I, Myra Tipa, am calling a meeting of owners of block 16 Moeraki Reserve to be held at Moeraki Marae on Saturday 31 January at 2pm.

The purpose of this meeting is to ask the trustees to give us a rundown of the said block to inform the owners of the blocks current status, and also to review the trustees and replace them if necessary. I do this because I have never had any information of this kind since I became an owner 40-plus-years -ago.

Please mark 25 – 28 October into your diaries. As well as being Labour Weekend, it is also when we will hold Hui-ā-Tau ki Tāmaki Makaurau Taurahere.

The pōwhiri will begin at 5pm.

Our programme will be available next month and we’re looking forward to another wonderful weekend of whanaungatanga and new experiences.

Ngai Tahu ki Tamakimakaurau

Notice of the next rūnanga general meeting is 6 October, 10am-1pm. This will then be followed by the Wairewa Hui-ā-Tau, annual general meeting (AGM) at 2pm. The AGM will be second due to our intentions to involve whānau in more of the planning, policy and strategic decisions in the rūnanga. We need to take into account the feedback of the proposed planning hui and steer the initiatives with more whānau on board and engaged in decisions of the rūnanga, even the plans for our annual budget.

Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu invites Ngāi Tahu whānau to attend and participate at a tribal wānanga on mining, oil and gas activities in the takiwā on 4 – 5 October at Puketeraki Marae, Puketeraki. 

The tribal wānanga will give an overview of the situation and is aimed at facilitating discussion, sharing current knowledge and identifying gaps in knowledge among Ngāi Tahu about mining, oil and gas activities in the takiwā.  This is in order to prepare for increased activity in new areas of the takiwā, and new activity that is untested in the takiwā.
