Hauraki Treaty Settlement

The CE has the following to say about the long-awaited Agreement:

"The Crown anticipates that the individual deeds of settlement in respect of the Hauraki
Treaty Claims will be initialled late in the third quarter of 2014 and the Collective Deed of
Settlement soon after. A ratification process will then commence with Hauraki Iwi before the
final signing of deeds of settlement, probably before the end of 2014. Included in the
Collective Deed of Settlement will be legislation to enact the various facets of the
agreements between the Crown and Iwi."


"The Crown is also discussing with Council specific issues including matters relating to
cultural and commercial redress. Direct tripartite discussions have been largely concluded
between the Council, Crown and individual Iwi in respect of cultural redress matters
particularly in relation to co-governance arrangements. These arrangements will be reflected
in the Settlement legislation."

Sam Napia has carriage of this and while there are probably many within the Iwi who are cognisant of the detail - very little has leaked out. It will surely come a considerable shock to many in due course.
