Arrowtown putting on three day event for Matariki

NIWA says the top time to check out the Matariki cluster is early morning on Friday or Saturday. And the best views will be from the lower North Island and the east of the South Island. But if you live elsewhere or are cold to the idea of rolling out of bed that early, you could bring in the holiday with a different kind of celebration. There are hunderds of events across the country to mark the Maori new year. One of them is Matariki Arrowtown Lights --- a free 3-day cultural event taking place in the heart of Ka Muriwai. Joining us now is Arrowtown Promotion and Business Association Manager Nicky Busst.

Celebrating diverse Matariki traditions

Tomorrow the country celebrates the rise of Matariki, but for a good many iwi and hapu, the new year was a couple of weeks ago. Along the west coast and in parts of the far north and the south their tohu of the new year is Puanga. And with a national public holiday for Matariki, there's an extra challenge of making sure their day isn't homogenised. Maori news reporter Jamie Tahana got his red bands on and went to Parihaka, which celebrates Puanga.

Employment advocate facing bankruptcy

An employment advocate who crusades for bullied workers is facing bankruptcy and the liquidation of his company after refusing to pay a long list of penalties for breaching client confidentiality agreements. CultureSafe director Allan Halse stands by his method of naming and shaming organisations accused of bullying and believes he gives workers a voice. But others say it's this kind of behaviour that gives employment advocates a bad name and the profession needs to be regulated with a code of conduct. Amy Williams reports.

Helping young people get drivers license essential

A woman whose son was killed by a driver on a restricted licence says adults must take the law more seriously to save young people from themselves. Police last year caught 5,000 drivers breaking their restricted licence conditions by carrying passengers - but they prosecuted just one of them. A Ministry of Transport study questions whether a stricter licencing system would protect young drivers better. Youth Inspire is a group working with rangatahi in Lower Hutt to get their drivers licenses, as well as employment and education. Its General Manager, Ali Black, spoke to Susie Ferguson.
