Te Urewera National Park will become a new legal entity and will be governed by a board of Tuhoe and Crown appointees.

The Crown also acknowledged Tuhoe grievances over land confiscations and brutal military campaigns with the inclusion of a $170 million settlement.

The New Zealand First Party abstained on the vote highlighting that some neighbouring iwi and hapu groups have competing interests.
