A milestone for our settlement

On 22 March this year, we marked an important milestone in our Ngāti Kahungunu ki Wairarapa Tāmaki Nui-a-Rua Treaty settlement journey, and we are pleased to share this news with you.

In March we received the draft Deed of Settlement, initialled by the Crown, to consider whether it reflected the best agreement for our people. The Trustees of the Ngāti Kahungunu ki Wairarapa Tāmaki Nui-a-Rua Settlement Trust, made the decision to initial the draft Deed on behalf of Ngāti Kahungunu ki Wairarapa Tāmaki Nui-a-Rua.

Our old people started this journey, our kaumātua and kuia organised and researched the claims for decades, and some of them are no longer with us. We have fought long and hard for this, and today marks an important day in uniting us together, for our future.

The next steps in this journey are even more important. Now that the draft Deed of Settlement has been initialled, the Trust will soon be sharing the proposed settlement with you – our registered iwi members – to consider and then to vote on. It will be up to you, our people, to decide whether the settlement goes ahead or not. Make sure you are registered so you can have your say.

The draft Deed of Settlement documents can be found on the Office of Treaty Settlements website here.
