Kia ora whānau,

Another hectic month has flown by which has seen a number of activities take place at Takutai o te Tītī Marae. Our pink ribbon breakfast was a great success as was the Western Schools Ki o Rahi tournament. Verdon College also had a noho marae. During the third week of May we completed some much needed mahi to the houses on Rarotoka. This consisted of removing the old chimneys and open fires and installing new fires. We also did an electrical upgrade and some roofing work. This should make conditions a lot more comfortable for our hard working volunteers. [Read more…]

Anita Bay is at the entrance to Milford Sound and is of huge significance to Ngāi Tahu. This was done in conjunction with Nic Low’s hīkoi.

Thanks to our rūnaka executive komiti for their support of this hīkoi. [Read more…]
