The Trust acknowledges the claims of individuals, whānau and hapū noted above and is committed to representing these claims effectively as part of their settlement negotiations with the Crown. Although the Trust is the mandated body who will negotiate and settle these claims, the Trust is committed to consulting with the claimants it represents as appropriate and will keep those claimants updated as to the progress of the Rangitāne negotiations.
