Ngati Tuwharetoa, which has struck a deal with Mighty River Power over the use of water from Lake Taupo, won't disclose how much its commercial agreement is worth; A hui to resolve a dispute has failed to fix up problems between the group mandated to steer the Ngapuhi treaty settlement and hapu, which opposes Tuhoronuku; The Maori Party says common sense has prevailed with a decision by the Whanganui District Council to use an 'H' in the spelling of its name; A protester at the occupation of an ancestral mountain in the Far North says the return of the maunga to its iwi, is marvellous and courageous.
