AMOKURA:

The Amokura Iwi Consortium Limited is a coalition of seven Iwi CEOs who have come together to create a charitable entity governed by collective strategic interests of Iwi at a regional level.
Amokura's focus is on improving Māori social, cultural and economic performance which is based on Iwi working collectively pooling Iwi influence and resources.  The relationship works well at a CEO level due to shared values, whakapapa, history while maintaining Iwi mana/autonomy that must be consistently upheld.

Te Taitokerau Iwi CEO’s make up the directorship of  the Amokura Iwi Consortium. Transforming Tai Tokerau For Good (TTFG) is currently an informal conglomerate of people and organisations led by the Taitokerau Iwi  CEO’s who have opted to guide the initiative and work plan thus - potentially becoming the owners of the planned TTFG entity, that will work in partnership with funders and business experts.

Transforming Taitokerau for Good is a response from Taitokerau Iwi to disrupt the business as usual systems that have created social, cultural, spiritual, environmental and economic harm and to enable Māori to take charge of their futures, guiding resources to deliver a culturally credible transformation of Taitokerau.  There are currently 20 pilot projects at varying stages of maturity worth $100 million.  These projects have the ability to change the current landscape of the Taitokerau region for GOOD!



Our Manahautū Alan Riwaka is one of the seven CEO representing Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Whātua.   Alan has his finger on the pulse and focussed on how we can Transform our Uri through creating employment opportunities, addressing some of the needs around housing, looking after our kaumātua and our marae are key areas of concerns of the Manahautū.

In order to help re-connect our whānau who have become disconnected from the Rūnanga and Ngāti Whātuatanga. 
It is paramount to gain the trust of our whānau whanui o Ngāti Whātua so we move together as one, whakakotahitanga ia mātou is key. Transforming Taitokerau for Good will help create some positive solutions for Ngāti Whātua Uri.  

An initiative to promote the kaupapa and observations made by our Kaumātua Hauora Marae Challenge Pānui was that “the sleeping giant has just woken up from its long long slumber.Tihei mauri ora”

The Kaumātua Hauora Marae Challenge is a kaupapa created to help fire up the Ahi Kaa of our whānau who choose to represent their marae in a Hauora Challenge, and the importance of Manaakitanga.  This event is also about Mana Ngāti Whātua and bringing our whānau together from the 35 marae that affiliate to Ngāti Whātua and to share in Mauri.

There are also koha up for grabs for marae who have a representative on the day and affiliates to that marae.  This is one way of encouraging our whānau to be more active and having our kaumātua lead by example and role model to our whānau whanui is true Kaitiakitanga in action! Our marae rely on the shared mauri from our kaumātua and this is one way of demonstrating MANAAKITANGA. Every marae that is represented on the day will receive a KOHA! 

Our amazing team here at Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Whātua from Governance to Operations are passionate about supporting our Uri in a way that creates some positive movement forward.
 
 
 
WHO WE ARE
 


Te Kauhanganui o Ngāti Whātua hui:

October 5th 2019 at Te Hana Māori Cultural Centre.
Mana Ngāti Whātua was in full flurry at our hui last Saturday. Our morning started with a meet and greet then whaea Rangimarie Naida Glavish called our manuhiri on.  It was such a blessing to have Tama nui te rā beam in through the front door, which was a lovely site especially with the many whetū themed lights on the ceiling of the Whare. We had some lovely kōrero from our speakers and mātua John Rahui expressed his feelings about visiting Te Hana Māori Cultural Centre for the very first time.

We had a few superstars on the day from our jovial Chair Tame Te Rangi who spoke extremely well and kept everyone in check and a great timekeeper “five minutes per speaker whānau!”

We had some very thought-provoking quotes from our kuia around the importance of whakakotahitanga amongst Māori and Tauiwi and the need to awhi each other. It was the best turnout we have had for Te Kauhanganui o Ngāti Whātua, with over 70+ whānau that came and shared in the kaupapa. 

There were some key points raised around better communication with our Uri especially regarding up and coming hui and the importance of  keeping our whānau updated.  We are creating a more concise process regarding our future hui and endeavour to have all relevant documents uploaded onto our website soon!

Te Kauhanganui o Ngāti Whātua did pass the Charter that reflects the four key areas as per the draft 
[Oct 1995 & Sept 2018]:
  1. Introduction  (Section 4.) Accountability to Iwi – Te Kauhanganui o Ngāti Whātua hui  (Section 6.) Resolution of Conflict    (Section 14.) The Support Services Unit – the entity should be globally referred to as Te Kauhanganui o Ngāti Whātua.  Further resolved to ensure future Ngāti Whātua structures reflect a position of significant influence for Te Kauhanganui o Ngāti Whātua
We would like to thank all our Ngāti Whātua whānau who came along to the hui and big mihi to Thomas De Thierry and the team from Te Hana Māori Cultural Centre for hosting us.
