Volcanic cones Treaty settlement

The Auckland volcanic cones Treaty settlement was initialled yesterday.
On Radio NZ this morning Ngāti Whātua o Ōrakei trustee Ngarimu Blair said that once the settlement goes through, the iwi collective will be able to look after the volcanic cones properly.

"There'll be fewer weeds, there'll be more native biodiversity, there'll be more identification of the 1,000-year Māori history and heritage, there'll be more Māori art work, there'll be less damage to the archaeological sites by cows, there'll be visitor centres and cultural centres in time, so we're hoping there'll be a lot of change."

Right on!
