Non-Maori are being urged not to fear co-governance arrangements.

It comes as the Government's set to consider the next steps in developing a plan around Maori self-determination.

Cabinet is due to be handed feedback from Maori on the UN's declaration on the rights of indigenous peoples.

Consultation included talks around the He Puapua document, which suggests co-governance and Maori-run arrangements to address huge inequities facing Maori.

National Maori Authority Chairman Matthew Tukaki told Mike Hosking there's nothing to be concerned about.

He says it's all about trying to reverse negative statistics on Maori.
