Last night, Te Puni Kōkiri's consultation meetings wrapped up in the Bay of Plenty.
It's been a long journey throughout the country, and it seems the public are still wary of the Crown's motives.
Issues between the Govt and the Māori Council arose once again.
The Māori Council says throughout these meetings, they've had huge support to remain as stewards for the Māori Wardens. However it could be different in Tauranga Moana.
It was obvious that the Māori Wardens are the pawn in the battle between the Govt and the Māori Council.
Submissions close on this matter on October 31.
