TUHONO: Update

"Tuhono is about Màori identity, strong and cohesive iwi, the advancement of our people and ultimately the prosperity of Aotearoa-New Zealand"

Sir Paul Reeves, Chair Tautoko Màori Trust Launch of Tuhono, Wellington, 2 March 2004 Tuatahi - 24 March 2004

In this issue Mihi from Tautoko Màori Trust Chair, Sir Paul Reeves Tuhono mail-out dates confirmed Keeping you in the loop - the Tuhono e-pànui Maori radio, television & print used to promote Tuhono Tuhono launched in Wellington on 2 March 2004 "Why I'm supporting Tuhono." Shane Jones, Chair, Te Ohu Kai Moana Click on to Tuhono at http://www.maori.org

Coming up next week Tºnà koe Tuia i runga, tuia i raro, tuia i te herenga tangata. Tºnà koe, tºnà koutou te whanau. He Mihi atu tºnei ki a koe ki a koutou e noho mai nà i o koutou wà kàinga. Ò tàtou tini mate kua wehe atu i te tirohanga kanohi ºngari ko o tàtou whakaaro e mau tonu ana ki a ràtou. Ko ia te whakatauàki e ràrangi ake nei hei here i te pito ora ki te pito mate, te pito ora ki te pito ora kia kaua ai e motu tþturu te tauia tangata, arà tòu whakapapa. Noho ora mai i raro i te maru o Te Atua.

On behalf of the Tautoko Màori Trust, it gives me very great pleasure to welcome you to this first Tuhono e-pànui.

Like many others, you may know your iwi, but does your iwi know you? Tuhono is a national intiative to connect you to your iwi. It is now only six weeks (3 May) before the Chief Registrar of Electors sends out consent and iwi affiliation forms to the +360,000 Màori registered on the General and Màori Electoral rolls.

The success of the Tuhono campaign - asking registered Màori voters to allow their electoral details to be used to link, confirm and update registration with their iwi through Tuhono, the central Màori Affiliation Service - goes way beyond developing the membership of iwi registers.

Potentially, Tuhono will have a significant impact in promoting awareness and participation in the cultural, social and economic wellbeing of all Màori into the future.

Tuhono will: Provide vital links between individual Màori and their iwi organisations that represent the collective interests of the iwi.

Help iwi organisations to develop and maintain accurate and up-to-date membership registers.

Assist iwi and other Màori organisations develop strong, inclusive, effective and accountable governance structures.

Therefore this places a huge burden of responsibility on all of us to ensure that the Tuhono campaign is a success.

We urge you all to give this kaupapa your strongest possible support.

Sir Paul Reeves Chair,

Tautoko Màori Trust
