Hapū claimants allege the procedural arrangements and resources provided by the Crown under the Act prejudice their attempts to have their rights recognised.

Te Ringahuia Hata from Ngāti Ira says the tribunal and the crown need to start talking to the right people.

She says hapū are trying protect their rights not just from the crown but from other iwi entities laying blanket claims to protect their relationship with councils for harbour development initiatives commercial enterprises.
