'He iwi tahi tatou' We are one people. The same man, former National Party leader Don Brash, is behind both campaigns. Ward Kamo caught up with Mr. Brash and his co-spokesperson Casey Costello from Ngāpuhi.
