Greetings from Hokonui Rūnanga,
It has been a busy few months here at Hokonui, we have had many groups and organisations make use of our new complex for various hui.

Otago/Southland men’s hui

We recently hosted this hui at our complex, it’s always a pleasure to assist with hui like these. New Zealand is one of the worst countries in the world for family violence – we need to step up and make a change. Men from all walks of life are invited to attend the hui which will focus on how men can take leadership to reduce and prevent family violence in our whānau, our communities and our region. For more information you can visit or phone 0800 474 1121.

Chinese Consul-General visit

Jin Zhijian the Chinese Consul-General made a promotional trip to the Hokonui region and visited our rūnanga along with the Gore District Mayor Tracy Hicks and their respective entourage. We were grateful to have the kapa haka group from Longford Intermediate to help welcome them as well as international students from local high schools.
