This coming July and August the Trust will be sending out a Survey to gather information for future projects. We are looking at what a Te Ātiawa Cultural Revitalisation Plan may look like for us in Te Tau Ihu. It is imperative that we as a Trust embrace and empower our Whānau to know and understand where they have come from and who they represent in our world today.

We learnt some important lessons over Covid-19. One of thoses things was the importance of whānau being there for each other (not all of us were able) due to Lockdown which is why the Te Tau Ihu Tangihanga group was formed. As a Iwi Trust we want to listen to your thoughts on what we could do better. These questions will be simple but specific asking for input into our Cultural Revitalisation Strategy Plan. Questions will be whānau based and will focus on the well being of the whānau in the areas of Education, Balanced lifestyle and Te Ātiawatanga. In July and August I will be at our mārae to discuss these kaupapa and look forward to recieving your Survey feed back on line or in person at these hui.
