Ngā whakatau i raro i te Tiriti o Waitangi

I te tau 2000, ka tīmata ngā kōrero i waenganui i te iwi me te Karauna hei whakaea i ngā whakamau i roto i ngā tau, tae noa ki ngā tāngata i mate, ngā whenua me ngā taonga i murua i ngā pakanga o te tekau tau atu i 1860, me ngā pēhitanga i pā i te hokonga o ngā whenua o te iwi. I tīmata mai ēnei whakaritenga i muri i ngā whakawhitiwhitinga kōrero, ngā tāpaetanga tono, ngā tono kia pono te Karauna ki tāna i raro i te Tiriti o Waitangi. Nō te marama o Noema, 2003, ka hainahia te whakataunga, whai muri i te whakaaetanga o te iwi katoa. Ko ngā wāhanga o te whakataunga, ko te whakapāha a te Karauna ki a Ngā Rauru, ko te whakamana i ngā tikanga a Ngā Rauru mā te whai wāhi o Ngā Rauru ki ngā kaupapa tiaki i ngā whenua rāhui kei raro i ngā whakahaere a Te Papa Atawhai i te taha tonga o Taranaki, ko te utu moni hoki. Kei te iwi anō te mana tuatahi ki te hoko, ki te kore hoko rānei i ngā whenua o te Karauna.

Ngā rā kei te tū

Ka oti te taha ki te Tiriti, ka tahuri te iwi ki te whakaora i te Ngā Raurutanga – ngā uara, ngā whakapono, ngā tikanga ake o Ngā Rauru. Kei te whakapakari te iwi i tōna matatau ki te reo Māori, kei te whakanuia te wāhi ki ngā marae me te iwi. Kei te hiahia anō te iwi ki te whakapakari i te taha ōhanga. Ko tētahi umanga a te iwi ko te kato me te hoko i ngā rongoā Māori.
