You are Here : Our Settlement  >  Ratification

Ratification Stage

Now that the package has been agreed to by Ngāti Hinerangi Trust, it's now time to bring it to you - our whānau. This Treaty Settlement will only move forward if our people agree with what our team has now spent years negotiating. It has not been easy road, it has been been a smooth one but we have made it to this very important stage.

If you're a registered member of Ngāti Hinerangi already, you will have received a voting pack. Voting closes on 8 March, 2019. Hear some of our whānau from Te Ōhākī, Tangata, Hinerangi Tāwhaki and Tamapango Marae explain the importance of being a part of the Ratification vote.


When voting during the Ratification stage, you will be asked to agree or disagree on the following:


1. I, as a member of Ngāti Hinerangi Iwi, agree to accept the Ngāti Hinerangi Deed of Settlement.

2. I, as a member of Ngāti Hinerangi Iwi, agree that Te Puāwaitanga o Ngāti Hinerangi Iwi Trust sign the Deed of Settlement on behalf of Ngāti Hinerangi Iwi.

3. I, as a member of Ngāti Hinerangi Iwi, agree that Te Puāwaitanga o Ngāti Hinerangi Iwi Trust will be the post-settlement governance entity to receive, hold and manage the Ngāti Hinerangi historical Treaty of Waitangi settlement redress.

We're currently in the process of carrying out Ratification Information Hui so we can talk you through the settlement package. If you're a registered member or want to be, come along this Saturday, 23 February at Papakura RSA in Auckland from noon-2pm. If you can't make it along, check out the presentation below.

Feel free to email us at info.ngatihinerangiiwi@gmail.com if you need any more information on what you see here. 


You will have all the material you need to understand the package and make an informed decision. The rest is up to you but Ngāti Hinerangi Trust encourages our whānau to please agree with the package and help us move forward into a bright and exciting future for the people of Ngāti Hinerangi.

Vote here from today!
