Make a stand for your iwi
The current issue around overlapping claims is centred around the actions of three tribes from Thames – Te Patukirikiri, Ngāti Tamaterā and Ngāti Maru – who are claiming interests into Tauranga, Auckland and Hamilton. These claimed interests are strongly disputed by other iwi, who have voiced their opposition through protest marches to Wellington, legal action in the Supreme Court, and submissions to the United Nations.
Here is a media statement on behalf of Ngati Paoa which provides insight into more recent hui.
