Your Runanga trustees met recently with Treaty Minister Finlayson. At the hui we requested funding to pay for some much needed historical research to help define our Maru tupuna list. In the meantime, the Runanga elections have been postponed until we can get that mahi done. A revised mandate strategy will be posted soon, so stay tuned. Noho ora mai.

Tena tatou e te whanau. Just to advise the date for our next
Maru wananga/whanau hui is FRIDAY 20ST and SATURDAY 21ST
We have booked Tarata marae for the hui, which will start at
6pm Friday night with kai. But the whakapapa session will be
held at Kohangamoa marae in Inglewood from 10am – 12pm on
Saturday for the convenience of those wanting to attend only
that part of the wananga.
Wrap up and poroaki at 6pm Saturday (back at Tarata). Come
for just part or all of the wananga. If you can bring a kai
as koha, that’s great, if not that’s great too. Bring warm
clothes because it gets pretty cold this time of year in our
beautiful rohe. Can’t wait to catch up with all the whanau.
Any queries just ring, email or txt me.
