The taniwha needs bribing before the white mofo dam proceeds

An iwi opposed to the Ruataniwha dam says if the scheme proceeds it should be scaled back by a third

Consultation on the proposal had been insufficient, the iwi says

That didn't take long.  A stone age mythical taniwha has reared its ugly head in the dam proceedings and is hungry for a bribe koha.

users charged a 5c per cubic metre levy to mitigate the ... cultural effects of the project

such monies to be used for iwi/hapu cultural monitoring and kaitiakitanga [guardianship] purposes

'We want our race based cut' is the cry or no dam.  Never ceases to amaze that money will assuage all matters cultural.  Was always going to happen, just the price of accommodating these cultural whores needed to be set.
