National information

New Zealand’s COVID-19 response information

We understand that whānau may still be feeling anxious or worried during these extraordinary times. New Zealand’s 4-level COVID-19 alert system specifies public health and social measures to be taken against COVID-19.

The alert system means people can see and plan for the kinds of restrictions we may be required to put in place. This includes escalating restrictions on human contact, travel and business operations. You can find more information here.

Te Roopuu Whakakaupapa Urutā – National Māori Pandemic Group
Our Manukura, Marama Tauranga, and kaimahi Anna Rolleston and Dr George Gray, are part of the Te Roopuu Whakakaupapa Urutā which brings together the countries leading Māori medical experts for whānau Māori. They have developed a great kete of information and resources specifially for Māori about the COVID-19 response. You can find more information here.
Oranga Tamariki
For our whānau that are involved with Oranga Tamariki, we understand you may be under more pressure than usual. Oranga Tamariki provides an essential service to the community and will continue to work throughout the COVID-19 pandemic in a way that keeps everyone safe and is in line with Ministry of Health guidelines. They have set up a special COVID-19 helpline and you can find more information here.

COVID-19 Community Awareness and Preparedness Grant Fund

As part of the Government’s response to COVID-19, new funding is being prioritised to support community efforts on the ground. We recognise there are community groups and individuals doing critical work in the fight against COVID-19. This funding will allow them to continue to support their communities and help them through challenges they may face in the coming months.

What is the Grant Fund for and who can apply?

The Community Awareness and Preparedness Grant fund is available to Community based groups that are or will be providing essential community-led solutions to support local resilience and community wellbeing during the period of Covid-19 - Alert Level 4.

Grants allocated from the Fund will be one-off with priority being given to requests that support Maori, Pacific, older people, people with disabilities, people with current significant health considerations, migrant communities and people who are rurally isolated. You can find more information here.

Ministry of Health
We understand whānau may still be feeling anxious about COVID-19 so we have included a video below from the Ministry of Health featuring our Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern. This is a great tool to help answer some of the pātai our whānau māori have.
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is joined by her Chief Science Advisor Dr Juliet Gerrard and Dr Michelle Dickinson (aka Nanogirl) to answer some commonly asked questions about COVID-19.

Ngā Hauora ā Toi

This week we have a special commentary piece from one of our kaimahi, Dr George Grey (Ngāti Ranginui) who works in our Māori Gains Development and Health team in Tauranga. He gives us an insight into how Aotearoa compares to other countries in the battle against COVID-19.

Te āo ki tua - Looking ahead


Thank you for your incredible efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19. To help align our local efforts with the potential demands on our health services we have been tracking the experiences of other nations with COVID-19. At this stage, the hardest hit among western nations is Italy, while those that responded in a rapid and effective way include Taiwan and South Korea. In our favour in Aotearoa/New Zealand is that our first case of COVID-19 occurred later than other developed nations (Feb 26), but our government was among the first to implement very strong controls on border entry and interpersonal contact. Most confirmed cases in this country have been due to overseas travellers, with only 1% of cases here due to community transmission. Consequently, most cases here have been among the working age population; fortunately a low proportion of cases have occurred among the elderly. This pattern would change if community transmission increased, and we can all prevent that by staying home and keeping to our bubble. Six percent of the 647 cases here have occurred among those of Maori ethnicity. Our Regional Public Health Units and the Ministry of Health have done a thorough job of finding positive cases and tracing contacts of these cases. Though it is early in the journey, the data suggest we are on a path more aligned with the better performing countries than Italy and Spain. We are continuing to review the pandemic modelling and future projections and can discuss this research with providers and partners via group video call if requested. If readers wish to review the New Zealand data it can be viewed on the Ministry of Health website. Global data is summarised at the Johns Hopkins website.

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.

    Tenā koutou Ngāti Mākino

    Your Board of Trustees has been busy preparing amendments to the Trust Deeds for both the Ngāti Mākino Heritage Trust and the Ngāti Mākino Iwi Authority.

    The amendments are necessary to ensure that;

    • the two Trust Deeds are consistent with each other
    • efficiencies now available because of technology improvements can be taken advantage of
    • savings from reduced advertising and notification costs can be realised

    To help clarify what changes are proposed, the attached comparison tables provide a summary of the intended changes.

    The amendments will be explained at the advertised Special General Meeting for Ngāti Mākino Heritage Trust and the Special General Meeting for the Ngāti Mākino Iwi Authority which will follow commencing at 3.00pm on Saturday 7th July. The Special General Meetings will be followed by our Matariki Dinner at Otamarakau Marae. Nau mai, haere mai! Please Register your attendance at Ngāti Mākino Special General Meeting & Matariki 2018.

    Tena koutou katoa,                

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

    From the General Manager Dr Kepa Morgan

    By now you may have looked at the Kia Makino E! 2018 maramataka and either be bamboozled by all the symbols or like me thinking you need more time to go fishing and in the garden. Heoi ano, here are my reflections on a couple of months with the maramataka and what I am learning. 

    The long block of six days with everything on it is “Tangaroa to Otane”. As is suggested this is a time of high activity and energy that I am more aware of due to the maramataka. I noticed that I got through a lot of tasks and was very productive during that time – I would have rather been fishing though, so if you were, then let us know how it went and what you experienced.

    Closely following that block are several days that are good for reflection and contemplation as energy levels have subsided and we should not try to move mountains but rather relax and be happy with the results from the week just passed. 

    No reira, kia piki te ora, kia Makino e!

    Trust Deed Review – The Ngati Makino Iwi Authority are currently undergoing a Trust Deed review to ensure the trusts deeds (NMIA and NMHT) reflect the purpose and function of each entity.  The Trust Deed review will enable NMIA to run their processes in a more efficient way whilst also ensuring beneficiary rights are protected.  Once the final amendments have been approved by the board a Special General Meeting (SGM) will be held in order to approve the Trust Deed amendments.

    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.

    Firewood -NMIA have employed 3 Makino beneficiaries on a casual basis to cutand splitfirewood.  This wood is being offered free to Makino koeke and at a significant discounted rate for Ngāti Makino members.  Contact the officefor more information or to order yours now!
