Lasting peace and harmony at Lake Horowhenua Domain is possible by mutual agreement.

Dispute details, need printing, on perceived unfair official acts. Facts could be compiled in a small publication.

All points of view would feature and cover the events from just before the Raukawa tribe took control of part of what we now call the Horowhenua district, to where it's claimed by Philip Taueki that some Lake Horowhenua Domain buildings' leases terminated upon their expiry this century.

The creation and subdivision of the Horowhenua Block, by the New Zealand government from Raukawa holding and the disputed 1907 leasing out of the Horowhenua Lake Domain from the Maori owners, by legislation, would deserve coverage in it too. All points would be backed by reference to valid documents.

We might then see the start of a process to bring lasting harmony at Lake Horowhenua and progress towards the 100kmh highway bypass from Ohau village to Waitarere Beach Rd/State Highway 1 junction, via part of the domain.
