updated

Ko tā te Kaporeihana ā porihanga o Ngāi Te Hapū i whati te karauna i te Tiriti o Waitangi na to rātou whakaae ki waenga o ngā kaipupuri o te Rena i tēnei wā he rua tekau mā whitu ira ono miriona taara.

Kua whakatahahia e ngā kaipupuri ki te karauna mō ngā kaupapa whakapai i te RENA, tāpiri i te tekau ira whā miriona taara kia waiho atu te Rena ki Otaiti.

Hei tā Buddy Mikaere, “Kāre rātou i kōrero ki a tātau, kei te tautoko kē te karauna i te kamupene nō tāwāhi, nō rātou te parekuratanga ā taiao nui rawa me te hiahia kia noho te tekau ira wha hei utu.”

I roto i ngā rā e toru ka whai wāhi te iwi ki te whakatakoto i o rātou māharahara ki te rōpū Whakamana i te Tiriti o Waitangi me te manako ia kia aro ki ngā whakahau mai a taraipuinara.
