Mayor hails historic step for Tāmaki Makaurau mana whenua

The Mayor has welcomed the next step in the historic Tamaki Collective settlement.

The Ngā Mana Whenua o Tāmaki Makaurau Collective Redress Bill was introduced to Parliament today for its first reading.

The Tāmaki Collective provides collective redress for the shared interests of Ngā Mana Whenua o Tāmaki Makaurau, 13 iwi and hapū, in relation to specific tūpuna maunga (volcanic cones), motu (islands) and lands.

“Tāmaki Makaurau iwi and hapū have worked together in an unprecedented way, with Auckland Council and the Crown, to secure the maunga and motu for generations to come,” says Len Brown.

“Our maunga and motu are deeply important to all Aucklanders, mana whenua and others and this secures the future of our iconic landscape and our historical, cultural and spiritual heritage sites, along with public access and use rights.”

Once enacted, the settlement will vest the ownership of 14 maunga, currently held by the Crown, in the Tāmaki Collective.

The volcanic cones will be co-governed by a body made up of representatives of Auckland Council, the Tāmaki Collective and the Crown, for the express benefit of mana whenua and all the people of Auckland.

There will be no changes to existing public access and use rights. Recreational use, reserve status, and third party rights including infrastructure, buildings and leases will be maintained.
