ngapuhi case begins


A while ago I got whisper of an excitingly unique Maori claim launched by the Ngapuhi.

Today I learn the case is getting under way today, via NZHerald:

The Te Paparahi o te Raki inquiry is unique in that iwi members will argue that their ancestors did not cede sovereignty when the Treaty was signed in 1840. Most historical tribunal claims deal with land loss.
