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.
