About te Houtaewa Māori Charitable Trust
THMCT is a not–for–profit education and development Charitable Trust, for descendants of Ngāpuhi Nui Tonu. They are the Kaitiaki, guardian and curators for the pūrākau of a tupuna, Te Houtaewa.
To contribute towards transforming Hauora Māori from one of our country’s most significant health risks to one of our greatest achievements, for the people of, Aotearoa, New Zealand.
THMCT service objectives respond to Te Tiriti o Waitangi and the need to prevent or mitigate the impact of external threats to whānau, hapū, iwi, and Māori communities as a response to COVID-19 pandemic.
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought new challenges for us all, to maintain a healthy lifestyle, quality of life, and well-being. Preliminary evidence has suggested that higher odds of both mortality and severity of the COVID-19 are closely associated with unhealthy lifestyle behaviours. Thus, to contribute to this challenging global situation.
Rongoā Māori is informed by a body of knowledge that has, as its core, the enhancement of Māori wellbeing. In this way, Rongoā Māori differs from a Western medical paradigm, whose focus is primarily the absence of health and wellbeing and treatments/interventions to return to a state of health. Traditional healing is formulated in a Māori cultural context, in which THMCT delivers services that include Mana Moutuhake (autonomy, identity, and self-actualisation). Traditional Rongoā Māori is where THMCT has invested, Te Houtaewa footprint, to contribute various services into Te Tai Tokerau communities.
