We are less than two weeks away from the much-anticipated Deed of Settlement signing ceremony! Thank you to all those who have registered to attend the event, we appreciate you taking the time to let us know.

Please RSVP
For those who have yet to confirm your attendance, you now have four days left to RSVP, as registrations for the event close on 30 November. Registration to attend the signing is compulsory (for catering and contact tracing purposes), so please RSVP by emailing [email protected] or calling us on 0800 AKATEA.

Due to the huge amount of people expected to attend, we have had to put restrictions on parking. Ngāti Rangitihi whānau attending will need to park at 11 Wilson Street, Matatā where we will have transportation running from 9.00am-11.45am and then from 3pm-7pm to and from the Marae.

Join us for this significant occasion! 
Following the signing, and there will be kai, entertainment and activities for all to enjoy. We will be showcasing Ngāti Rangitihi talent with an art exhibition and presenting a photo display of Ngāti Rangitihi uri and our beautiful whenua and awa to feature on the day (please send through photos you would like displayed to [email protected] or bring them to the office to be scanned).

Due to the scale of the event, we will now be unable to run a full livestream. However, in the week following the event, we will be making a highlights video and video of the speeches available to view on YouTube, Facebook and our webiste for whānau who were unable to attend in person. We look forward to seeing you there whānau!

It will be a truly memorable day for our iwi, a chance to come together as whānau and celebrate the next milestone in our journey.
