taking Crown to Waitangi Tribunal
Te Puea Marae is leading the claim as it asks for reparations from the Crown for its past failures, and a commitment to do more for its future generations.
The marae chairperson, Hurimoana Dennis, hopes the hearing will be the “beginning of the end”.
“This is when people are allowed to turn up and tell their stories and talk about the ongoing failings of government agencies, and their policies, to adequately support and house whānau Māori into homes.”
The claim before the tribunal is being supported by a number of community groups nationwide working with Māori.
