Ngāti Hauā Iwi Trust

On 27 May 2013 Ngāti Hauā initialled a Deed of Settlement with the Crown to settle the Ngāti Hauā non-raupatu historical Treaty claims against the Crown. In order to meet the requirements for settlement prescribed by the Crown, a post-settlement governance entity was established to sign the Deed of Settlement and to receive and administer the settlement assets received as part of the Ngāti Hauā Treaty settlement. This entity is the Ngāti Hauā Iwi Trust.

Deed of Trust

A Deed of Trust was signed by the Initial Trustees to record the terms on which Ngati Haua Iwi Trust was established as the post-settlement governance entity to receive the settlement assets for Ngati Haua.

It is the intention of the Initial Trustees to receive the settlement redress and facilitate the transfer of settlement redress in accordance with the Ratification Booklet and the resolutions in the Ratification Booklet that were confirmed by a majority of the Adult Registered Members of Ngati Haua who voted in the Ratification Process culminating in the signing of the Ngati Haua Deed of Settlement between the Crown and the Tumuaki at Rukumoana Marae on 18 July 2013.
