Story: Ngāi Tahu

The Ngāi Tahu claim settled

The Ngāi Tahu claim was not finally settled until the 1990s. A 1998 act of Parliament offered economic compensation. The Crown also apologised for the deprivation and cultural dispossession Ngāi Tahu had endured. This video is of Ngāi Tahu leader Sir Tīpene O’Regan at Parliament for the passing of the act.
