Whakatōhea Māori Trust Board Announces Historic Transition to Te Tāwharau o te Whakatōhea

Tēna tātou e te whānau,

As we reflect on our 180-year journey, we honour the legacy established by our tīpuna and look forward to a prosperous future where our tamariki and mokopuna will thrive. The transformation of the Whakatōhea Māori Trust Board into Te Tawharau o Te Whakatōhea represents not only a change in name but a continuation of our iwi growth and safeguarding our cultural and economic assets. 

"Te Tawharau o Te Whakatōhea will continue our iwi journey, focusing on the ongoing growth of our cultural and economic assets and the intergenerational well-being of our moana, whenua, people," states the Trust Board. Over the next two months, the respectful winding down of the Whakatōhea Māori Trust Board name will occur, with operations continuing seamlessly under the new entity. 

As Matariki appears in the predawn north-eastern sky, we take this time to remember those who have passed, reflect on our learnings, and prepare for the future. This period of reflection and renewal is a fitting time for Whakatōhea and the journey forward.

Mānawatia Whakatōhea, tu ake Whakatōhea!
