Nga Tama Toa – Prize of Citizenship

Ka nui te mihi kia koutou – kei te maumamahara matou kia Uncle Darcy ma ko tenei kaupapa

Ko tenei korero e pā ana ki te pukapuka rongonui nei, ara Nga Tama Toa: The Price of Citizenship.

Kei te whakamāoritia nga korero, ā, ko Te Runanga o Ngati Porou kei te whakahaere i te kaupapa nei, i raro ano o te mana i tukua mai e nga morehu o C Company o Nga Taonga a Nga Tama Toa Trust.

Ko te reo ake o nga iwi o Te Tairawhiti te reo e whaia ana. Kei te rekoatatia nga korero, ā, kei te whakaahuatia hoki nga wānanga nei i te paetukutuku. Ka whakamāoritia nga korero kua putu ki roto i te pukapuka nei, kia mau tonu ai te ia me te mita o nga reo o nga iwi o C Company, hei taonga tuku iho ma nga uri whakatipu. Ko te reo, ko nga reo ake o Te Whanau a Apanui, Ngai Tai, Rongowhakaata, Te Aitanga a Mahaki, Ngai Tamanuhiri me Ngati Porou.

I whakaarohia me whakahaere nga korero kua whakamaoritia hei kura wananga, ā, hei wenei wānanga ka puta nga uiui me nga whakautu mo nga take e pa ana ki nga whakamāori kua oti. He painga ka puta i nga wānanga nei mo nga tauira o Te Tairawhiti whanui e hiahia ana ki te ako me te pupuri i te reo ake o konei hei taonga mo ake tonu.

Rongowhakaata Website launched

Our Iwi website was blessed yesterday alongside the Rongowhakaata Combined Marae Rangatahi Programme at Manutuke Marae. Kaumatua and rangatahi were presented with the new look by Heather and Ron Stallmach, local web designers and part of the Waipara Whanau. Those of us in attendance appreciated that our website is a place of  whanaungatanga for Rongowhakaata and a necessary tool of communication for this day and age especially when we are endevouring to share as much information as possible about the Claims, Settlement and Ratification of Rongowhakaata Waitangi Tribunal grievances.

Launch of combined Marae Community Max programme

Rongowhakaata Combined Marae have initiated a 6 month community work programme which will be facilitated by six Rongowhakaata rangatahi and a supervisor. This involves Marae conservation and maintenance, environmental restoration works, involvement in the Manutuke Community Enhancement Plan and a commitment to their individual career pathways.
