Board of Trustees
John Katene (JK)
For several years I have held the position of Te Ātiawa Director to Tiakina te Taiao (RMA), and was on the Ngāti Rārua Ātiawa Iwi Trust for 20 years. I am married with four children and eight grandchildren. I work with the Youth at Risk, helping them get their hours done and try to build their self-esteem. I would like to think that I'm an honest person, and am accountable to the Te Ātiawa people. I have a good sense of humour but am really serious about getting down to doing the work for the beneficiaries. My aim is to help build.
