Auckland-based Ngāti Pukenga descendants will meet in Auckland today to discuss the ratification on their historic treaty claim settlement.

The Tauranga-based iwi, which also has interests in Coromandel, lost most of its land as a result of the confiscation of Bay of Plenty land in the 1860s and the subsequent actions of the Native Land Court and Crown agents.

It has been offered $5 million in commercial redress, as well as cultural redress and the promise of better relationships with government agencies.

It also shares in the Tauranga Moana collective settlement with Ngāi Te Rangi and Ngāti Ranginui.

Chairperson Rehua Smallman says while people don't seem happy with the size and scope of the settlement, they feel it is time to move on and make the best of it.

Tonight's hui at the Waipuna Conference Centre will be followed by Maketu on Friday, Whetu ō te Rangi Marae in Welcome Bay on Saturday and Manaia Marae on Sunday.

Housing flip flop
WILLIE JACKSON: It wasn’t the best 7 days for John Key who flip flopped on housing at the start of the week and was escorted into the weekend with front page news that his lawyer has been mysteriously caught up in the Panama foreign trust debacle.
Here's my response to your opinion piece on Ture Whenua.
CLAUDETTE HAUITI: Why amend? It’s pretty simple really: there are over 27,000 blocks of Māori land under Te Ture Whenua Māori Act 1993 Act, that’s 1.4 million hectares or about five percent of the total land in Aotearoa. Owners, are shackled by antiquated policy preventing them from developing their lands hence the amendment to the act.
