Mauri ora e te iwi,

Several weeks ago, representatives of Ngā Ahi e Toru (Maniapoto, Raukawa me Waikato) travelled to Te Pane o Te Ika, to view the First Reading. Public submissions are now being called for Te Pire mō Ō-Rākau, Te Pae o Maumahara/Ō-Rākau Remembrance Bill. 

This is an opportunity for our whānau to record the names of tūpuna present at the Battle of O-Rākau, and for Ngā Ahi e Toru to exercise the rights and obligations as the registered owner of the Ō-Rākau site. 

Submissions close: 11.59pm, Friday, 14 June 2024
