Who is Te Rōpū Tūhono?
Te Rōpū Tūhono was formed in February 2018 to lead the negotiations relating to the Ngāpuhi Treaty settlement with the Crown.
Previous negotiations were being managed by Tūhoronuku Independent Mandated Authority (TIMA) however some people were concerned that the TIMA model did not appropriately provide for Hapū rangatiratanga.
After listening to feedback, an engagement group was formed which comprised the Tūhoronuku Independent Mandated Authority (TIMA) and Te Kotahitanga ō Ngā Hapū ō Ngāpuhi (Te Kotahitanga) leaders. Thus, Te Rōpū Tūhono was born.
As yet, there is no settlement in place for Ngāpuhi. This is a mandate for new bodies to negotiate settlement redress - not to receive settlement redress.
We are at the tipping point where, with your support and vote, we can start to these negotiations for the betterment of everyone.
