Manaaki Marae

"Kāore te kumara e kōrero ana mo tōna ake reka."

The kumara does not brag about its own sweetness.

Our trust promotes, celebrates, supports, and raises the profile of our people in their communities of Aotearoa and internationally, Te Ao.

 We grow capability and capacity by supporting organisations kaupapa that are inclusive and involve our people. We provide mātauranga, affordable training, advice, advocacy and recognition for individuals, groups koutou katoa

Our kaupapa seeks to raise awareness and capture the unique stories of our local history, significant landmarks, beautiful people, and sacred places. Our culture and heritage are connected through a Māori world view that embraces wellness concept of Te Whare Tapa Whā to an additional 1000 individuals each year.
