The Settlement Process

The settlement of an iwi’s claims against the Crown for breaches of Te Tiriti can be a time-consuming and costly process.  The confederated iwi of Mōkai Pātea decided to undertake their claims through the Waitangi Tribunal rather than entering direct negotiations with the Crown initially.  This decision is always under review to ensure that the best outcomes can be gained for the iwi.
