Nga Korero Tuku Iho hearings for WAI 1018 have been declined for 22nd, 23rd, and 24th May, 2014 we have respectfully asked for a later date. Our presentation will be thorough, and respectful to our Ngātiawa Tupuna name.
Like our tupuna and parents we are not and never were born under the name "Te Atiawa ki Whakarongotai."
We also will NOT be having WAI 1018 and WAI 609 Nga Korero Tuku Iho hearings at Whakarongotai Marae, Waikanae or Paraparaumu Boating Club.
Paraparaumu Boating Club is the land where a major conflict with Ngati Toa occurred. Ngati Toa tried to take the land of the Ngātiawa Paeroke-Jenkins whanau.
The safety of our Kaumatua giving evidence is a high priority for Ngātiawa Iwi claimants.
