ahead of Treaty claim settlement
A significant taiaha held in Tūhura Otago Museum has been returned to Ngāti Maniapoto ahead of the tribe's Treaty of Waitangi claim settlement by Parliament.
Ngāti Maniapoto representatives from the North Island iwi were joined by others from Otago and Murihiku to receive the taonga at a special ceremony on Wednesday morning.
The taiaha named 'Maungārongo' will be taken to Parliament where it will be on display for several years before returning to Ngāti Maniapoto.
