The results of the Special Resolution Vote are in and we received a 94.88% YES vote from our adult registered members who voted.

On behalf of the Trustees of Tātau Tātau o Te Wairoa, we wish to acknowledge all whānau who voted in support. Tēnā koutou!

This very positive result means we can now prepare for the third and final reading of our Iwi and Hapū of Te Rohe o Te Wairoa Claims Settlement Bill in Parliament. This is exciting, we can progress and see the benefits for our iwi, hapū and whānau!

We’ll be in touch soon with arrangements for the Third Reading, and with more information on how you can be involved.

Ka mihi ki a koutou i tautoko mai.

Nākū noa, nā

Tātau Tātau o Te Wairoa



The Crown requested that the Trust make some updates to our Trust Deed, so that it is consistent with the Deed of Settlement that you approved in late 2016, and also so that the Trust Deed meets the Crown’s requirements for trust deeds generally. This is an administrative step required by the Crown to ensure there is full alignment with our Deed of Settlement.

We stress that none of the proposed updates alter the intent of the Trust Deed. This is an administrative step required by the Crown so that once completed, our Settlement Bill can have its third reading in Parliament and be enacted.

To make the proposed updates to the Trust Deed, the Trust must hold a Special General Meeting (SGM) and have a vote of all adult registered members to approve a Special Resolution. The SGM is being held on Friday 27 July, 5-7pm, at Wairoa College Hall. This will be a good opportunity for you to ask any questions you might have.

We need you – and as many adult registered members as possible – to vote ‘YES’ to approve the Special Resolution.

We encourage you to take the time to read through the information in the booklet available as a PDF download on this page, and review the proposed updates. We want to ensure you have full visibility of all the proposed updates, so a full copy of the Revised Trust Deed is also available for download on this page, along with the original version. You can also pick up a copy at the Trust’s offices (34 Marine Parade West, Wairoa).

Thank you for your support whānau. Your input is crucial to the future success of our people.
