Maori-Abgeordneter wehrt sich gegen Krawattenpflicht in Neuseelands Parlament
Ich habe die koloniale Krawatte abgenommen, als Zeichen dafür, dass sie weiter kolonisiert und die Maori-Rechte unterdrückt“, schrieb er auf Facebook.
Der Hei-Tiki ist die Krawatte meiner Wahl, er bindet mich an meine Vorfahren, mein Land und mein Volk.“
My hei-tiki is my tie of choice. It ties me to my tīpuna, whenua, and people. We have made it known that this party will not be subjugated nor assimilated to dated colonial rules.— Rawiri Waititi MP (@Rawiri_Waititi) February 9, 2021
A meeting of the committee held tonight discussed this and heard a submission from Te Paati Māori. The committee did not reach a consensus but the majority of the committee was in favour of removing a requirement for ties to be part of ‘appropriate business attire’ for males[11/]— Trevor Mallard (@SpeakerTrevor) February 10, 2021
Seems it is for show. And his cowboy hat? And suit? But political utility sees highest returns on the tie, of course, and masses who have never read Machiavelli think it’s wonderful.— theyucatanman (@theyucatanman) February 10, 2021
I know many will say that there are more important issues, but standing up against cultural alienation often starts with issues that seem unimportant to those who don't understand the meaning of cultural symbols. Kia kaha— Doug (@Dougseekswisdom) February 9, 2021
