Politicians have had a chance to let their hair down at Waitangi.
Shane Jones held a party last night, as the New Zealand First MP does every year.
Newstalk ZB political reporter Aaron Dahmen told Kate Hawkesby MPs, politicians and dignitaries from Northland and across the country were there.
"It's a great opportunity for everyone to come together and talk in a social setting and have a good time, especially in a week which is full of action."
Dahmen says grievances that could be aired today include issues of water rights, Whanau Ora funding and the Ihumatao dispute.
