Trust claims Tūhoe settlement will prejudice their claim

  • Waikato/Bay of Plenty

A trust which claims to represent five hapū between Ōpōtiki and Whakatāne, believes the Tūhoe settlement will prejudice their treaty claim, which is yet to be lodged.

Te Ūpokorehe lit ancestral fires near Ōhiwa this morning in protest against the Tūhoe settlement, saying they have claimed their lands, hapū and marae.
