West links on Maori board By VANITA PRASAD There will be strong links to west Auckland on the Maori Statutory Board set up to advise the Auckland Council. Wayne Knox has been selected for one of the seven iwi representative seats while John Tami- here has been selected for one of two urban Maori seats. Mr Knox will be rep- resenting west Auck- land's Te Kawerau a Maki and Ngati te Ata and says he is mindful of the responsibility that comes with the position. I'm not just represen- ting my iwi but other iwi and tangata whenua as well,'' he says. Te Kawerau a Maki is one of the tribes of Wai- takere while Ngati te Ata is an iwi of the Wai- takere Ranges. Mr Knox says his appointment on the board is an opportunity for change but the board itself is a second best option. Mr Tamihere is chief executive of Te Whanau O Waipareira Trust in west Auckland. He is unsure of the advisory board's powers. But he believes the committee's first meet- ing on November 15 will discuss how it will oper- ate as well as its man- date and resourcing. The nine member board is independent from the Auckland Coun- cil.
