Presentation to Minister for Treaty Settlements

Following a meeting with the Office of Treaty Settlements, Leith and our technical advisors met with Minister for Treaty of Waitangi Negotiations Christopher Finlayson in his office at the Beehive. 

We presented a video to the Minister, which covered our Ngāti Rangitihi story, our rohe, our population report, and our vision for a Tarawera Great Walk, which the Minister said he was impressed by.

It was a great opportunity for us to discuss Ngāti Rangitihi’s vision and ambitions with the Minister, and to hear from him what he needed to help progress his work with other Ministers.

We are very encouraged that the Government has announced funding for additional Great Walks in New Zealand, and one they are considering is Tarawera, so we look forward to continuing these discussions.
