Taranaki iwi are set to sign multi-million dollar provisional agreements with the Crown this weekend as part of progress to a full Treaty settlement.


Representatives of three iwi - Nga Ruahine, Taranaki and Te Atiawa - are expected to sign documents with Treaty Settlements Minister Chris Finlayson on Saturday.

The signing is expected to take place at parliament and will involve financial and cultural redress.

A spokesperson for Mr Finlayson said Nga Ruahine and Te Atiawa would both sign an Agreement in Principle and the Taranaki iwi would sign a Letter in Agreement.


The next stage would likely be a Deed of Settlement.

Will Aaron Cruden's omission hurt or help the All Blacks?

Hurt - he needs as much game time as possible.

Help - finally Beauden Barrett will get a proper run.

Hmmm - no biggie, just a temporary hitch.

Who is Cruden? I support the All Whites.
