Our Agreement in Principle

Te Mana o Ngāti Rangitihi Trust was established in 2008 as the Post-Settlement Governance Entity representing Ngāti Rangitihi in the Central North Island Forest Iwi Collective Settlement.

Our journey since then has seen Ngāti Rangitihi give us the mandate in 2014 to represent Ngāti Rangitihi in our negotiations with the Crown to comprehensively settle all of our historical Treaty of Waitangi claims.

We signed our Agreement in Principle (AIP) in December 2018. This was a momentous occasion and followed years of discussions with the Crown. It is this AIP which forms the basis of a future Deed of Settlement which we hope to bring to the people of Ngāti Rangitihi to vote on in 2020.
