Welcome to Te Rūnanga o Te Rarawa's Te Tiriti o Waitangi website. We have set this site up to help whānau, hapū and marae keep up to date with our Treaty of Waitangi claims.
Tātai ki Te Rarawa
Te Rarawa has a new Iwi membership database called Tātai o Te Rarawa. Join today and have your say about the settlement of our historical Treaty Claims.
Historical Treaty Claims Update
Te Rarawa is about to embark on the final stage of it's historical Treaty claims. A Deed of Settlement is now ready for the whānau, hapū and marae of Te Rarawa to consider. In January all our whānau over the age of 18, who are afilliated to one of our Te Rarawa marae, will have an opportunity to vote on whether to ratify the Deed of Settlement.
If you not a current member on our database you can join by following the details on our new database, Tātai ki Te Rarawa. Applications for iwi membership are based on whakapapa and must be approved by one of our marae.
This website provides you with information about the details of the settlement offer and the ratification process. If you have already joined up as a member of Te Rarawa, and we have your current details on our iwi membership database, you'll receive voting papers and a booklet with all of this information you'll need about the Settlement Offer and how to vote in January.
A series of ratification hui will be held in January and February which you are welcome to attend. The details are also available on this website.
Update: Paul White, Te Rarawa Treaty Negotiator
You'll also find information on this site about our Treaty team and other claims Te Rarawa are also involved in. There's a history here about our Treaty claims, an iwi narrative outling who we are, and an historical account of our dealings with the Crown.
We're pleased you've joined us on this journey and look forward to seeing you around the haukāinga marae.
