Ngāti Haua in the King Country is a step closer to resolving their treaty claims after initialling their Deed of Settlement with the Crown today in Hamilton.

Their claims stem back to land invasions in 1863 and Ngati Haua is the first from outside of the 95 Waikato Tainui Raupatu Claim to reach this milestone.
