Mōkai Pātea Waitangi Claims Trust made a communication release on 4 June in an attempt to deter people from signing the Ngāti Hinemanu me Ngāti Paki Heritage Trust petition. However, they only provided select segments of information which could be misconstrued.
We now supply the information in its entirety VIEW MEDIA RESPONSE as evidence to support statements made in the petition. We ask everyone to share this information, and encourage everyone to SIGN here.
Our iwi and hapū were never asked, and so never agreed, to be part of their draft Deed Of Mandate (dDOM) which attempts to subjugate us, whilst taking our claims. This is the main drive to have Ngāti Hinemanu and Ngāti Paki (and our claims) removed from their dDOM until there is a resolution which ensures correct representation and preserves everyone’s mana motuhake.
