Ki te raki o Otepoti, kei te kōkiri te Rūnanga o Ngāti Huirapa ki Puketeraki i te karanga kia whakakahangia ngā waeture mō te hunga noho puni, i waiho para tūtae rā ki te pā tawhito, te urupā anō hoki o te iwi. Ko tā Suzi Flack, kaitiaki o te rūnanga, ko te āwangawanga kei paruparu te kāpata kai o te iwi.
Kua pakaru mai te haunga o ngāi noho puni ki tēnei tūrangahākoa i Warrington, he pā tahito nō ngā iwi o Kaitahu, Waitaha me Kātimamoe.
Hei tā Suzi Flack he Tangata Tiaki no Kati Huirapa Runaka ki Puketeraki, “I think its laziness they're going into the bushes they're not coming up to the ablution blocks or the ablution blocks may be out of paper I'm not sure.”
Ko tā Suzi Flack, kei te māharahara rātou mō te wahapū kei kōtata, he kāpata kai nā te iwi.
“Restricting the numbers, the area for campers may be a solution and putting a gate and lock and keeping it a domain for day use.”
I te wā o te raumati tōna kotahi rau ngā waka tūruhi me ngā motuka ka tū ki te wāhi nei. Hei tā Suzi he pokanga tēnei i ngā tikanga whakahaere, ā, me huri kē te tai o pōhēhē.
“I think this is the responsibility of our local coucnil the DCC because they've decided to make this place an area for the freedom campers, they're welcoming them here and saying they can stay overnight.”
Hei tā Flack me mutu te whakaparanga.
“It’s not the fault of the tourists that they don't know where the pa site is, the issue is is that they're doing it anywhere, just not in a toilet.”
E kōrero ana te iwi kāinga me te poari hapori o Waikouaiti mō te ara hei whakatikatika i tēnei āhuatanga.
