The RTA is run by volunteers and has been instrumental in the facilitation of Ruawaipu Claims and Claimants. This involves helping in the preparation of drafting claims and legal counsel engagement. The RTA does not have any claims before the Waitangi Tribunal and only plays a supporting role. Assets and management is not the focus of the RTA, rather empowering our whanau-hapu to control and manage their own destiny is.
Another role of the RTA is protecting the whanau-hapu interests. This has involved regular submissions to government on issues that impact upon Ruawaipu.
