Ngaatiawa ki Kapiti CT Decision Update

Ngaatiawa ki Kapiti Claimants Decision:

Is based on the consistent non-transparency of Atiawa ki Whakarongotai Charitable Trust (AWCT) previously known as Te Ati Awa ki Whakarongotai Runanga since 2002.  The new Ati Awa Mai I Kutauaki ki Whareroa Charitable Trust claimants formally known as Te Ati Awa ki Whakarongotai Marae Trust and Parata WAI 88-89 claimants.  Both entities have campaigned to erase the existence of Ngaatiawa WAI Claimants from Taranaki to Wharekauri/Chatam's. 
The publicly recorded and documented Domestic Violence directed at Ngaatiawa Uenuku and Puketapu claimants at Waitangi Tribunal Porirua - Manawatu Region Judicial Conferences. By these groups, as Damien and Ani Parata with Kahu & Poara Parata-Ropata and Chris Parata-Webber, who will recall their behaviour well.  In front of Judge, 35 barristers and another 100 or more participants at Tukorehe Marae, Levin.   
This was followed by shallow non-transparent attempts by AWCT and Parata Whanau to enter into direct negotiations with Office of Treaty Settlements (OTS) this failed.  Excluding all other claimants.   99% of those involved have NOT attended Judicial Conferences for 8 years.     
Where relationships are developed with Judicial table, CFRT and OTS.  Eight years ago the historian from Judicial table did not know who we were or that Ngaatiawa existed on Kapiti Coast. Eight years later they now know who Ngaatiawa is, we are not Ruanui - Te Atiawa government soldiers created to erase our existence.  
None of their current behaviour has indicated they are willing to change how they operate or to be inclusive and transparent within their own Parata whanau.  Let alone with Ngaatiawa ki Kapiti claimants.   
The decision to walk as Ngaatiawa is to honour our tupuna and for the protection of our mokopuna and future generations.  They do not have to be subjected to the same domestic violence our Tupuna, Koro, Kuia, Papa's, Whaea, Uncles, Aunties and current generations tolerate.  It's time to move on!  
DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IS NOT OKAY
WE ARE NGAATIAWA TUTURU - NGATI KAHUKURA HAPU O WHARE UENUKU.   WE HONOUR OUR TUPUNA WHAKAPAPA!
