Ardern issues historic Maori apology and $155m in redress

Wellington: New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has issued a “long overdue” apology to a Maori tribe for warmongering and almost two centuries of breaches to the Treaty of Waitangi.

Ardern travelled to the King Country settlement of Te Kuiti to issue the Crown apology, the first she has delivered personally as part of reconciliation and treaty settlement efforts.

After 30 years of negotiations with the Ngati Maniapoto tribe, the government agreed to $NZ165 million ($155 million) of financial and commercial redress, and the return of 36 sites of cultural significance to Maori.
