Kia Makino Reo Strategy– Te Reo strategy has been implemented in four centres throughout the Bay of Plenty (Kawerau, Otamarakau, Maketu and Rotorua) in order to revitalise the Reo in our homes, on the marae and within our rohe.
It is our aspiration that:
“By 2028 Ngati Makino reo thrives on our marae in our homes throughout our boundaries and where ever Ngāti Mākino uri live.”
There are still spaces available on this programme so if you are interested in attending our Reo classes please contact the officefor more information.Previously funded by Te taurawhiri I te reo; this initiative is now funded by Te Matawai o Te Arawa.
Moutoroi Pa Site– Huiterangiora convened to bless the Moutoroi Pa site prior to the removal of Pinus Radiata which was wrongly planted in the 80s. Moutoroi Pa is to be replanted with native species to reduce the chances of self-seeding Pines. The Pa site is adjacent Te Kuha A Makino, the headwaters of Waitahanui, and effectively extends the native bush buffer that protects our Taonga from the impacts of commercial forestry operations.
