He rīhitanga kua whakaritea ki wāenga i a Ngāpuhi me te Kaunihera a rohe mō Ngawha

  • Te Tai Tokerau

Neke atu i te tekau mano eka o tēnei wahi i riro katoa i roto i ngā tahae me ngā mahi whakawai a te karauna i tera atu rautau. A, katahi ano ka whakaae te kawana a rohe kia rīhingia mai he kotahi eka ki tahaki mai i te kotahi eka e puriti tonutia ana e te iwi.

Kua roa kē a Ngāpuhi e whēke ana kia whakahokia ngā whenua o Ngāwhā ki a rātou.  Horekau anō tērā wawata kia tutuki noa engari kua tata ake rātou ki taua whainga nō te rīhitanga o ngā puna wai o reira ki ngā uri whakaheke.

Hei tā Sonny Tau, “He kaupapa ta matou kua oti kē te habnga he rautaki kit e whakapaipai I ngā wāhi rā engari ko te mea nui ko taua whenua.  Kia hoki mai ēna whenua kia matou katahi ano mātou ka hari. E kore mātou e hari I tēnei wā tonu I te mea kei raro tonu I te whakahaere o te kaunihera pokokohua ma.”
