Kia ora whanau – please find attached a panui from Te Tumu Paeroa to all owners of Ngati Maru A – F blocks. It is an invitation from Te Tumu Paeroa to attend a hui on Sunday 13th December 11am @ Tarata Marae to hear about a proposal to utilise these blocks for honey production.
This hui is being organised by Te Tumu Paeroa in association with the Tarata Marae. However the Runanga wishes to ensure the panui is communicated out as widely as possible to all owners of Maru A – F blocks so that they know about the hui and can have their say.

The Runanga is looking for an experienced Project Manager to help establish our capability as we prepare to enter negotiations with the Crown for the settlement of our Treaty claim. This is a fixed-term assignment for six months @ 20 hours per week. New Plymouth based but some travel to Wellington required. Own car essential. Job Description attached. Applications close on Wednesday 15 October. For more information about the role, or to apply, please contact Holden Hohaia on 029 6500-759 email@example.com
Tena koutou e oku rangatira o Ngati Maruwharanui
As you probably know, the Runanga recently held three information hui and ran an iwi voting process to seek your mandate to represent you in negotiations with the Crown for the settlement of our historical Treaty claims.
I’m happy to advise that more than 90% of those who voted said they support the Runanga in this process. On behalf of the trustees, thank you for your support.
We will now prepare a Deed of Mandate which we will submit to the Crown for approval. As explained at the hui, this process will take several months.
In the meantime, we will also apply for project funding from Crown Forestry Rental Trust to help us progress the claim. If we are successful, any required project roles will initially be short-term assignments probably of no more than 6 months. Any mahi will be advertised first to Ngati Maru.
We will keep you updated through e-panui. And if you have any queries about the claim process, please contact Holden on 029-6500-759 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Please find attached three information documents that will shortly be sent to registered members of Ngati Maru in advance of the advertised mandating hui on 9, 10 and 15 August. Please note that the voting paper has not been attached, however this will be included in the personally addressed voting/information packs to be mailed out to all registered members next week.
The first attachment (Information Sheet 1) is a summary version of the PowerPoint presentation that will be used at the three mandating hui. The second attachment (Information Sheet 2) is an extract covering the mandating process, taken from the Crown Forestry Rental Trust (CFRT) Summary Guide for Claimants. It provides a really good overview of what mandate is and what the Runanga needs to do to keep the mandate. The third attachment is a diagram showing an indicative timetable of the overall Treaty negotiations process, from Mandate Strategy stage right through to settlement and establishment of a post settlement tribal entity. This is also taken from the CFRT Summary Guide for Claimants.
Please note if you are registered but your physical address has changed, then you need to update your details. Email our Registrar, Pare Hayward, on email@example.com or phone 022 310-2459. Otherwise you might not receive your voting pack.
