“Whaiaa ko te mana motuhake”
Tribal identity & integrity
“Ko Tainui te waka, ko Taupiri te maunga, ko Waikato te awa, ko Pootatau te tangata
Waikato taniwharau, he piko he taniwha, he piko he tanwiwha”
"Ki te moemoeaa ahau ko ahau anake; ki te moemoeaa taatou ka taea e taatou”
Ngaa Tohu Framework: Our five-year plan
Our settlement has enabled the building of a solid financial foundation. Armed with Whakatupuranga 2050, we have a blueprint for the cultural, social and economic advancement to build for better outcomes for our marae and tribal members.
In the changing global environment the world our future generations live in will be significantly different to ours. So our approach for moving forward is one that embraces change and focuses on supporting our marae and tribal members by optimising our resources, leveraging our relationships, and exhibiting efficient practices.
The prioritised work streams that are now seen in the Five Year Plan have been developed to deliver outcomes in line with our three strategic objectives, our Ngaa Tohu framework, and our Whakatupuranga 2050 aspirations.
