Te Kete Pounamu – Te Tai Tokerau recently held our first hui in central Whangarei and met with beautiful whānau from Whangarei to Mangamuka. We were privileged to listen to pūrākau on the kaupapa of the hui which stimulated whakawhanaungatanga.
We will be meeting again to form a steering roopū with other leaders across Te Tai Tokerau by hosting monthly steering group hui and quarterly regional hui. The vision is to continue to capture the voice of Māori with lived experience throughout the Te Tai Tokerau region. We will use the kōrero to influence, affect and implement positive change for our people.
“Things are beginning to ignite here in Te Tai Tokerau, and we are feeling positive about having some strong representatives for the region come through”
