"We are Te Puna Ora o Te Iwi"

Ko wai tatou? Who are we?

Te Taumata o Ngāti Whakaue Iho-Ake Trust is a leadership organisation, established by Ngāti Whakaue to achieve the aspirations of the Iwi in the areas of education, language and well-being.

It is a vehicle to drive development in social determinants that we deem are important to us. Through understanding the needs of our people and partnering with like-minded organisations we have developed a range of innovative projects resulting in significant shifts in the determinants of well-being for our people and the community within which we live.

Today we engage with and deliver high quality, whānau-focussed programmes and services to hundreds of whānau, rangatahi, tamariki and pēpi. Our team of over 40 people live and breathe our values of manaakitanga, whanaungatanga, ahi kaa, whakamana and tino rangatiratanga.

Te Taumata o Ngāti Whakaue Iho-Ake Trust Chaired by Rawiri Bhana, with trustees Marg Maniapoto, Merehira Savage, Mokonuiarangi Kingi, Delia Mckinnon and Koeke Trustees, Vicki -Mae Bhana and Leo Rika.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ngāti Whakaue Iho, Ngāti Whakaue Ake 

Ngāti Whakaue Tangata, Ngāti Whakaue Tikanga 

These kupu which were born from a series of hui held by our iwi in the early 2000’s are now used to remind us, to anchor us, to centre us and bring us back to what our purpose as Te Taumata o Ngāti Whakaue is.

Since our establishment in 2005, Te Taumata o Ngāti Whakaue continues to work on making Mokopuna Decisions that sometimes have immediate effect, but others which are part of the intergenerational vision and pathway set down by our Tūpuna that will make differences for the generations to come.  Whether this be a paepae multiple rows deep, or our iwi members being healthy of mind, body and spirit, or our whānau regardless of where they live in this world knowing who they are and where they come from.

As we move forward, as Ngāti Whakaue we are sure of where we want to be, and we are also clear on how we will get there.  Again, our Tūpuna have left us a clear map, and as your Te Taumata o Ngāti Whakaue we will continue to follow the pathway set down previously, we will refine, we will adapt and we will ensure that decisions we make fulfil the moemoea of our iwi.

He maimai aroha ki a Maria Tibble, Bella Tait, Mītai Rolleston, Pīhopa Kingi

Aku manu tīoriori, aku manu hōnenga, ngā kāhu kōrako, ngā kākā kura o te iwi, ngā pou o Whakaue, ngā matatau o Te Taumata – he maimai aroha, he kura tangihia tēnei ki a koutou kua huri kāweka nei.
Koutou kua nunumi ki te kāpunipunitanga o ngā wairua.
Koutou kua whetūrangihia ki ngā kāhui whetū.
Tīramarama mai i te māramatanga kia aratakitaki mai i a mātau kua waiho iho nei
Nā reira, Maria Tibble, Bella Tait, Mītai Rolleston, Pīhopa Kingi.
Ko ngā maumahara me te aroha – ka mau tonu.
Ko ngā whāinga mō te iwi – ka whāwhai tonu.
Ko te rahi o Ngāti Whakaue Iho Ake tēnei; ka tangi iho, ka mihi ake – whakatau, ka tau hā!
