A new website has been set up to record commitments made as part of treaty settlements.

Māori Crown Relations: Te Arawhiti Minister Kelvin Davis says the portal is available to organisations with Treaty settlement responsibilities, including the Crown, local government, post-settlement government entities and other organisations, to search for and manage settlement commitments they are involved with.

It's called Te Haeata to signal a new beginning or dawning of a new era in the relationship between the Crown and iwi.

There are over 70 Treaty settlements to date, but until now there has been no single place to access the commitments arising from them.

Commitment holders seeking to register for access to Te Haeata can visit or email:
