Ratification and Implementation

Although there may be a Deed of Settlement, it cannot be formally signed until the agreement is ratified by te Iwi o Maniapoto. Each of us will have a chance to review the agreement, and vote to accept or reject the proposed settlement. If this vote to ratify is successful, then the agreement is signed. The next steps will be for the new governance entity to work with the Crown to implement the settlement, developing and distributing a detailed plan on how they intend to do this. In addition, legislation has to be passed in Parliament to confirm the Crown’s commitment.

A Post Settlement Governance Entity (PSGE) will be created, to lead the iwi into the exciting times ahead. Your input on what this should look like is of utmost importance, so we invite you to attend our hui this year that focuses on the future of Maniapoto me ōna hapū maha

As shown below, these hui will be held both within te rohe o Maniapoto and across the motu. Earlier this year, we held the first round of hui in April and received very informative feedback from those who attended. This next round continues to focus on a PSGE and what that should look like. Some hui will be live streamed for those who cant attend, and will remain on our Facebook page to watch at a later date. Surveys will also be posted online to provide another opportunity for iwi feedback.  We encourage all of our people to participate and have your say. Your whakaaro is vital and will ultimately help shape the PSGE and our Maniapoto future.
