Cross claims a way of life says Majurey
Overlapping claims are a way of life for Treaty of Waitangi Settlements says a leading tribal negotiator.
Hauraki Collective Negotiator and Lawyer Paul Majurey has filed a cross claim in Tauranga Moana asserting the collective has rights that stretch from Matakana north of Auckland to Matakana Island in the Tauranga harbour.
The Hauraki cross claim has Crown support.
Paul Majurey says their claim come off the back of years of research.
" Where we are now is the result of a lot of hard work by our elders and the people here now to reach settlement. All tribes want settlement. This dynamic of cross claims overlapping claims it's not new it'll be there for all the settlements." Paul Majurey Hauraki Collective.
