Waitangi Tribunal Updates

Kia ora whānau,

The hope with establishing this page within our website is to provide our wider iwi membership with ongoing correspondence within the Treaty Claims space here on the coast, and within the Manawatu ki Porirua District.

Please click on the link to view the electronic copy of the Ngātiawa Te Āti Awa Research needs Scoping Report as at 18 January 2016 prepared by the Researcher Tony Walzl. The introduction reads…

Introduction (taken from report)
On 1 April 2015, the Presiding Officer of the Waitangi Tribunal for the Porirua ki Manawatū District Inquiry issued directions that a scoping report be commissioned to assess the research needs of Ngātiawa ki Kāpiti Coast and Ngātiawa/Te Āti Awa mai i Kukutauaki ki Whareroa claimants.1 This scoping report has been completed at a time when the claimants and the research within the Inquiry District are in transition and development. Therefore, this report represents the current situation with the stated claims, but also tries to anticipate the outcome of likely developments over the next six months to a year. It is necessary to do this otherwise the risk would be that the recommendations of the scoping report may soon become outdated and redundant.
