Tātai Hono Rangatahi Dinner

Tātai Hono are a research group made up of Ngāruahine uri looking at iwi engagement.  We would like to bring together a group of Ngāruahine rangatahi (youth) to join our research group for ‘Kai & Kōrero’ on Friday 30 August, 2019. The idea is to bring together like-minded rangatahi to start some conversations around what they see for their future as Ngāruahine uri!

We hope to;
* connect and build relationships with our rangatahi
* share, discuss and understand your perspectives on iwi engagement, leadership, connections, politics, society, culture and the future of our iwi
* talk about our research project; Tātai Hono

We only have a small budget this time, so are asking for rangatahi to share with us some information about themselves and what it means to be Ngāruahine – we will then select up to 12 rangatahi to join us for this networking opportunity.

If you’re 18-25 years old, whakapapa to one of the six hapū groupings of Ngāruahine iwi and are keen to share some of your whakaaro on what it means to be Ngāruahine, please complete the short application here.

Venue (tbc, but will be within South Taranaki)
Date: Friday, 30 August 2019
Time: 6.00pm – 8.30pm (please allow some time either side for travel to and from dinner venue)

Expenses will be paid (koha for petrol for those travelling out of town, transport to and from dinner and dinner costs). Rangatahi will also be transported to Te Korowai o Ngāruahine Annual General Meeting on Saturday 31 August, 2019 if rangatahi would like to attend.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us!

E tū Ngāruahine!

Taranaki Tu Mai

Taranaki Tu Mai

Taranaki Tu Mai

The year – 2040.  This marks the 200 anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi.  This is a significant milestone in our history, and the Board has chosen 2040 as an important focal point.

Vision – Ka ora taku toa, kia tū Ngāruahine ai tātou.  Ka ora taku toa was taken from the ngeri ‘Titokowaru’, composed by Dr Huirangi Waikerepuru.  This ngeri acknowledges Titokowaru as both a man of war and peace.   ‘Ka ora taku toa’ represents our growth from a period of chaos towards light and empowerment and this phase building relationships to achieve understanding is the priority for this strategy.  The Board has retained the previous vision of ‘Kia tū Ngāruahine ai tātou’ which means Ngāruahine proud because it is still relevant.

Mission – A healthy, wealthy and culturally vibrant iwi.  This is the purpose of Te Korowai o Ngāruahine Trust, to pursue kaupapa that will lead to Ngāruahine achieving its vision.

Values  These have not changed since the first strategy was developed in 2009.

Strategic Pou and Strategic Priorities.  We have replaced the pākeha pou and are using Māori references.  Mana Motuhake replaces politically savvy.  Ngāruahinetanga replaces culturally competent, Manaakitanga replaces socially responsible, Tahua o Puanga Kairau replaces financially sound and a new pou Kaitiakitanga has been added.  Three strategic priorities have been identified, and they are relationships, capability, and self-reliance.  Together these pou provide the guidance for the initiatives identified in this plan.
