Now that our Deed of Settlement ratification results have been approved by the Ministers, we are well underway with our plans for a Deed of Settlement Signing Ceremony later this year.

We are working toward a tentative date of Saturday 5 December, at Rangitihi Marae. We will confirm the date over the coming month, together with an overview on the day’s events.

In the meantime, we’re calling for expressions of interest from whānau who would like to attend so we can get an indication of numbers.

Please email us at [email protected] or call us on 0800 AKATEA to let us know if you think you will be able to attend.

This is a much anticipated event and we hope we can get as many as our whānau there to join in the celebrations.
