The Whanganui Land Settlement Negotiation Trust has signed an agreement in principle with the Crown that recognises the importance of values to the iwi.

The settlement covers iwi and hapū in the southern reaches of the Whanganui River and Whanganui city.

It includes a $30 million financial redress package and a range of commercial and cultural instruments, including potential vestings of 22 cultural redress properties, statutory acknowledgements over 13 conservation sites, and deeds of recognition over six conservation sites.

Treaty of Waitangi Negotiations Minister Andrew Little says a critical feature is formal acknowledgement of Te Tomokanga ki Te Matapihi - Whanganui land settlement values.

Crown agencies will be asked to consider how they might give life to those values in the development of redress.

It was an ugly 'joke' that shouted white privilege, but calls to boycott the ODT, sack the cartoonist and the enormous social media wave of fury seem to me to be grotesquely misplaced.
