Negotiations Update

Tēnā Koutou e te whānau!

We are now at a critical stage of the AIP phase, and uri engagement is important. We want you all to be a part of this journey and we appreciate your enthusiastic participation and support for the claims kaupapa so far.

Our discussions with the Crown still focus on the numbers of Ngāti Maru uri registered with us. Please continue to follow up with your whananunga and have them sign onto the register.


We are offering several opportunities to contribute to this process, including regular Consultation Hui at various locations and large bi-monthly wānanga at Tarata. Make sure you put these important dates (below) in your diaries whanau as they are not to be missed!


We have generated a survey as another platform to gain your feedback on the Post Settlement Governance Entity Structuring. There are 8 multi-choice questions, please do this whanau as it only takes 2-3 minutes! Please have a look at it whanau as your feedback is so important to us!

The survey can be found here.


We held three hui over the month of April: The hui were a great opportunity for the Negotiation Team to hear your varying views. I would like to send a big mihi out to those that hosted us in Waiwhetu, Taumaranui and New Plymouth. We have enjoyed the opportunity to maintain whanau connections across our BIG rohe!

It is so important that you come to these events so make sure you keep up to date with our social media, website and monthly epānui for more information!

Ngā mihi,
