Deeds Review Iwi Consultation Feedback Report, May 2017
The Ngāti Koata Trust Board held consultation hui in Nelson, Hamilton, Auckland and Porirua from 8 – 11 May 2017 on proposed amendments to the Deeds of Ngāti Koata Trust (NKT) and Te Pātaka a Ngāti Koata Trust (TPNKT). The proposed amendments were a result of reviews of the Deeds by the Board and Kāhui Legal.
The 28 proposed amendments have been grouped into three resolutions that will be voted on at the NKT Annual General Meeting (AGM) in September. That is: Tūpuna List, Separation of Governance & Management, and Administrative Changes.
The iwi was also invited to have discussion on Whāngai, and amendments to the Deed about the Removal of Trustees. These two items were discussion points only, and are not for voting at this year’s AGM.
A booklet detailing the proposed amendments was only mailed to households in Nelson, Hamilton, Auckland and Porirua. Electronic copies were also made available on the NKT website, and advertised through Facebook posts and the May monthly e-pānui. Despite this, a number of attendees at the hui complained that they had not received a booklet. One Trustee also did not received the booklet in the mail. With the exception of one person in Hamilton, no one received a booklet in Hamilton or Porirua.
The review hui and Facebook Live Feed were advertised on Facebook, the NKT website, the monthly e-pānui, and in the booklets mailed out to Iwi Members. The Nelson hui was filmed live on Facebook for those outside the four centres where hui were held. Only around five minutes was live streamed for the other three hui.
All hui were fronted by Board Members accompanied by kaumātua Pirihira and Hohepa Paul, and NKT staff members Adrienne Kenney and Ammon Kātene.
The hui also gave the Board a good opportunity to update Iwi Members on the Marine and Coastal Area (Takutai Moana) Act 2011 application.
The following tables provide a breakdown of hui attendance.
