1. The prejudice Ngāti Kahu have suffered as a result of the Crown’s actions or omissions arising from any pre-1865 claim
2. Valuations in relation to the State-owned Enterprise, education institution and Crown Forest License lands, as well as the compensation provisions contained within the Crown Forests Asset Act 1989.
3. Tangata whenua evidence with regard to what appears to be a contest over mana whenua status in relation to Rangiputa station between Ngāti Kahu and the Ngāti Tara claimants.
On 6th July Ngāti Kahu sought an extension to file evidence from several expert witnesses who are providing valuations, historical analysis and a socio-economic assessment of how much compensation it will take to remedy the prejudice suffered by Ngāti Kahu as a result of the Crown’s longstnading breached of Te Tiriti o Waitangi. That extension was granted by the Tribunal on 12th July, and today opening briefs of evidence were filed with the Tribunal in behalf of Ngāti Kahu.
