Ngai Tahu let down by Waitangi tribunal

I'm disappointed by this decision.

"Six top of the south iwi are jubilant they have successfully defended a Waitangi Tribunal decision which says they have customary rights overlapping with those of South Island powerhouse iwi Ngai Tahu.

A High Court decision released on Friday by Justice Alan MacKenzie dismissed the Ngai Tahu challenge to the tribunal's decision.

Ngai Tahu is considering appealing the decision."

More lawyers, more cost but I am sure that this will go all the way. We have fought too long and too hard to give up any of our takiwa.
