Background

This hui follows two earlier hui held in November 2009 at Kokiri Marae in Wellington, and in February 2010 Nga Whare Waatea Marae in Mangere, on the Radiospectrum claims.

This hui is to update participants on progress with the latest claim, Wai 2224, to the Waitangi Tribunal and on progress with discussions in the joint engagement agreed to at the February Hui.

This take concerns the Crowns policy in relation to the digital dividend as spectrum used by the old analogue technology moves towards the digital switch-off, and Maori Treaty rights in relation to the electromagnetic spectrum.

Acting on legal advice after the initial judicial conference with the Tribunal at Christmas time, claimants jointly agreed to:

  • ask the Waitangi Tribunal to vacate the current fixture and timetable of a February hearing adjourn the urgency application to an indefinite date.
  • ask the Tribunal to reserve leave for the claimants, with three working days notice to the Crown, to revive the urgency application.

The claimants and the Crown have been meeting since March to develop a joint agreement on a resolution to the Treaty claim. The claimants invite iwi and interested roopu to come and offer their views on the process and the negotiating position with the Crown, at this third national hui. It is expected the Crown will be making decisions on the Treaty interest later in July.

A further booklet will be prepared and made available at the hui.

There is some budget for this hui but it would help if iwi could pay their own travel costs.
