A report prepared as part of Ngapuhi’s treaty claims process says the Northland iwi did not sign away their sovereignty to the British Crown.

The independent report was commissioned by Nuki Aldridge and Titewhai Harawira on behalf of the kuia and kaumatua of Ngapuhi Nui Tonu, and draws on the evidence presented to the Waitangi Tribunal in 2010 and 2011.

It was written by academics Susan Healy, Ingrid Huygens, and Takawai Murphy, with help from Hori Parata.

They say the evidence shows the rangatira wanted the Crown to provide a Governor who would take charge of its unruly British subjects living here.

Mrs Harawira says the 1835 Declaration of Independence and the 1840 Treaty of Waitangi were the result of the friendship that Ngapuhi rangatira had with British royalty that began in 1820 with the visit by Hongi Hika and Waikato.

She says they opened a dialogue with the Crown that today’s Ngapuhi want to continue.
