This may need some discussion with the marae trustees on a wider scope than just the chairman. You could ask for a special meeting of the marae trust and put this issue to the meeting. It could even be a matter you could take to the Maori land Court. So my suggestion is to take this wider than the chairman, and try to resolve with a special meeting of the trustees and then if you cannot agree, to the Maori land Court

Customer
its happening to all marae, the marae is our marae principal home, its irrelevant that its a gang that's a discrimination breach of my rights isn't it?
