Ngāti Maru is hosting this year and we are anticipating another amazing event. Tū Mai 2019 will be the end of year event for Ngāruahine so we aim to participate in force by attending the pōwhiri (a must) and activities scheduled across the entire weekend.

Only those who complete the registration form will receive the traditional Sunday hangi, the official Ngāruahine 2019 Tū Mai Tshirt and enrolment into the different activities.   Accommodation for Ngāruahine has been booked at Owae marae so make sure you indicate if you will be staying.

The Tū Mai schedule is below and more information will be made available.

Ngāruahine Kaitiaki Plan

Te Korowai is in the process of developing an Environmental Management Plan or Kaitiaki Plan. The Plan will become an important document for Ngāruahine. It will establish the Iwi position on a range of environmental matters.

When adopted the statements and policies will be used to guide the Council’s, Crown Agencies and Resource Users about the priority interests and requirements of the Iwi. As part of the development process, we would like your input and your ideas.

  • What rules and policy statements would you like to see in the Plan?
  • How would you like to protect the taiao within our rohe?
  • What environmental issues do we need to respond to for today and our future?

Please take the time to let us know via this short survey – https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/KaitiakiPlan.

This survey is the first stage of our engagement process. When we have this initial feedback we will be coming out to talk with you about the Plan.  Your input is really important to us.  Ngā mihi nui.
