Overwhelming support for Ngāti Rangi treaty settlement package 

Ngāti Rangi uri have given an overwhelming endorsement of the Crown’s offer to settle the iwi’s historical Treaty of Waitangi claims. 

The Minister for Treaty of Waitangi Negotiations and Minister of Māori Development have now considered the results and agreed there is sufficient support from Ngāti Rangi uri to proceed to signing the Ngāti Rangi Deed of Settlement, Rukutia Te Mana. 

Rukutia Te Mana includes the Crown’s acknowledgement of numerous breaches of the Treaty of Waitangi, an agreed historical account and an apology from the Crown for those breaches.  It also includes cultural redress covering lands significant to Ngāti Rangi, including the return of the lakes at Rotokura. 

Iwi members were asked to cast two votes through the independent returning officer at electionz.com.  The first; whether, or not, to accept the Crown’s settlement offer and the second; whether, or not, to accept the proposed Post Settlement Governance Entity (PSGE) called Te Tōtarahoe o Paerangi to manage the settlement and iwi affairs. Voter turnout was just under 42-percent which is relatively high for Treaty settlement ratification votes and the results were a resounding endorsement for the settlement with 99-percent of uri voting in favour of the settlement, and 97 percent for the proposed PSGE.

Ngāti Rangi Iwi Trust Chair Shar Amner said he was delighted with the result.  
“This gives us confidence to move forward to the next stage with the Crown. A huge amount of work has gone into the negotiations and it’s humbling and very satisfying to have our people support this mahi so strongly. For now, we will take a moment to celebrate the result, enjoy the Christmas break with whānau and recharge the batteries; as 2018 is going to be a busy and exciting year for Ngāti Rangi and our community,” Mr Amner said.

The Deed of Settlement will be signed with a formal ceremony early next year (2018). Uri will be advised as soon as this is confirmed.

Ngāti Rangi initials a Deed of Settlement 

From Ngāti Rangi Trust

Ngāti Rangi tēnā koutou, tēnā tātau.

Tākiri ana te rā ki runga o Ruapehu tāngata, ki a Ngāti Rangi e mea ana:
Kia hiwa rā!
Kia hiwa rā!

Katahi tonu nei a Ngāti Rangi ka whakaae, ka waitohu i tōna whakataunga Tiriti kua whakaingoatia, ko Rukutia te Mana.  Tēnei te pō, nau mai te ao.

A small group of representatives from Ngāti Rangi gathered on Thursday, 17 August 2017, at Parliament to witness the initialling of  a Deed of Settlement (Deed) in respect of Ngāti Rangi’s historical Te Tiriti o Waitangi/Treaty of Waitangi claims.   The claims relate to Crown breaches of the Treaty that occurred prior to 21 September 1992.  

The Deed is subject to ratification by the members of Ngāti Rangi.  This is likely to occur in late September and early October.  If there is sufficient support from Ngāti Rangi for the Deed it will be signed on behalf of Ngāti Rangi and the Crown and settlement legislation will be introduced to Parliament to give effect to the Deed.

Ngāti Rangi Lead Negotiator, Che Wilson, said after the initialling ceremony:
“Today we have taken another important step in our journey to have the Crown both recognise and right the Treaty breaches Ngāti Rangi suffered.
“However, it is just the next step following on from our Agreement in Principle signing in March this year.
“There are still a few more steps to take before the process is completed, including, most significantly, ratification by uri before it becomes legislation and we can celebrate.
“There is still work to be done but we are delighted to be at Parliament today to celebrate this achievement in order to release the Deed to our people for their consideration,“ Mr Wilson said.
Ngāti Rangi will also be part of collective negotiations in respect of the Tongariro National Park, which are due to commence next year.

He oranga ngākau, he pikinga wairua.
Ka pō, ka ao, ka awatea, tihei mouri ora!

Ngāti Rangi Agreement in Principle – Signing Ceremony

Over the last two years, Ngāti Rangi’s negotiation team have been progressing negotiations with the Crown towards an Agreement in Principle for the settlement of Ngāti Rangi’s historical Treaty of Waitangi claims.

We are pleased to inform you that, the signing ceremony for the Ngāti Rangi Agreement in Principle will be held on Wednesday 15 March, 12.15pm in the Banquet Hall, the Beehive, Wellington.

An Agreement in Principle is a standard document in the Treaty negotiations process and will be signed by the Ngāti Rangi Trust and the Crown.  This is a significant milestone in Ngāti Rangi’s journey to settlement; however, it is not the end of the journey. There is still more work to do in the months ahead to agree a Deed of Settlement with the Crown.

We sincerely apologise for the very short notice, but the final date and time for the Agreement in Principle signing had only been confirmed late this afternoon.
