Ngatiwai Support Signatures
Opposition to the Ngatiwai Trust Board Deed of Mandate
We the undersigned DO NOT SUPPORT the Ngatiwai Trust Board Deed of Mandate.
The Deed of Mandate has fundamental flaws in that it still fails to allow whanau hapu claimants with affiliations to Ngatiwai to prosecute their claims in the Waitangi Tribunal Stage Two Hearings - taking place right now.
The Deed of Mandate does not support hapu mana and rangatiratanga as guaranteed in He Whakaputanga me Te Tiriti o Waitangi. That the Ngatiwai Trust Board has no PSGE models or structures included in the Deed of Mandate. This direct negotiation process will potentially undermine the current Waitangi Tribunal Stage 2 Hearing process which is underway.
WE DO SUPPORT the following:
1. The claimants rights to prosecute their claims before the Waitangi Tribunal in the WAI 1040 Te Paparahi o Te Raki Inquiry.
2. That a Report and findings from the Waitangi Tribunal is essential for progressing Ngatiwai Wai claims.
3. That at the completion of the Waitangi Tribunal process that Wai Claimants then can decide on a Negotiation and settlement process that best reflects the collective desires and aspirations of Wai Claimants and whanau, hapu.
