The Waitangi Tribunal has rejected a bid by Far North iwi Ngāti Kahu to boost its treaty settlement at the expense of its Muriwhenua neighbours.

Ngāti Kahu walked out of combined negotiations and sought what is known as a resumption hearing, where the tribunal can use its powers to order the Crown to hand over land that had been transferred to state owned enterprises.

It asked for a total of $260 million in land and compensation, including former Crown properties now in private ownership.

The Tribunal found that while redress is long overdue, using binding orders would upset the fine balance of existing agreements and impending Treaty settlements of other Muriwhenua iwi.

It said what Ngāti Kahu sought was far in excess of settlements already achieved up and down the country.

The tribunal recommended a package including various forms of cultural redress, a commercial quantum based on a total figure of $42.518 million, and the return of a series of properties of significant commercial and cultural value within their rohe.

TWP 24112014 - Willie Jackson
CEO Mankau Urban Maori Authority Willie Jackson | A High Court judge had ruled that the process used to select one of the maataka representatives on Aucklands Independent Maori Statutory Board was flawed and needed to be done again. He said in picking incumbent member Tony Kake over Willie Jackson, the selection panel which only included mana whenua representatives failed to show it had considered mataawaka views.

Little's Time
OPINION: Andrew Little has to do a lot if he is to make Labour a formidable opposition, giving them any hope of toppling National in three years’ time. Little was on Tuesday voted as the man to lead Labour into a new era of politics - this was on the back of major support he got from his union mates.
The myths white people tell themselves
OPINION: John Key's extraordinary statements last week on NZ History in relation to the Waitangi Tribunal's finding that Maori did not cede sovereignty when they signed the Treaty in 1840 is a case study in ignorance, cultural arrogance and political posturing.
Waitangi Tribunal ruling enshrines Treaty as a living document
OPINION: The most significant thing about the Waitangi Tribunal ruling last week that Maori did not sign away Tino Rangatiratanga in 1840 is that it has reset with immediacy the role of the Treaty into the modern day.
