  1. Why shouldn’t he take up the role? Is it due to his age? Do any of you know what is involved in this role? I think it is an amazing opportunity for whatumoana . Who knows, through doing this he may become the next maori king when the time arrives. Instead of questioning why hes recieving this role, try sending him positivity and mana to help him through this journey. Every opportunity is a stepping stone to SUCCESS!
