Te Ākitai Waiohua Treaty Settlement Update

The voting and ratification process for the Tamaki Makaurau Collective Treaty Settlement concluded with more than half of the registered members of Te ĀkitaiWaiohua participating in the voting process. Those that did vote showed overwhelming support in favour of the settlement - over 90% of participants voted 'yes' to the settlement and PSGE. 

The position of Te Ākitai Waiohua had to be revised due to events leading up to the original planned signing of the Collective Deed of Settlement in early September. This led to an exhaustive process of consultation and dialogue with various parties including the people of Te Ākitai Waiohua.  

At the end of this process, the signing of the Collective Deed of Settlement and the Terms of Negotiation for Te Ākitai Waiohua occurred in Wellington on Tuesday 4 December 2012 between the negotiators of Te Ākitai Waiohua Iwi Authority and the Hon Christopher Finlayson, Minister for Treaty of Waitangi Negotiations.
