The crown has today reconciliation funding agreement with the Parihaka Papakainga Trust.

Māori Development Minister Hon Nanaia Mahuta says the purpose of the $9 million package is to heal the relationship between Parihaka and the Crown, recognise the historical significance of Parihaka and provide support for the development of the community.

The settlement was founded on the slopes of Mount Taranaki in the mid-1860s by Te Whiti-o-Rongomai and Tohu Kākahi, attracting dispossessed and disillusioned Māori from around Aotearoa.

Because it was a centre for resistance to land confiscation, it was invaded by government troops in 1881 and its residents were forcibly evicted, unjustly imprisoned, their leaders arrested and held without trial, homes and sacred buildings desecrated, rapes committed and a regime imposed that deprived owners of control and ownership of their land.

Ms Mahuta says the Parihaka Papakainga Trust, in consultation with the community, and with Te Puni Kōkiri and Treasury have produced a development plan for the $9 million which begins with a focus on healing and reconciliation and the development of urgent infrastructure.
