Te Karere brings a fresh Māori perspective to the day's news and current affairs.
Even after nine years in government with the Māori Party, the New Zealand National Party still sees the value of having them by its side. National leader Bill English told Te Karere that although the Māori Party have been very influential in government policies and have brought gains for Māori, they often don’t get the acknowledgement they deserve.
