Under the New Zealand Settlements Act 1863 the government confiscated 1.2 million acres (486,000 hectares) of Maori land in late 1864. Kemp in The Horowhenua was forced to give and sell land to the Government agents who wanted legal fees, cheap grazing and survey costs which were unknown at the time. Maori lost a great deal of its lands and as time spread so did the laws of the land whereby Courts and Government policy allowed outsiders to buy Maori shares thus alienating lands to further allowing lands to become landlocked & allowing buyers to purchase even more shares off Maori. Deals were done in the Grand Hotel over beer, cars in the 50s for land swaps. It was a free for all yet no protection was given to those Maori owners who had now undivided shares in land blocks.

Pākehā settlers would occupy the confiscated land while successive governments would bring in new laws like the Public Works Acts to confiscate even more lands. The Government in 2012-2013 will not negotiate with the direct descendents hence urban authorities with indirect links to our direct descendent lines are now taking place yet this is an injustice to Maoridom. Letters to Ministers as of March 2nd 2013 have gone unanswered with even our Maori MP's turning a blind eye to date??? buts lets wait and see.
 

The lakebed, dewatered zone, islands and the Hokio Stream are owned by beneficial members of the Muaupoko tribe 1511 of them constitute in 81 shares, as determined by the Reserves and other Lands Disposal Act (ROLD) 1956. The lake waters Muaupoko Domain, dewatered zone and one chain reserve strip in front of the Muaupoko Domain are vested under the Reserves Act 1977 in the Horowhenua Lake Domain Board. To date they have achieved nothing and even today sewerage is released into the Horowhenua Lake by the Council when it is overloaded? The Horowhenua Lake has sediments on the bottom so pronounced with toxins that the Council and Horizons have neglected in their responsibilities over many years to clean it up as its in the hard basket. Algael blooms form which are caused by super dangerous cyanobacteria and are everywhere and weeds choke the Lake-- you cannot swim in this Lake let alone walk in it as one of our Kaumatua nearly drowned near the Weir by the outlet to Hokio Stream due to the sludge that has piled up in this Lake. Horowhenua Lake was once a prestine Lake and needs to be brough back to its former beauty to benefit all not just us Maori owners. [ Read Lake Domain Board minutes ]

LAKE HOROWHENUA SHOWING ORIGINAL OWNERSHIP LIST

 

Lake Horowhenua

NOW READ THIS: It has been over 45 years that Horowhenua Lake has had sediment, sewerage and contaminants from dairy & horticulture in this Lake yet Domain Board member Proctor says --- need to get scientific research when already we had an analysis by independent Niwa Fresh water Scientist Max Gibbs in Feb 2012 who said if a kid drank the water they would probably die under certain conditions like now with summer weather March 2013? Due to what Mr Gibbs did nothing has been achieved since with the Domain Board & the Maori members of this Board still do not have input of their own???? The Lake is choked with weed, sediment and manures from horticulture and dairy farm run offs account for 60% of the water runoff and this Lake is No 107 of a total 114 most contaminated Lakes in NZ by the Ministry of the Environment

Read more from the GREEN PARTY about the pollution & inaction of the Horowhenua Council & the Mayor Duffy who spent over $10m on a council building yet nothing on the Lake devastation. The Maori Party was not interested at this time?

The Max Gibbs report failed to address the real problem SLUDGE buildup on the lake bed. The use of weed cutters is not the solution to the problem at hand. Must remove the contaminated sediment beds
