The Tūhoe settlement has taken years of negotiation.  In 2010, it came to a halt when Prime Minister John Key ruled out giving Tūhoe ownership of Te Urewera.

Tūhoe did not sign the Treaty of Waitangi but were subjected to harsh Crown policies.  Today, the Crown apologised for those wrongs.  

In Tuhoe's $170 million settlement, apart from an apology and Tūhoe autonomy, Te Urewera National Park will become a new legal entity governed by a board of iwi and Crown appointees.

Today new talks emerged on how to acknowledge key negotiator Tamati Kruger.

A special moment also for Tūhoe hapū of Waikaremoana, Tamakaimoana, when the Crown returned the original flag taken from Maungapōhatu during the police arrest of Rua Kenana almost 100 years ago.
