The Government and Taranaki‘s Te Atiawa have signed a  $87 million Treaty settlement.

The agreement with the Government includes a deal over the disputed site where the 1860 land wars started.

The agreement involves property, money, as well as an apology for the hardships and loss of life and land in the wars.

Minister of Treaty of Waitangi Negotiations Chris Finlayson said the Crown could never fully compensate for the wrongs of the past, but the settlement signalled a new beginning for Te Atiawa.

the deal also involved the New Plymouth District Council and will mean that the  iwi will  have first right of refusal on land within the area.
