He Oranga Hapori: A model for raising Maori ... - Te Puni Kokiri

Those groups included iwi and hapü representatives, industry sectors including landincorporations, enterprise, health and social service providers, educationalists, retailers,manufacturers, business services and others. Over the period of one day, the group worked toprepare a Mäori regional plan with a vision for a Mäori community with strong whänau, skilledindividuals and organisations, plentiful and healthy natural resources, supported by the widersociety; living within kaupapa and tikanga.The Te Aho community has grown to include our whänau, hapü, iwi, Mäori businesses, andbusiness associations, service providers, the Councils, government agencies, and a range offunders.It’s important to understand that Te Aho is not a legal entity – there is no bank account and noconstitution. It’s a collective, a strategy that moves across the whenua of five Iwi and territoriesof two district Councils. As projects are developed by the groups, one or more members willapply and receive funding for that project. As an example, the Mäori business network receivedthe funds for the coordinator’s salary from Enterprising Communities; the Mäori economicdevelopment agency received the marketing funds from Te Puni Kökiri; a PTE received thefunding for the development of the literacy and numeracy programme from TEC; and maraegenerally receive the funding for the kaumätua and rangatahi forums from Pub Charities etc.This is a strength of Te Aho; everyone makes a contribution, everyone benefits, and everyone isaccountable. In the expanded rohe Te Aho is now accountable to a population of 76,000 Mäori,with five iwi, 36 hapü and almost 700 Mäori businesses.Appendix 8: Potential for Manawatu groups to raise Māoricommunity wellbeingKAUPAPA & TIKANGAWhakapapa1.
