What do the 3 teams do?
 Team 1; Whakapapa Research Team
That this group research those hapu and Marae that are named in the
Rangitane Mandating Document e.g. Ngati Hamua, Ngati Moe,
 Team 2; Project Management Team
This group is largely involved with meeting the requirements of CFRT so
that we may obtain the funding
Also looking at the employing of a project manager project
 Team 3; Mandating
This group has been focusing on getting the Mandate Strategy and the Trust
Deed signed off by the crown
Crown Forestry Rental Trust

The organisation that takes all unclaimed monies from
Maori forestry interests and invests it

The funds from the interest only are used to fund the
work needed to be done for Treaty claims by iwi

Only those iwi who have forestry interests are eligible

Because Ngamu forest is in our region of interest our Trust
qualifies.
Points of interest;
• The process will take 42 months but probably longer
• To get funding support the Trust needs to meet
certain milestones
• All systems must be robust
• Funding is not retrospective
• Funding is applied for in 6 phases
• Additional funding is also available for mapping and
research
Summary;
 We have almost completed negotiating with CFRT to be
their client which means we can get funding for first phase
of the process - Getting the Mandate
We just need the Trustees to read over the contract and give
their tick of approval so that Ian can sign the contract.
 At the moment we have our interim Lawyer looking over
our Mandate Strategy so that it can be signed by the crown.
 Had our first meeting with Rangitane. The second meeting
had to be postponed but it should happen in the next
month or two.
 With your help I hope to report to members of our claimant
community via the Papawai Marae email tree
