Treaty settlements topped up
An adjustment payment has been made to Waikato-Tainui and Ngāi Tahu under the relativity mechanisms in their 1995 and 1997 Treaty of Waitangi settlements.
The mechanism ensures Waikato Tainui’s share of the overall treaty settlement process remains at 17 percent and Ngāi Tahu at 16.1 percent.
Treaty of Waitangi Negotiations Minister Andrew Little says the latest payments of 2.7 million and $2.6 million respectively mostly relate to the resolution of some disputes concerning the first relativity mechanism payments made in 2012.
