Further Learning

Inspiring Communities - Embracing Te Tiriti, Fostering Community webinar from April 2022: "In our first webinar of the year, we address the strengths of community-led development (CLD) and honouring Te Tiriti and Mātauranga Māori. How the strands that each hold are sometimes weaved together while at other times they can sit in parallel or alongside in place. Facilitated by Christina Howard, joined by panellists David Hanna, Whananaki’s Pam Armstrong, Jo Brand from Te Rūnanga o Hokonui, and Tony Kake from Papakura Marae."

Report background Inspiring Communities (IC) is the reference point for community-led development (CLD) in Aotearoa. In February 2022, Victor Walker (Te Aitanga-a-Hauiti) was contracted by IC to help the organisation with its Treaty honouring journey mahi. The intention was to have conversations with Māori who have established relationships with IC and CLD to:

  • learn about their experience and what the value (if any) of IC mahi has been
  • explore if and how they see CLD aligning, intersecting, and supporting Hapū, Iwi,
Māori development
  • gather ideas and insights on the most useful roles, steps and mahi for IC and others in this space.
This document is a Summary Report of all that mahi.

Treaty Claims Te Rohe Potae - Claims and geographical area

The Te Rohe Pōtae District Inquiry (Wai 898) involves over 270 Treaty claims. These include iwi and hapū claims, whānau claims, block-specific claims and district-wide claims. A large proportion of the claimants are Ngāti Maniapoto. Other iwi and hapū include Ngāti Kauwhata, Ngāti Tūwharetoa, Whanganui groups, Ngāti Hikairo, Ngāti Toa Tupahau, Ngāti Mahanga, Ngāti Hāua, Tainui Awhiro and Ngāti Raukawa.

The Rohe Pōtae inquiry district ranges from Whaingaroa Harbour in the north, as far east as Maraeroa and Wharepuhunga blocks, and south to the area just north of Taumarunui. Te Kuiti and Ōtorohanga are towns central to the area. The inquiry district contains many wāhi tapu, such as the caves at Waitomo, and Pirongia Maunga. The Waipā River runs through the inquiry district and is one of several important waterways in the area. Kāwhia, too, is of special significance as the resting place of the Tainui Waka.

Newsletters and websites E-Tangata online magazine.  Can subscribe. 

E-Tangata is an online Sunday magazine run by the Mana Trust, which is dedicated to building a stronger Māori and Pacific presence in the New Zealand media.

The website is not-for-profit and is largely a labour of love by a part-time team of accomplished journalists and writers who want to see, throughout the mainstream media, a more balanced and better informed reflection of New Zealand lives and issues.

We’re doing our part by specialising in stories that get to the heart of what it means to be Māori or Pacific in Aotearoa.
