Past and future will meet at Ngaruawahia this week when the Government will spell out how the New Zealand Wars of 150 years ago will be marked.

Maori Development Minister Te Ururoa Flavell still talking with iwi around the country about how the $1 million a year that has been budgeted for commemorations over the next four years will be spent.

But he says Deputy Prime Minister Bill English and Culture and Heritage Minister Maggie Barry will be at the Koroneihana Hui to discuss places where Waikato Tainui ancestors fought to defend their homeland.

"In terms of Rangiriri and Orakau it is about a desire by iwi to get those pieces of land back so there may be an announcement bout that in the next couple of days at Turangawaewae," Mr Flavell says.

Koroneihana activities started this morning with a ceremony at Waahi Pa in Huntly in memory of Te Arikinui Te Ataairangikaahu, who died 10 years ago.

This afternoon King Tuheitia will be given the keys to the city of Hamilton.
