MEDIA RELEASE: Iwi Pleased with Government Decision to Develop a Plan of Action for Indigenous Rights

“Iwi are pleased that Government has decided to work in partnership with us to develop a plan to implement the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples,” said National Iwi Chairs spokesperson Professor Margaret Mutu.

“In addition to building and strengthening relations between the Crown and Rangatira, a national plan of action will improve outcomes for our whānau and all New Zealanders. We have wanted this to happen since government gave its support for the Declaration in 2010 and we acknowledge the leadership provided by Minister Mahuta to make it a reality.”

“Many of our whānau were involved in the development of the Declaration and this decision by Government will put a smile on their faces. We look forward to the work that is in front of us,” Professor Mutu concluded.
