Tuhoe negotiation terms to be signed

4:29 pm on 29 July 2008

Up to 300 Tuhoe people are expected at Parliament this week to sign Terms of Negotiation with the Crown for a comprehensive future Treaty of Waitangi settlement.

The iwi is not a signatory to the Treaty and it will be only the second time it has entered formal negotiations with the Crown.

A Tuhoe spokesperson says the signing signals the start of negotiations for a settlement on historical grievances and claims.
