Ngā Rauru is taking its concerns about proposed seabed mining in the South Taranaki Bight to the United Nations.
Te Kaahui o Rauru board member Te Huia Bill Hamilton will present them to the United Nations’ Expert Mechanism on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
He heads to Geneva for the five-day conference this month and will be representing the National Iwi Chairs’ Forum.
Consent given for the mining breaches International Human Rights Law and marginalises the iwi’s views, he said.
