“..Tuhoe has reached an agreement with the Crown for a $170 million settlement of historic grievances.
That puts it up there among the largest settlements to date, with Tainui’s and Ngai Tahu’s settlements both worth $170 million, but in the mid-1990s.
The agreement will see the Urewera National Park given its own legal identity and managed by a governance board with equal numbers of Tuhoe and the Crown.
Decision will be by consensus, meaning that both parties will have a veto right.
Public access would be guaranteed on the same access as now.
Both parties have registered their interest in getting the park recognised by UNESCO as having unique values…”

..than has been paid out in all treaty-settlements..)
..that’s one of those perspective-finding facts…eh..?..)
