Three Taranaki iwi pushing for final Treaty settlements say the impending deals will provide a huge boost to the region.
The Nga Ruahine, Taranaki and Te Atiawa tribes signed provisional agreements with the Minister of Treaty Settlements Chris Finlayson just before Christmas.
They say the deals, collectively worth more than $220 million, are a chance for iwi to develop and bring significant resources to the region.
Nga Ruahine chair Daisy Noble says working out how best to use the money will take time and much discussion.
A Te Atiawa negotiator, Peter Moeahu, says Mr Finlayson is pushing for final agreement by June.
