It is through our deliberate actions that we design our destiny
The programmes and services developed and delivered by Te Taumata are driven by the Ngāti Whakaue Life-Cycle Option. This is based on a philosophy that Iwi have an obligation to meet the needs of whānau, hapū and marae; and that the nature of tribal development is organic, cyclical and reciprocal. As such, our services are wide ranging.
Te Reo me Ngā Tikanga
We run wānanga to support members of the Ngāti Whakaue paepae and those who wish to learn more about the protocols required.
Te Ahu o te Reo Māori
Aims to grow and strengthen an education workforce that can integrate te reo Māori into the learning of all ākonga mai Maketu ki Tongariro.
