Invercargill, 4 June 2013
Trampers welcome the Ngāi Tuhoe settlement signed in Wellington today. FMC President, Mr Robin McNeill, says the settlement redresses the iwi’s past injustices while protecting the conservation and recreation values of the former Urewera National Park. Federated Mountain Clubs has engaged with both Ngāi Tuhoe and the Office of Treat Settlement for some years, says Mr McNeill, who believes that there is a high level of trust on all sides.
