Rangatahi – we need you!

We’ve teamed up with Wairoa’s own Rugged and Wylde to share what’s important to our Rangatahi, and find out why registering with Tātau Tātau o Te Wairoa is so important for our future.

This clip is the start of a range of video and blogs that will be developed over the coming months.

There has been a growing desire within and outside Te Wairoa for the inclusion of rangatahi in some way at a governance level of Tātau Tātau o Te Wairoa Trust. Our current Deed enables the formation of a council of kaumātua but makes no provision for a similar structure for rangatahi.

We can change this, by creating a new structure that meets the needs of our Trust and the ambitions of our rangatahi.

Watch this space and ‘like’ and follow us on Facebook as we release more – and share the video while you’re there! Provide your insight, experience and perspectives on what the future could look like if you had a chance to design it – register with your iwi, join the conversation and help us shift our future into overdrive.

Nau mai haere mai tātau tātau kātoa.
Apiata Tapine, Trustee, Tātau Tātau o Te Wairoa Trust

November Hui: Join us to kōrero about the future of Tātau Tātau

Thank you for sharing your views on our future and what’s important to you at our August Engagement Hui.

Now it’s over to you again – we’re back on the road around Aotearoa in November, to share feedback from August’s Hui, look at the refinements your Trustees have made and gather more feedback from our Tātau Tātau o Te Wairoa whānau.

Our Trustees are meeting monthly and making good progress on transitioning from our negotiating body Te Tira Whakaemi o Te Wairoa to Tātau Tātau.

The upcoming Engagement Hui are really important. What you tell us will help shape the thinking on our future representative structure, which currently has 7 Kāhui (Clusters), and our asset ownership arrangements.

Wairoa iwi to choose Initial Trustees for Post-Settlement Governance Entity

Wairoa iwi to choose Initial Trustees for Post-Settlement Governance Entity Iwi and hapū of Te Rohe o Te Wairoa will soon determine the Initial Trustees for their Post-Settlement Governance Entity (PSGE), Tātau Tātau o Te Wairoa Trust, with voting closing at 5pm this Monday, 31 October 2016.

With just a few days left to vote, Te Tira Whakaemi o Te Wairoa Chairman Tāmati Olsen is encouraging all those who whakapapa to Wairoa iwi and hapū to get involved.

“We want all our people to have a say on the management of our $100 million Treaty Settlement, for the long-term benefit of the iwi and hapū of the Wairoa Inquiry District,” he says.

“The PSGE is crucial to the completion of our Settlement journey, which was started by our kaumātua and kuia more than thirty years ago.

“Going forward, the Initial Trustees will play an important role in ensuring we build a solid foundation for future growth and development opportunities.”

Tātau Tātau o Te Wairoa Trust will be responsible for receiving and managing the Treaty Settlement redress on behalf of the iwi and hapū of Te Rohe o Te Wairoa.

The PSGE will have a total of 14 Trustees, with each of the seven Kāhui (clusters) within Te Tira Whakaemi o Te Wairoa voting for one Ahi-Kā Trustee and one general Trustee to represent their Kāhui.

Newly-elected Initial Trustees will be announced on Saturday 5 November in major newspapers and on Te Tira Whakaemi o Te Wairoa’s Facebook page, prior to the signing of the Deed of Settlement at the Takitimu Marae in Wairoa on 25 and 26 November 2016.

Tāmati Olsen says it is up to all eligible voters to determine who will represent them on Tātau Tātau o Te Wairoa Trust.

“We urge everyone to vote by Monday and help us choose the best individuals to look after our Settlement funds, to create a brighter future for our mokopuna and generations to come.”

Voting can be completed online or by post. For more information, visit our registration page.

Te Arawhiti is a special five-day hui that has been called for Te Tira Whakaemi o Te Wairoa, the seven cluster groups including iwi and hapū of the greater Wairoa region, to tell their stories and have their historical grievances against the Crown heard and recorded.
