Treaty settlements are an important part of Iwi development and the Māori position in our overall society. It is important that the settlement of Maoridom largest iwi, Ngāpuhi, proceed with pace. The North will definitely benefit from a settlement of this size.
There may be internal challenges but such matters ought not impede the overall progress that Ngāpuhi can make. I look forward to supporting the Ngäpuhi claims and will encourage my colleagues across the House to act in a similar fashion.
Ko te Tiriti he taonga i whaka kaupapatia ai ki te Tai Tokerau. Kua rite te wā me hohoro a Ngāpuhi ki te whakatutuki ōna take whenua, ngāhere, moana, tangata, tikanga hoki. Me aro mai anō te Karauna kia ea ai ngā moemoeā.Back to top
