As you are aware, Taranaki Iwi signed a Letter of Agreement with the Crown in December 2012 recording matters to be further explored and negotiated towards a Deed of Settlement. You will also be aware that we are currently engaged in the ratification process for the establishment of a new Post-Settlement Governance Entity (“PSGE”) for Taranaki Iwi. Following the PSGE ratification process it is the intention of the Taranaki Iwi Trust to work with our marae/pā and hapū in further developing and understanding our Taranaki Iwi settlement redress package with the Crown.
Preliminary mahi has been undertaken by the Taranaki Iwi Trust and Claims Leadership Team in assessing and analysing the Crown properties and other redress mechanisms on offer from the Crown within our Taranaki Iwi rohe. As much of this information as we are able to share (subject to confidentiality agreements with the Crown) will be shared as formal negotiations progress.
Updated information on our Taranaki Iwi progress towards a Deed of Settlement with the Crown will be posted as it comes to hand. Please keep visiting the website for information on upcoming hui a-iwi and wananga.
