A Whangarei hapu, Patuharakeke, says it's slow, but it is making progress in its negotiations with the Crown over ancestral land that Mighty River Power is keen to sell. The Federation of Maori Authorities says it makes sense to collaborate with Beef and Lamb New Zealand to optimise how tribal land is used by tangata whenua for sheep and beef farming.
