Since the appointment of Aperahama Edwards as the new Chairman, Ngātiwai Trust Board Representatives have met in person and via zoom to reflect, reset and recalibrate their next steps.
Chairman, Aperahama Edwards, said “A wānanga at Matapouri Marae was planned, however in the spirit of kotahitanga – we met in honesty with open hearts.”
“As Trustees we discussed our shared aspirations for our uri and what will be our priorities moving forward.”
“This will be the first of many Trustee wānanga. We have a shared unity of purpose and desire to move forward together. We plan to move forward with a kaupapa of taking our Trustee meetings
onto our Ngātiwai Marae bi-monthly, bringing our Trust Board closer to our people.”
A reminder on Saturday 5th September, 10am, the Ngātiwai Trust Board will host our next Hui-ā-Iwi at Matapouri Marae and invite all our uri to join us.
“E tātou mā, kua korikori nga Totorore a Te Rangihokaia, its our time to move forward in unity.”
