Lead negotiator Jamie Tuuta says the name change for the mountain and Egmont National Park is part of discussions with the crown.

Since 1986 the New Zealand Geographic Board has officially maintained Mt Taranaki and Mt Egmont as interchangeable names for the maunga.

The eight iwi are also keen to see the mountain become a legal personality with the same protections as a 'legal personaility' and be recognised before the law, similar to the status given to the Whanganui River in 2017.

Mr Tuuta says as well as negotiating with the crown, Nga Iwi o Taranaki negotiators are talking with Taranaki whanau, hapu and iwi about what sort of joint management structures they want to see that reflects a whole of mountain strategy regarding all activity on Mt Taranaki.
