Treaty Settlement Achievements

4 August 2005

Treaty Settlement Achievements

Labour has made great progress on Treaty settlements.

This includes:

- eight deeds of settlement signed between the Crown and iwi
- seven Settlement Acts passed into law
- four Agreements in Principle signed between Crown and iwi.

Deeds of Settlement have been reached with a number of groups that the previous National government couldn’t reach agreement with, such as Ngati Awa, Ngati Tuwharetoa ki Kawerau, Ngati Tama and Ngati Ruanui.

Dialogue continues with more than 26 groups – this is evidence of more and more groups wanting to focus on resolving grievances and moving forwards.
