Tūhoe to vote on settlement offer

The Crown has offered Tūhoe a settlement package which includes $170mil in financial redress, an apology from the Crown and co-management of Te Urewera.

From April 8, Te Uru Taumatua, who manages the claim, has organised a vote for the Tūhoe people to either ratify the deal or not.

Our reporter Ripeka Timutimu has been at the festival since day one and posed the question to festival attendees as to whether they were in support of the settlement deal.
