Waiheke Land Action Committee
It was not until 15 January 1984 that a general tribal meeting could be convened. At a hui at Paoa Whanaunga Marae, Kaiaua, a Ngati Paoa executive was formed to continue discussions with the Minister of Maori Affairs and Mr Evans, and an action committee was formed (Ngati Paoa Waiheke Whenua) to occupy the land if need be. This claim was filed on 18 January 1984 and a group visited the scheme land on 22 January. Then, on learning that settlement of the transfer was fixed for 2 February, when vacant possession would be given and taken, Ngati Paoa resolved to fill the vacancy themselves.
