FullSizeRender-22

Hikuranga Takiwa Trust is an entity representing the six pa of Te Whanau a Hinekehu, Te Aowera, Te Aitanga-a-Mate and Te Whanau-a-Rakairoa in Rohenga 5. Whanau in our rohenga affiliate to all the other TRONPnui rohenga as well, so we sent this candidate questionnaire to all TRONPnui candidates to allow us to share the responses within our hapu and Ngati Porou whanui.

It was entirely optional for candidates to participate and some have not provided responses. Thanks to those (in red) who have responded, the answers are thoughtful and many are comprehensive. Feel free to leave comments below if you have feedback on the questions and/or answers. If other candidates submit responses, we will upload them, so please check back before you vote.

Hikurangi Takiwā Trust is pleased to provide a progress update on a number of important projects for the hapū.

Freshwater scientist Murray Palmer shows Makarika School students how to monitor water quality at the Makatote Stream.

He Rautaki Matauranga mo Te Rohenga Tipuna O Hikurangi Takiwa is an initiative focused on mātauranga within the rohe undertaken as a partnership between Hikurangi Takiwā Trust, Te Runanganui o Ngati Porou and the Ministry of Education. The strategic plan for mātauranga within the hapū was developed in consultation with hapū members and educators over 2013 and 2014. Regular reviews are planned and the document driving an iterative process that will change over time as new learning occurs through the activities in the initiative.

Tia Neha is leading an archives project within the initiative that will identify and collate hapū taonga. Tia is responsible for scoping whanau and organisational repositories of/for hapu significant taonga including at least ten priority audio archives held by Radio Ngati Porou. She will lead the design and establishment of appropriate facilities to document and store taonga and references to taonga with relevant access, intellectual property, quality assurance, storage and retrieval protocols.

Ngarangi Walker is leading the Communications Strategy, Takiwa Profile and Marae Reader Sample aspects of the mātauranga initiative. Ngarangi is responsible for producing and publishing a six-page marae reader sample for nga pa tokoono o Hikurangi Takiwa. The elements of design and content will consider whakapapa, whenua, reo and common elements may include pepeha, historic and recent imagery from each pa.

Ngarangi is also developing a communications strategy for and with the Trust to enable nga uri o nga hapu o Hikurangi Takiwa to be informed, participate in information sharing and decision-making processes. The strategy will include a digital platform to support the purpose and aims of the Trust.

In addition to the above, Ngarangi and her team will design a survey and engagement plan with households and landowners within Hikurangi Takiwa, train interviewers/ enumerators and implement the survey within the rohe. She will disseminate research results from this survey.

Pia Pohatu is coordinating participation of the hapū in the northern half of Ngāti Porou in similar mātauranga development initiatives and a copy of the strategic plan for He Rautaki Matauranga mo Te Rohenga Tipuna O Hikurangi Takiwa is available from Pia (Email: pia@uritukuiho.org.nz).
