The AIP is non binding, without prejudice and eventuates in a Deed of Settlement that Whakatōhea iwi members get to ratify.
Negotiations Update 2 July 2017: Initial Crown Offer to Whakatōhea
An initial Crown Settlement Offer was received by the Whakatōhea negotiators on behalf of the Whakatōhea Presettlement Claims Trust in early June. Negotiations with the Crown have been focused on achieving our aspirations of mana tangata, mana whenua and mana moana. Negotiations have also focused on the Crown acknowledging the Whakatōhea experience of raupatu and Crown engagement and the construction of a settlement package that realises the Whakatōhea Transformation Framework.
The Whakatōhea Pre-Settlement Claims Trust meet every Monday evening from 5pm. Nau mai haere mai, it is an open forum for all whānau to attend. Listen, learn and kōrero about the processes to move forward in the raupatu of Whakatōhea.
The Whakatōhea Pre Settlement Claims Trust have been travelling around the country to communicate progress on our settlement negotiations. For whānau who have been unable to make it to the Roadshow Hui, you still have the opportunity to hear what has been going, as each roadshow was streamed live on Facebook
