Whakatōhea hapū have told the Waitangi Tribunal that hapū and iwi could have conflicting interests over the protection of the takutai moana.

The tribunal opened its hearing at Waiwhetu Marae last week into a claim over how the Marine and Coastal Area (Takutai Moana) Act 2011 working.

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.

Four Whakatōhea hapū have lodged applications for recognition orders, separate to the claim from the Whakatōhea Māori Trust Board.
