Several Treaty breaches by Crown on Kāpiti Coast - Waitangi Tribunal

From Midday Report, 12:43 pm on 15 December 2022

The Waitangi Tribunal has found the Crown committed several treaty breaches on the Kāpiti Coast - including the origins of the town of Waikanae.

The 992 page report released just now is the latest volume in the Tribunal's ongoing Porirua ki Manawatū inquiry.

It found Te Ātiawa/Ngāti Awa are largely landless because of heavy-handed and dubious purchasing schemes, and the Crown's failure to abide by promises.

RNZ's Māori news director Jamie Tahana has been reading the report and spoke with Māni Dunlop.
