Playboy playmate Jaylene Cook has scaled Mt Taranaki in a nude photo shoot, but not everyone has taken kindly to the stunt.

The glamour model, who is touring the country with her photographer boyfriend Josh Shaw, posted the photo to Instagram which has attracted more than 8000 likes.

But one Maori academic said the photo was culturally insensitive and disrespected the mountain.

"I also know cousins and relatives who will be quite upset about it. They would consider it as being disrespectful towards the mountain," Maori academic Dennis Ngawhare told Fairfax.

He said he believes iwi and hapu in Taranaki share his thoughts.

Taniwha halts work on highway

A swamp-dwelling taniwha has halted work on part of the Waikato expressway near Meremere after iwi pointed out its presence.

Transit New Zealand has ordered a stop to work on 100m of the highway project until a meeting can be held with the north Waikato hapu Ngati Naho, a subtribe of Tainui.

The taniwha is said to live near Springhill Rd, between Meremere township and Champion Raceway.

Taniwha are spiritual creatures regarded as guardians of the Waikato River. In Tainui legend a taniwha or chief is at every bend of the river.

Meremere resident Brenda Maxwell, who is not Ngati Naho, said she had warned about taniwha during consent hearings over a nearby landfill.

"We've been screaming out for two years about this. What they're doing is trying to cut costs," Ms Maxwell said. "In order to do that they're willing to trample on our culture. Get away from the swamp. It's as simple as that."

Maori believed fatal crashes common on State Highway 1 were linked to the taniwha.

Transit regional projects manager Chris Allen said consultation had thrown up several other taniwha "but this is the first time we've heard about this one".

The issue had been dealt with under the same protocols as for found human remains, and work had stopped in the immediate area.

Efforts to build the four-lane highway over the area's deep swamps have only just restarted with a $6.5 million earthworks contract.

Work on a 12km stretch across the swamps stopped in September after sinking earthworks blew the $56 million construction budget.

Faggots. Both the girl and that mountain are children of Earth. No disrepect.
If the mountain was offended, that model would have died.

The Maori believed that everything had a definite soul (wairua) and a liquid concept of spiritual “essence” (mana). Mana revealed itself in land, nature, humans and other objects. Mana seemed to be associated to contemporary concepts of nobility, power, influence, charisma, authority, prestige etc. Things which had all of these (mana) became sacred or tapu in native language. Almost anything could become tapu if it had been touched by the supernatural order. For example, fire, if lit by the priest would become tapu because the god might be brought to live in it. When a stream was used for religious rites, it also could become tapu.

Tapu could apply to people, both living and dead. Mana was stronger in men than in women, but it is noticeable fact that all males, other than slaves, were considered sacred. Slaves were important workers and could be used as human sacrifices with the aim of making a place Tapu by the shedding of their blood. Priests, or tohungas, were imbued with the mysterious essences of the tapu because of their knowledge of ancient incantations. All high chiefs also had a strong personal tapu which prevented any person eating out of the same food basket or using anything belonging to the chief. Women possessed tapu only atTohunga Tapu menstruation and during childbirth as the most sacred parts of the body were heads, back and sexual organs. The important religious events were related to tapu and death. At death the corpse was brought to Marae and then the funeral was held. If the dead person had had enough mana, people came from other tribes and villages.

It's all tapu bro
