A settlement was finally signed at Pariroa Pā in 2001. In 2003 the Ngāti Ruanui Settlement Act was passed, culminating with a reading of the Crown apology to 600 Ngāti Ruanui at Pariroa pā.

Ngāti Ruanui are now represented by Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Ruanui, recognised by the government as the representative body of Ngāti Ruanui, with responsibility for managing the tribe's assets for the benefit of its members.
