    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.

    Contents

    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! 

    Mahinga Kai Challenge– Due to lack of entries the Mahinga kai challenge was cancelled. In order for us to be able to host events of this nature we require the support of nga uri.  Suggestions on events you would like Ngāti Makino to host are welcome
