Tena koutou e nga iwi o Te Aitanga a Mahaki, me mihi ki a koutou katoa
Welcome from the Chair
The Trust represents its 12-marae spread throughout the largest catchment in the Gisborne region, the 2,200 square kilometre Waipaoa River Catchment.
They are Mangatu Marae, Matawai Marae, Ngatapa Marae, Parihimanihi Marae, Pakohai Marae, Rangatira Marae, Rongopai Marae, Takipu Marae, Takitimu Marae, Tapuihikitia Marae, Tarere Marae, and Te Wainui Marae.
The Trust strives to promote education, social services, health services and other services within our communities of Turanganui a Kiwa, which will benefit those of Te Aitanga a Mahaki descent and advance their independence.
Te Aitanga a Mahaki has a roll of its beneficiaries; it was put together at the beginning of the year 2014 and is in addition to previous rolls of Mahaki uri. With the hopeful settlement of our claim taking place within the next 24 months, the opportunity to revise our beneficiaries roll will take place at that point.
