Chatham and Pitt Island Fisher Survey 2019

This survey is designed with the best interest of the local Chatham and Pitt Island Moriori
and Maori Fishing Community in mind.


The information collected will be used to advocate in the best interest of the local Chatham
Island Moriori and Maori Fishing Community both now and for future generations.


The information collected will help The International Native Aboriginal Court of Justice
determine whether The New Zealand Government, Fisheries New Zealand have violated the
customary and human rights of the Chatham and Pitt Island Moriori and Maori Fishing
Community with the introduction of DECKHAND E BOOKS tracking technology that costs
$5000 to purchase and cost $1300 a year to register.


Due to the logistical isolation of the Chatham and Pitt Islands the main source of income for
the Chatham and Pitt Island community are due to the fishing industry, therefore the impact
of New Zealand Government DECKHAND E BOOK tracking technology could equate to the
complete demise of the Moriori and Maori Fishing Community.


The DECKHAND E BOOK tracking technology offers nothing to the local Chatham and Pitt
Island Moriori and Maori Fishing Community.


The DECKHAND E BOOK tracking technology data collection has the capability to jeopardize
the smaller Moriori and Maori fishing operators, who could become forced out of business.


The impact of New Zealand Government enforced structures in the past have been quite
disastrous for the local Moriori and Maori Chatham and Pitt Island Fishing Community.


Such as the introduction of the quota system in the 1970s that discriminated against the
uneducated Moriori and Maori fishing community, who unknowingly sold off quota for very
little money.


The Chatham and Pitt Islands have dual jurisdiction and can opt between New Zealand and
Te Moana Nui A Kiwa jurisdiction.


The Territory of Te Moana Nui A Kiwa was formed by the ancient waka migration routes
that spanned the Pacific and includes Hawaii, Rapanui, Chatham Islands, Te Ika O Maui,
Norfolk Islands and other Pacific Islands.


It is important to note that the customary rights of Moriori and Maori can NEVER be
extinguished.


It is advisable that all Moriori and Maori descendants start exercising their customary rights
to ensure the corporate structure of the New Zealand Government is kept in check.
