Te Rarawa calls Iwi Summit

Press Release: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Te Rarawa calls Iwi Summit

Te Rarawa recently signed their Deed of Settlement with the Crown for their historical treaty claims, and will now work with the wider iwi during a Summit Hui in Kaitaia from November 22nd – 24th to prepare a vision and plan for their future.

As part of the long term planning process for the iwi 'He Anga Whakamua' Te Rarawa has called the Summit to provide an opportunity for Te Rarawa, whanau, hapu and marae to have input into the future direction of their Iwi. The summit will focus on a wide scope of opportunities for Te Rarawa involving education, the environment as well as social, cultural and economic development.

Te Runanga o Te Rarawa Chairman Haami Piripi says, "We're looking forward to the opportunity to bring home people with skills, talents and knowledge, and to be able to combine these with the people at home who have their own talents, culture and knowledge. This combination will give us a sound platform and should provide some good go forward capacity for our iwi, as we lay down a vision and direction for our collective future."

The opening ceremony for the summit will begin at 11am at the Te Ahu centre on Matthews Ave in Kaitaia on the 22nd November. A range of keynote speakers, interactive workshops and presentations are planned for the Summit which are designed to provide an opportunity for Te Rarawa members to feed into the direction for the iwi as a whole. The summit will also host a special celebration dinner acknowledging the deeds of Te Rarawa leaders who have made significant contributions at a local and national level.
