Maniapoto introduce new Iwi app

Maniapoto introduce new Iwi app

Media Statement 17th October 2017

For immediate use

Maniapoto Māori Trust Board (MMTB) have just released a new app with a main focus of increasing communication and engagement with tribal members.

“E TūManiapoto” is a user friendly, free to download app packed with features to keep our people informed on what’s happening with the iwi.

MMTB Chairman, R.Tiwha Bell believes this is a progressive step in the right direction. “Given that 90% of our people live outside of the Manipoto rohe, we’ve been introducing different ways to keep the iwi engaged and informed. The hui live streams received some great feedback with our people, so we knew the introduction of an iwi app would be another step forward.”

The aim is to provide users with easy to access updates direct to their device. E TūManiapoto is able to send notification and hui reminders to those interested as well as live streams and previously recorded videos. The app also allows users to participate in live chats, share feedback and complete iwi member surveys.

To celebrate the release, MMTB have opened a competition to iwi members for a chance to win the latest iPhone or Samsung. Simply download the app, register with the Maniapoto Tribal Register or update your details if you are already registered, and you’re in the draw. Details can be found at http://www.maniapoto.iwi.nz/app-promo/

“This is just the beginning of what we hope will become the go to point for accessing up to date information on our iwi. E TūManiapoto!” states Bell.

The app is available for download on iTunes and Android stores now.

Gordon Campbell: On How National’s ”New” Welfare Plan Resurrects A Past Failure

Sam Uffindell’s defenders keep reminding us that he was only 16 at the time of the King’s College incident, and haven’t we all done things in our teens that, as adults, we look back on with shame and embarrassment? True. Let's be honest. Haven’t we all at one time or another, joined a gang and beaten a smaller, younger kid black and blue with wooden clubs? In that respect, Uffindell’s defenders on the streets of Tauranga risk sounding a bit like the psychiatrist Kargol played by Graham Chapman on Monty Python. Some of the media commentary has also noted how the Uffindell saga has taken the shine off National’s good poll results and distracted us all from the unveiling of an important welfare policy at the recent National Patty conference. OK… So let's put the spotlight back on that welfare policy...
