ROTOITI - First Division Champion Cup Winners for Queenstown 2019

All the efforts and preparation to finally arrive in Queenstown paid off. To see the kids' faces being at an airport, to watching them go through the process of checking out, from lift-off to being in a place outside their comfort zones was heart-warming. We farewelled two of our Bay of Plenty reps before the starting of the tournament with a hearty haka that left a few tears from our boys to see their brothers leave, so we played for them.

To know we had the support of our families, friends, organisations and Iwi trusts was a bonus. We had many compliments from Air New Zealand attendants, people from all walks of life, on how the kids carried themselves in public with politeness and respect. We represented the club and our sponsors with pride and respect which flowed through our entire tour.

We can't thank you enough for the support.

    Tēnā koutou katoa, Ngāti Mākino

    Kia aho matuahia te taketake – Kia tūwaerea te tau a Mākino. Kia hiwa rā!

    Our team are intent on delivering opportunities for Ngāti Mākino uri both within our rohe and without.

    Progress is occurring on numerous projects at the moment due to the availability of opportunities overlapping. This is placing our organisation under pressure trying to ensure that the best opportunities are able to be realised.

    Aroturuki-ā-rohe / Ecosystem and Cultural Monitoring

    It is our pleasure to welcome John Rapana to our team as Aroturuki-ā-rohe / Ecosystem and Cultural Monitor. John has now completed studies for his degree from the University of Waikato and is contributing his expertise on a number of the projects we are involved in.

    Regional Planning

    There is a lot of activity in the regional planning space with the Plan Changes regarding water being negotiated and the mediation processes requiring a lot of work. We are collaborating with Mōtītī Rohe Moana Trust on Plan Change 9 mitigations and monitoring developments in the other Plan Changes being advanced (PC10, PC12 and PC14).


    We are also continuing to develop our geographic information system database which is the basis for our Iwi Management Plan and integrated catchment management and monitoring. We are working on the details with Regional Council to fulfill this outcome in the near future.

    Ngā Rangahau A Mākino  

    Ngā Rangahau A Mākino is also busy with the second phases of the National Science Challenges all under negotiation all over Aotearoa.  Ngā Rangahau A Mākino have been invited to participate in a couple of challenges and are working hard to ensure that this participation is properly aligned to our strategic plan priorities as the five year timeframe involved requires a long view commitment and a clearly thought through development and implementation strategy. In this regard we are positioning to get the best outcomes from the research to support a land-based aquaculture venture and diversification of forestry options on our whenua.


    Our 2019 Grants round has now closed and many of our koeke who received grants last year have returned their confirmation letters thank you. There may be newly ‘of age’ koeke over this coming year who will need to apply before in the next round as these grants are not automatic. Kaumatua firewood is being processed near Rotorua at a temporary site with a workforce having been inducted and deliveries have started. With the changable weather now and the more challenging work conditions, our team will do our best but this year it may not be possible to achieve the same level of support for our kaumatua. The reasons for this are complex and largely outside the control of NMIA but our Board of Trustees will be looking at a strategy  to create a more permanent basis for this in future years.  

    Wananga Cancellation

    Unfortunately our first 2019 Mākino wānanga on the 16th of March had to be cancelled due to low registrations, while our Deed of Settlement Dinner on the 6th of April has been deferred to be a biennial or two yearly event. We did see many of our koeke at Otamarākau on Friday 29th March when we hosted Te Arawa Pukenga Koeke hui.   

    Office Location

    Finally we are hoping that the issues frustrating our occupation of the Pukehina School research site and the firewood processing can be resolved soon so that the benefits of both of these initiatives can be realised again soon in 2019.

    Turou Hawaiki!!
