Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Awa provided a free bus this morning for iwi to travel across to support Te Patuwai and Ngāti Awa at today’s hearings. Karla Akuhata, Ngarangi Chapman and Adrienne Paul were to speak on behalf of Te Patuwai Tribal Committee in the morning and Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Awa on behalf of the Iwi in the afternoon. Ngāti Awa and Te Patuwai are among iwi that want the Rena Wreck removed.
