Nga¯puhi vote on Treaty
Nga¯puhi hapu¯ have been holding and attending hui around Northland as they vote on whether or not to support a new plan to negotiate Treaty claims. The evolved mandate — a plan on how Nga¯puhi’s Treaty of Waitangi claims will be negotiated — has been up for vote since November 9. There is both an individual vote and a hapu¯ vote. So far all the Whanga¯rei hapu¯ have rejected the evolved mandate.
