Hastings journalist Mike Butler claims the Crown should
receive a refund from Ngai Tahu rather than having to pay out
more and more.
The Crown has signed a multi-million dollar Treaty of
Waitangi settlement for historical claims with upper South
Island iwi Ngati Rarua in Blenheim today.
Dean Cowie reviews progress on historic Treaty of Waitangi
claims; what has been achieved, what has changed and what
might still happen.
National days around the world are often full of pride.
The Crown has signed two settlement agreements in Kaitaia
this weekend worth more than $50 million for outstanding
historical Treaty claims with Northland iwi Te Hiku.
Honouring the Treaty of Waitangi means upholding the law,
writes Joseph Dougherty of Dunedin.
The Government is on the brink of a $1 billion Treaty
settlement threshold which, once triggered, will entitle
Waikato-Tainui and Ngai Tahu to extra multimillion-dollar
payouts linked to their historic deals.
Waitangi Day is what we make of it, says Race Relations
Commissioner Joris de Bres.
Even before Parliament reassembles for the year, the
temperature of politics rises.
Maori political leaders are urging iwi to object strongly to
suggestions the Government will not include protection of
Treaty of Waitangi rights in planned legislation on partial
state asset sales.
