Corina Norman and the Dharug Ngurra have been in discussions with the Sydney Marae Alliance since 2015. A hui was held between the two parties in 2019 where the Dharug Ngurra would accept to have a whare where Māori and Aboriginal peoples could congregate to celebrate. However, in February this year the SMA applied to the Council to hold a Waitangi Day celebration. "We were very, very hurt when we saw that" says Norman as she recalls events that have transpired into an unfortunate situation.
