A collective redress deed for Pare Hauraki, a collective of 12 iwi, was signed at Parliament in August 2018, which followed a series of public protests - including two to Parliament - led by Ngāi Te Rangi.
In December, a Treaty of Waitangi Tribunal report slammed the Crown's handling of overlapping claims in the Pare Hauraki settlement, finding the Crown had not adhered to Treaty principles, used an "ad hoc, opaque and ever-changing pool of settlement practices", rushed the process at the expense of due process and created fresh grievances between iwi.
At the time, Treaty Negotiations Minister Andrew Little said he accepted the tribunal's criticisms of the Crown's practices and the Crown would seek to work with both Tauranga Moana and Pare Hauraki to arrange a tikanga-based process.
Tauranga Moana and Hauraki kaumātua are working towards mending the relationship between their iwi groups caused by the Crown's approach to Treaty negotiations.
But efforts to meet as part of the first steps towards improving relationships, have been put on hold for the second time due to Covid-19.
The conflicted relationship was provoked by the Crown's handling of the Pare Hauraki Treaty settlement and overlapping claims.
Originally planned for earlier this year, the tikanga-based hui between Kaumātua had to be postponed due to Covid-19 lockdown restrictions and was rescheduled for August 19th.
However, to ensure the safety of iwi elders as more cases of coronavirus are recorded, it did not proceed for the second time.
A new meeting between the groups will be rescheduled when New Zealand goes back to Covid-19 alert level 1.
While a resolution of these longstanding issues is important the safety and well being of our elders must take priority.
