Te Puni Kōkiri | Celebrating 25 Years

At 25 years, Te Puni Kōkiri has many achievements to be proud of. This milestone gives an opportunity to reflect on what has been achieved by so many dedicated people, both past and present, across the motu.

It is 25 years since Te Puni Kōkiri was established and a milestone like this calls for celebration.
