Iwi Publication A First For Tauranga Moana

Iwi Publication A First For Tauranga Moana

An innovative move by the social services arm of Ngati Ranginui to create a vehicle for transferring information throughout Tauranga Moana has resulted in the creation of the Tuake Nei newspaper.

Team Leader of Iwi Social Services, Te Miringa Rawiri, says Tuake Nei, which means stand tall, is the first Maori newspaper for Ngati Ranginui.

"As the name suggests, it is an opportunity for our people to stand tall. It allows us to pass on the positive messages to our people and the Bay of Plenty community," she says.

The vision for the quarterly publication is that it will become renowned throughout New Zealand as a model for how iwi can transmit messages to their uri."

Tuake Nei will give readers information on history, law, the community, marae, and custom, which give reasons why everyone involved should stand tall, says Rawiri.

"The publication will present examples of individuals within the iwi who are making a significant stand through what they are doing or who they are.

Editor of Tuake Nei, Chrissie Rolleston says the newspaper also gives Tauranga Maori the opportunity to develop and strengthen their skills and relationships.

"It is envisaged the publication will foster learning about journalism, news gathering, photography, graphic design, advertising, marketing and communications," she says.

"We welcome any involvement - it may be simply making suggestions on how to improve the content."

The choice and focus of stories will be about encouraging the hapu of Tauranga Moana to stand tall in all they do, says Rolleston.

"Dissemination of information is empowering, and with Tuake Nei it gives us another vehicle to enable our people the opportunity to stand tall."
