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 will not negotiate with the direct descendents hence urban authorities with indirect links to our direct descendent lines are now taking place yet it 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.




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




The lakebed, dewatered zone, islands and the Hokio Stream are owned by beneficial members of the Muaupoko tribe 1511 of them 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 and leaked again in August 2014 from the Arawhata Stream yet nothing is published.

With Horizons having their new settling ponds on the Arawhata Stream inlet this project does not answer the problem if the waters do not flood. All the leaching from horticulture and farm blocks continue to enter the Lake as this diversion can only work or supposedly work during flooding---total waste of time.Its only purpose is when the waters do flood so the nitrates go into this Lake via the stream and are not diverted May 2018. There is now a roadway around the edge of this project to the Lake built by Gibsons for Horizons. It only serves for boat launching by Horizons nothing else and the investment here we were told was around $200-300,000--for what? In the meantime Horizons do not even check the other inlets. Monitoring reports are sketchy and when asked Logan Brown from Horizons could only give a May 2015 copy of Water Quality in 2016 when asked as they had no information for the years 2015, 16, 17?? So where has all the money gone..
