Ngāi Tahu treaty claim hui, 1907

Ngāi Tahu treaty claim hui, 1907

The large South Island tribe of Ngāi Tahu sold their tribal lands from 1848, and were promised such benefits as hospitals, schools and reserves of land for their future use. Few of those promises were kept by the Crown and Ngāi Tahu began a long and peaceful campaign for compensation. Here representatives of Ngāi Tahu meet at Arowhenua, near Temuka, in 1907. The Ngāi Tahu treaty claim was finally settled in 1998.
