Title: He Kupu Taurangi: Treaty Settlements and the Future of Aotearoa New Zealand

Author: Christopher Finlayson and James Christmas

Iwi: Pākehā

Description: This was published in 2021 by Huia publishers. Between 2008 and 2017, an unprecedented number of Treaty of Waitangi settlements were completed with iwi and hapū across New Zealand. As Minister for Treaty of Waitangi Negotiations, Christopher Finlayson led this work on behalf of the Crown. In doing so, he gained unique insights into the elements of successful negotiations and developed ground-breaking legal innovations that enabled settlements to be reached. The authors tell the story of the challenges and successes of New Zealand’s Treaty Settlement project. They pay particular attention to the landmark Whanganui River and Ngāi Tūhoe settlements, which have become internationally recognised. Finally they look ahead to consider how to ensure Treaty settlements last the distance and what the next steps are in the Treaty relationships between Māori and the Crown.

Since 1991, HUIA has made a commitment to produce wonderful and provocative books and resources allowing an insight into the diversity of Māori and Pacific perspectives, young and old alike. We undertake the challenge of exploring the stories and aspirations of our people of Aotearoa; we aim to provide a mirror for Māori to reflect and interpret their experiences and to open a fascinating window for the rest of the world. Under the leadership of Brian Morris and Eboni Waitere, HUIA strives to contribute to the awareness, education and understanding of Māori perspectives. These perspectives are an inspiration to Māori people and of significant value to New Zealand as a nation as it continues to define, create and express itself nationally and on the world stage. HUIA was established by Robyn Rangihuia Bargh and Brian Bargh as an independent publishing company in 1991. Robyn had the compelling vision of a New Zealand that valued stories from the people, places and experiences she had grown up with: Māori and Pākehā, rich and poor, urban and rural, academics, artists and workers, and the many forms of whānau in our communities. More than twenty years later, this vision continues to be articulated by the team at HUIA.
