Waitangi Tribunal Tauranga Moana inquiry

23 May 2006

Waitangi Tribunal Tauranga Moana inquiry - stage two

The Waitangi Tribunal will hear stage two of the Tauranga Moana district inquiry in five hearings between May and December 2006. The first hearing will be held at Maungatapu marae in Tauranga on the week beginning Monday 29 May.

The inquiry involves around 60 claims and extends from Athenree to Papamoa (north to south) and from the Kaimai ranges to the coast (west to east). This is the boundary established in the Tauranga District Lands Act, 1868. The inquiry district also includes the offshore islands Motiti and Tuhua (Mayor Island).

The Tribunal previously reported on stage one issues in August 2004 – in Te Raupatu o Tauranga Moana: Report on the Tauranga Confiscation Claims, which covered war and land confiscation issues in Tauranga Moana up to 1886. The upcoming hearings cover the period from 1886 to the end of the twentieth century, and will investigate what happened to the remaining land and people in Tauranga after the war and land confiscations.
