Whānau occupy land in Shelly Bay, Wellington to prevent further development and the return of land. Mau Whenua Movement (Save Shelly Bay) is a collective of Taranaki Whānui iwi members who made their opposition to proposed sale of iwi land at Shelly Bay known in late 2015 and early 2016. The land at Shelly Bay is highly significant and represents over 50% of the value of Taranaki Whānui Treaty Settlement assets in Wellington.
They are currently fighting to stop scheduled developments and have land returned back to those hapū of the Omarukaikuru whenua. Moki Torangapū aka Adrian Wagner radio announcer for Te Upoko o Te Ika talks to us how over several years, Mau Whenua continued to question and resist the increasing numbers of land sales by Trustees of the Port Nicholson Block Settlement Trust.
