The Government has agreed in principle to a $21.7 million settlement with Te Korowai o Wainuiarua, which covers upper Whanganui River hapu affliating to Uenuku, Tamakana, and Tamahaki.

Treaty of Waitangi Negotiations Minister Andrew Little says the agreement signed on Friday is an important step in the settlement of the their claims.

He says within a short space of time in the late 1800s the hapu lost large tracts of ancestral land to the construction of the main trunk line and subsequent logging of the great Waimarino forests.

The package includes Crown acknowledgments of its Treaty breaches, financial and commercial redress, and the return of sites of cultural significance.

Dr Rawiri Taonui: Those who apply a cultural double standard to condemn indigenous art as obscene while ignorant of their own tradition are the sorts of people who refer to sexual intercourse as having a naughty.
