We appointed Kensington Swan lawyer Mihiarangi Piripi to facilitate an independent process for the review of the Tamanuhiri Tutu Poroporo Trust Deed. Watch a video below to provide you with background as to why we had to undertake the review.
Mihiarangi facilitated two online hui, and two face to face hui and these were open to all iwi members to attend, Mihi also received feedback from individuals via email.
All of the feedback from the consultation process has been collated and we now have a proposed document with amendments to our current Deed to meet the current legislative and best-practice requirements and to make sure that we as a Trust can deliver the best possible outcomes for our Iwi.
You will receive the final document in the post, you will be asked to review this and then vote yes or no to the Trust Deed amendments.
Transfer of Mandated Iwi Authority Status
This is an administrative process that will ensure we can continue to manage assets correctly. You will receive a detailed paper explaining this resolution.
