We can do this, whānau!

We only have one week left of our voting period. If you have voted, thank you!

While we have been directly negotiating with the Crown since 2014, our journey started long before then.

We must acknowledge all those claimants who submitted Waitangi Tribunal claims for Te Tiriti o Waitangi breaches by the Crown — those who have passed on and those who are still with us.

Today, we live with the effects of the losses and mamae, but it is our tīpuna who suffered directly, who were there when their land was taken and when their reo was taken away.

This settlement is for our tamariki and mokopuna.

We will be advised of the results following the conclusion of the voting period, noon on the 29th of this month.

It is vital that you vote and show your support to get our settlement over the line.

As uri of Tamahaki, Tamakana and Uenuku, it is your right to determine our collective future.
Exercise your mana motuhake and vote today!

Registered members with up-to-date postal and email details should have already received their voting packs, including a unique pin and password to help them vote online.

If you haven’t received either your voter pack and/or a reminder email, you should contact the electionz on either 0800 666 028 or email

Nga mihi,

    Thank you for the patai, Can you please let me know if I have already voted?
    I am not quite sure if I have or not as we have been sent a lot of patai from various trusts over the last 3 months.
