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.

In 2018, two iwi consultation hui rounds were held both within te rohe o Maniapoto and across the motu. Very informative feedback was received from those who attended. Both rounds focused on the PSGE and what that should look like. Some hui were live streamed for those who couldn’t attend, and remains on our Facebook page for viewing. Surveys were also posted online to provide another opportunity for iwi feedback.  Further hui were held last year, continuing to encourage all of our people to participate and have a say. Your whakaaro is vital and has ultimately helped shape the PSGE and our Maniapoto future.
