Ngati Tamaoho hui-a-iwi

1 min read

The Ngati Tamaoho Trust is calling on all Ngati Tamaoho descendants from the three principal marae, Mangatangi, Nga Hau e Wha and Whatapaka to come with us on a journey.

The trust is engaged in the exciting process of settling Ngati Tamaohos Treaty Claims with the Crown, to resolve all historical claims in our region.

We are holding our monthly hui-a-iwi in Tamaki-makau-rau (Auckland) this Sunday 29th April at Papakura Marae from 9am. Come along even if its only for half the day, you have a right to be involved.

Either email or call [email protected] or call (09) 551-6266 for more information.

Turou hawaiki!

    Heteraka begat waimatao, Rihari, patoromu and hunia.
