Raupatu

Waikato-Tainui

Raupatu

In 1995, the Crown formally acknowledged their gross pillage and wrongful confiscation of over 1.2 million acres of Waikato land with a settlement of $170 million and the signature of Queen Elizabeth II. Raupatu is the story of rangatira forging the Waikato-Tainui settlement and traces the tribe’s development over the following 25 years.

Waikato-Tainui have chosen to use double-vowels rather than macrons in this feature.
