Mana Ahuriri Incorporated Deed of Settlement Signing

The Minister for Treaty of Waitangi Negotiations, the Honorable Christopher Finlayson signed our Deed of Settlement (DOS) on the 2nd November 2016 in Wellington at Parliament House.

The settlement provides an acknowledgement, apology and redress for the Crown’s historical breaches of the Treaty of Waitangi.

Financial and commercial redress includes $19.5 million and the right to buy shares in the Kaweka and Gwavas Crown Forest Licensed lands. Pakake, Heipipi Pa Historic Reserve and Conservation House in Napier will be vested in Ahuriri Hapū as part of their cultural redress.

The settlement will also establish a permanent statutory committee called Te Komiti Muriwai o Te Whanga to protect and enhance the environmental, economic, social, spiritual, historical and cultural values of Te Muriwai o Te Whanga (Ahuriri Estuary) for present and future generations.

Here are some photographs of the whanau that attended the signing of the Deed of Settlement, another significant day in the history of our people.
