Tuhoe and the Government are to share in the guardianship of Te Urewera forest.

Despite the Government confiscating Te Urewera from Tuhoe in the 1800s, they remain reluctant to return full ownership to Tuhoe.

The Government has instead recompensed Tuhoe with $170million.

Tuhoe also received $65million from the Central Forestry deal in 2008.

 

Ka noho a Tuhoe raua ko Te Kawanatanga hei kaitiaki i te ngahere o Te Urewera.

Ahakoa he mahi whanako no Te Kawanatanga Te Urewera i a Tuhoe i tera atu rautau tawhito kare Te Kawanatanga e hiahia ana kia whakahokia Te Urewera ki a Tuhoe. Hoi ano hei whakamirimiri i a Tuhoe kei te tuku Te Kawanatanga i te kotahi rau, whitu tekau miriona tārā hei whakaea i te hara o Te Kawanatanga.

Kei te pupuri hoki a Tuhoe i te putea ono tekau ma rima mirona tārā  no nga pānga ngahere o Kaingaroa i te tau rua mano ma waru.
