Whakatōhea Pre-Settlement Trust draft deed of mandate strategy

In September 2016, the Whakatōhea Pre-Settlement Claims Trust submitted a draft Deed of Mandate to the Crown to represent Whakatōhea in negotiations with the Crown for the comprehensive settlement of the historical Treaty of Waitangi claims of Whakatōhea. The mandate of the Whakatōhea Pre-Settlement Claims Trust is to negotiate a draft settlement only. Any final settlement will require ratification from Whakatōhea.
