Ngāti Paoa has become the sixth of the 12 Hauraki iwi to sign the Hauraki Collective Settlement.

The signing came despite a last-minute bid by the faction controlling the post-settlement governance entity to block it.

About 30 people gathered at Karaka Bay on Auckland's eastern edge, the same spot where Ngāti Paoa ancestors signed the Treaty of Waitangi 179 years ago.

The Ngāti Paoa Iwi trust sought an injunction this morning, too late to stop the signing.

Negotiator Morehu Wilson says it confirms the decision of the ratification process, which drew 94 percent support.

He says issues the trust has raised about overlapping claims and the commercial structures for shared ownership of Hauraki forests can be resolved by building relationships with neighbouring iwi.

Now Ngāti Paoa has signed, the other six iwi holding out may also be encouraged to put pen to paper.

If Jacinda wants to win a second term, she needs to tell us her new 100 day vision
Martyn 'Bomber'Bradbury: Last election, Andrew Little looked at the slumping polls 3 moths out from the 2017 ballot and said, 'I can't lead this Party to victory', and in the most unselfish, most progressive political move in NZ history, stood aside to allow Jacinda Ardern to become leader.
The Maaori Party could spoil Jacinda's dreams for a second term
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: The Māori Party have selected the exceptionally talented Debbie Ngarewa-Packer as their candidate in the very vulnerable seat of Te Tai Hauāuru and it represents the biggest threat to Jacinda's dreams for a second term than any other political challenge.
Why National's beneficiary bashing is really dog whistle politics
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: National has promised a spiteful range of draconian measures against beneficiaries that have nothing whatsoever to do with helping those on the benefit and everything to do with dog whistling to National's reactionary base.
