11 Sept 2015 the Waitangi Tribunal released their report into the Tuhoronuku Mandate finding its was - fundamentally flawed and recommending ways its could be remedied.

Te Runanga a Iwi o Ngapuhi ("TRAION") and Tuhoronuku have pushed ahead trying to advance a Ngapuhi settlement despite ongoing hapu and claimant opposition. Te Runanga a Iwi o Ngapuhi and its leadership maintain that they must be a part of the Ngapuhi settlement entity - Tuhoronuku.

Sonny Tau is convicted for perverting the course of justice and hunting a protected species. Yet the Runanga Trustees retain him as the Chair of Te Runanga a Iwi o Ngapuhi?

TRAION is our tribal body managing our fish settlement - for what gain? What effect or change has the Runanga provided for its beneficiaries through the fisheries settlement? We only see increased spend and little value on the ground for our people, our Marae and our Hapu. Only 11% of Runanga funds were dispensed to our people on the ground - this is grossly unfair for our uri.

Tuhoronuku does not represent the people of Ngapuhi - the Waitangi Tribunal Report clearly tells us they ARE NOT the entity to take our people into negotiations and settlement - move over!

We the undersigned people of Ngapuhi, have NO TRUST OR CONFIDENCE in Te Runanga a Iwi o Ngapuhi and Tuhoronuku Independent Mandated Authority leadership - tautoko mai!
