RENA UPDATE: Local iwi meet to talk recovery

Iwi from across the Bay of Plenty have come together to be a part of the recovery process and ensure that there is national learning from this event.

The Te Moana a Toi iwi Leaders Forum was established during the response phase of the Rena grounding as a way for iwi leaders to receive full updates to share with their iwi and hapu. The Forum is now focussed on supporting the implementation of the Long-Term Environmental Recovery Plan.

Te Moana a Toi Iwi Leaders Forum represents the interests of more than 16 iwi whose tribal waters, fisheries assets and people have been affected by the Rena grounding.

Rena Recovery Iwi Liaison Coordinator Jack Thatcher said that this is the first instance where Bay of Plenty iwi have come together in this way.

“While this has been a tough time for us all, it is positive to see that the collaboration of iwi is something good that has come out of the Rena grounding. We now have a structure in place to work together on issues that are important to us all,” he said.

Te Moana a Toi Iwi Leaders Forum, Motiti Maketu (Te Arawa) and East Coast iwi are members of the Rena Recovery Governance Group.
