Our People, Our Future, Our Way Annual Summit
In May 2008, fourteen Māori organisations located in Kāpiti and Horowhenua gathered at Te Wānanga o Raukawa to develop a plan for the advancement of Māori in the region. That plan was launched as Te Aho in 2009 and over the past five years, the groups involved have engaged in activities ranging from whānau self sustainability to exploring iwi investment behaviour. Ten kaupapa tuku iho underpin all that we do from planning, implementation, monitoring and reporting.
At this year’s Summit held on Tuesday 14th October at Te Wānanga o Raukawa, we celebrated Te Aho’s fifth anniversary and brought the strategy to a formal close. As part of the day’s celebrations we launched a publication that describes the Te Aho experiences and launches the Kia Māori 24/7 strategy in its place.
This publication is entitled “Te Aho, the woven strands” the report chronicles the journey that this community of Māori embarked on in May 2009. It is important to thank all those who made this day happen and to all those who were able to come along and celebrate the day. If you wish to have a read of the report feel free to pop in to our office or contact Azriel for a copy on 06 364 8598 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
