Western Bay of Plenty District Council’s manager of reserves and facilities Peter Watson said police had been to the site, along with council staff, local Maori and a Historic Places Trust archaeologist.
The archeologist identified the bones as old Maori bones and the council was now working with Otawhiwhi marae representatives on the correct protocols for dealing with the bones.
