Te Tairāwhiti: Unlocking iwi potential

Te Puni Kōkiri and Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Porou are working together to further realise the east coast tribe’s development aspirations.

Currently the partnership is developing and implementing a knowledge management strategy which will assist Ngāti Porou to enhance its dissemination of information.

The partnership is also working on a hapū success framework to look at building the strengths and capacities of Ngāti Porou hapū, the establishment of a business incubator to support business growth within Ngāti Porou, and the development of a tribal curriculum using a hapū approach for the restoration of the Ngāti Porou Learning Community.
