Tuia te rangi e tu nei
Tuia te papa e hora nei
Tuia te here tangata
Ka rongo te po
Ka rongo te ao
Tihei mauri ora
Welcome to Te Puni Kōkiri’s effective governance information.
This information is designed to help trustees and directors of Māori organisations with their responsibilities and role as guardians and leaders.
It aims to support those who have taken up that challenge by sharing best practice on the essential elements of effective governance. Whether it’s for a small whanau trust or a major trading company, there are sound principles for safeguarding and growing assets for the benefit of their owners.
But there is no one “right” model of good governance. Māori trustees and directors have followed a variety of pathways to lead their organisations to success for now, and for the generations to come. We hope this site will provide insights to those journeys and show a little of what others have achieved.
Heoi ano, ngā mihi nui ki a koutou katoa.
