Huia te rangi e tū, huia te papa e takoto! Huihuia mai e te iwi! Tātou, kei ngā hau e whā o te motu; tātou kei ngā kura whenua o te Ao, tēnā huihui tātou katoa!

As you will recall, in August 2022, Te Nehenehenui held a series of iwi engagement hui across the motu, seeking whakaaro from our people on our iwi aspirations moving forward.

From April 2023, we will be holding another series of engagement hui, sharing feedback received from our previous hui. This has helped inform our 5-Year plan, which will also be presented at the hui. A Te Nehenehenui elections update will also be provided.
