This positive outcome means we can move forward with the Unit Trust Model, and the Kāhui representation it is underpinned by.

On behalf of the Trustees of Tātau Tātau o Te Wairoa, we wish to acknowledge all whānau who voted in support. Tēnā koutou!

This is a very exciting time for our whānau, hapū and iwi. It is the start of a new era – and it has been more than 30 years in the making. We can finally move forward, and start seeing the benefits for our iwi, hapū and whānau!

The Trust and your Kāhui will be in touch with you over the coming months on next steps, and with more information on how you can be involved.

The result of this vote means that your Kāhui can start working to benefit you, our people. This is our time to start achieving culturally, socially, and economically. This is our time to make things happen for our future.

What happens now?

  • The Trust will make the required changes to the Trust Deed
  • New Kāhui Tātau Tātau Representatives will be elected by the end of March 2019. The Tātau Tātau representatives will be the directors of the Corporate Trustee of Tātau Tātau o Te Wairoa Trust.
  • Our new Tātau Tātau Representatives will focus on finalising Tātau Tātau o Te Wairoa’s Five-Year Strategic plan which is currently in draft form.
  • A consultation process will be run next year amongst our members so that we can get your feedback on this important document.

Ka mihi ki a koutou i tautoko mai. Together we are Tātau Tātau!
