Kāi Tahu whānui, tēnā koutou katoa. Nei rā te mihi o Kāti Māhaki ki a koutou katoa. Nei rā hoki te mihi poroporoaki ki kā mate huhua kua hika mai, kua hika atu. Ki a rātou katoa kua hika, haere, haere, haere atu rā. Haere ki te taha o kā mātua tīpuna e tatari ana ki tua o te ārai. Moe mai koutou i te rakimārie. Rātou ki ā rātou, tātou anō ki a tātou.

Makaawhio Film Night 24 April 2016

We will be holding a film evening, with a mixture of recent and historical rūnanga videos and movies at our Marae on Sunday 24th April. The night before ANZAC Day, “movie night” will kick off at 6.30pm in Kaipo and no doubt will provide a few laughs, some tears and another great opportunity for whakawhanukataka!

ANZAC Day Service 25 April 2016

We will again be marking ANZAC Day at our Marae on 25 April, with a commemorative service, starting at 10.30am at our Marae.

Rūnanga website and database

We have been working on a new website for the rūnanga for some time. It is almost ready for whānau to access. There is a members’ only section on the website and in order to access this you will need to be a registered member. Please contact Rachael in the office to check that you are registered.

Keeping in contact

Our recent mail-outs have resulted in a lot of returned mail, which means our efforts to ensure that our membership database is up-to-date, still needs plenty of work. Members can help by contacting the office and checking we have correct address and email contact details for you, your tamariki and/or your mokopuna.
