Attempts to find a way to resume Ngapuhi settlement talks have hit turbulence, with an opposition leader rejecting a proposed solution developed over the past few months.

Te Kotahitanga o Nga Hapu o Ngapuhi co-chairs Pita Tipene and Rudy Taylor, along with Hone Sadler and Sonny Tau from mandated negotiating body Tuhoronuku, have held six meetings with Treaty of Waitangi Negotiations Minister Andrew Little in a effort to move the claim forward.

Mr Tipene doesn't think the proposal goes far enough, and when technical advisor Jason Pou presented it to a Te Kotahitanga hui at Mangakahia yesterday it was rejected.

"The Minister put to our group that there would be one entity to negotiate on behalf of all of Ngapuhi and in fact one entity to receive all of the cash quantum for all the people of Ngapuhi. Rudy and I have said from the get go that would be unacceptable," he says.

Mr Tipene says Minister Little will face strong opposition when he comes north next week to present the proposal.
