Taranaki Whānui E Tū

Strong. Connected. Prosperous

Whatungarongaro he Tangata, Toitū te Whenua - As Man Disappears the Land Remains

The recent sale of Shelly Bay and the secret sale of Waiwhetū School in 2012 highlights that the Port Nicholson Block Settlement Trust is not only unwilling but incapable of engaging with us – their members, on matters which relate to our aspirations but more importantly our rights as Taranaki Whānui. Nor have the Trust considered any alternatives.

They sold the birth right of our mokopuna and any opportunity to build homes for our kaumātua and our young families - they have stripped us of our Turangawaewae.

Whenua returned (whether through settlement or purchase) are the things our Tupuna fought for over the past 150 years - this is their legacy to us - their uri. Therefore, any sales, land transfers, land disposals or joint ventures etc. that involves our whenua and the mana of our people must be taken back to our marae and our meeting places for kōrero and decision. This is how our people have always done it, and today in Te Ao Pākehā we just so happen to call this ‘Good Governance’.

As members of Taranaki Whānui, we stand and uphold the identity and values of our Tupuna. Therefore it is only us - the owners - who will make the final decision on any business deal involving our land - not our trustees whom at this time have not been given the authority by the people to risk the loss of our land forever.

Therefore, we - Taranaki Whānui E Tū are seeking your support in signing your full name (you must be a member of PNBST) to this petition, and by doing so you agree that:

“The Port Nicholson Block Settlement Trust has brought the mana of Taranaki Whānui and the Trust into disrepute, through their non-engagement and non-disclosure about the sale/disposal of Shelly Bay lands to you the owners”.

    This sale was already democratically defeated in March. Sneaking this through the back door piece by piece is a dishonest way to serve your members. Not good.
