Pānui ki te iwi – Upcoming Hui

Ko te wehi ki a Ihowa te timatanga o te whakaaro nui. Ka nui te aroha ki te hunga kua tiraha, moe mai ra koutou moe mai ra. E raurangatira ma, e te iwi nui tonu o Ngati Maniapoto me o tatou karanga maha, tena koutou katoa. He karanga tenei ki te iwi nui tonu kia huihui mai tatou ki te wananga i a tatou kaupapa kawe i nga kereme ki te aroaro o te karauna no reira nau mai, haere mai.

As you will recall, in December 2016, the Maniapoto Māori Trust Board received the mandate to represent Maniapoto in Treaty settlement negotiations. Since then, significant progress has been made, with most recently the signing of Te Huatahi – Agreement in Principle with the Crown in August 2017. More information on this can be found on our website www.maniapoto.iwi.nz

We are now at the phase of initialling a deed of settlement with the Crown and looking into the future of Maniapoto once a settlement is reached. Our people need to decide what this waka should look like and will have the opportunity to vote on this when ratification is required in early 2019.

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 upcoming 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. So far, we have held two hui within the rohe; Napinapi Marae and Hia Kaitupeka Marae. 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.

Maniapoto negotiators hit the ground running

Maniapoto, e te Iwi, we have our team to negotiate the settlement of our Treaty of Waitangi claims.

Chairman Tiwha Bell said today:  “As we signalled earlier, we wanted to move quickly to appoint our negotiation team so we could hit the ground running once the mandate decision was confirmed by the Crown.

“We called for people to put their hand up and we got a strong response. As a result the board has confirmed Nanaia Mahuta, Peter Douglas and Mook Hohneck as the Maniapoto negotiation team, with Nanaia as the lead negotiator.

“We believe this is a strong team which represents the broadest cross section of Maniapoto.  Between them our negotiators have strong commercial, governance and negotiation experience and are well versed in Maniapoto history and tikanga,” Mr Bell said.

Ms Mahuta said that she had discussed her desire to be involved in the settlement of Maniapoto’s claims with Labour Party leadership.

“To avoid any real or perceived conflict of interest I have stepped down from my role as Labour’s spokesperson for Treaty of Waitangi Negotiations.  It is important mahi and I am looking forward to getting in to it.”

The team are having their first meeting with the Crown negotiator before Christmas and negotiations proper will begin in the New Year.

Maniapoto Mandate Endorsed

Maniapoto Māori Trust Board chairman, Tiwha Bell is pleased to announce that the Crown has recognised the Board’s deed of mandate to represent Maniapoto in treaty settlement negotiations.
“This is a positive step and while there is much work to be done, keeping our people updated regularly continues to be a priority” states Bell.
“Now that mandate has been confirmed, it is important to keep moving to the next milestone which is the appointment of negotiators. I encourage those who are yet to apply to submit their applications by midday Friday 16th December, and anticipate announcing those appointed next week.
We are committed to working together with all of Maniapoto, kotahitanga is paramount in moving forward so we can get the best possible outcome for our people.”

Expressions of Interest for Maniapoto Settlement Negotiators NOW OPEN

The Maniapoto Māori Trust Board have a vision for settlement to achieve the best possible outcome for Te Iwi o Maniapoto, in terms of appropriate recognition and redress. The negotiation team will conduct negotiations with the Crown on behalf of Ngāti Maniapoto, and be guided by some clear principles and protocols determined by the Trust Board.

Applications close: Friday 16th December at 12noon
