Reaching an Agreement in Principle

On 12 December, 2015, Ngāti Hinerangi Trust signed an Agreement in Principle (AIP) with the Crown, step four in the six major steps toward completing a Treaty of Waitangi Settlement. This signing took place as part of a special ceremony at Hinerangi Tāwhaki Marae in Ōkauia. 

An AIP signifies that the Crown and the iwi have broadly agreed to items that that will make up the final redress/settlement package at the end of negotiations. 

During the AIP stage, it was agreed Ngāti Hinerangi will receive financial compensation of $8.1million.
