Pōneke iwi up in arms over Taputeranga

Local Wellington iwi, Te Āti Awa ki Pōneke is protesting against a law that will see Tapu Te Ranga Island pass into the hands of Ngāti Toa.

This week, the Wellington City Council unanimously agreed to the sale of the Island to Ngāti Toa, but Te Atiawa are up in arms over the decision and say Ngāti Toa are not the rightful owners.
