After two decades of fighting to stop the previous fee simple title holder of Carrington (Paul Kelly of New York) from building on our burial cave (Te Ana o Taite), Ngati Kahu signed an agreement on 7th February this year with the new fee simple title holder (Guo Jie Gui of Shanghai).
Under the agreement the burial cave is protected for the next millennium. Also under the agreement, Ngati Kahu will make an annual cultural exchange trip to Shanghai to increase our mutual respect and understanding for each other's cultures.
