Board of Trustees
Archdeacon Harvey Ruru, Chairperson
Te Ātiawa Manawhenua Ki Te Tau Ihu Trust Foundation Trustee since 1993. Former Chairperson, Vice Chairperson and Co Director on Tainui Taranaki ki Te Tonga Ltd to progress our Waitangi Tribunal Claims Settlement alongside Ngāti Tama, Ngāti Rārua, Ngāti Koata and Wai 56 (Wakatu Inc). Submitted personally 3 Waitangi Tribunal Claims for Te Ātiawa hearing and one Hough whānau claim yet to be heard as part of the Waikanae Waitangi Tribunal Claims.
I continue to enjoy all the challenges which many changes have presented over the years. Te Ātiawa presently has huge tasks ahead to ensure the future of our mokopuna is sustained. Many wonderful and beautiful people have been and continue to be on this journey to secure the best for our mokopuna and Te Ātiawa nui tonu.
