Take a quick tour around - a constantly evolving platform, structured into five main sections: Kainga (Homepage), Nati News, Nati Story, Nati Life and Nati Biz.

The central organising idea behind this framework was based on the concept of inter-connectedness. Each section could potentially find a relationship with the other four sections in some way: through our past, present and future; through our shared history and whakapapa; through the vast continuum of Ngati Porou development.

For example a user of the site could read a recent article about Ngati Porou’s fisheries quota in the Nati News, which could then link to a historical account about our Iwi’s fishing practices in the Nati Story. This story could then link to a kaimoana recipe in Nati Life, which could then link to an overview about the activities of Ngati Porou Seafood Group in Nati Biz.

To accompany the re-launch of the site we have also introduced a range of official Te Runanganui o Ngati Porou social media platforms: Facebook, Twitter and You Tube (a TRONPnui Linked In account and Instagram account will be launched at a later date). These additional digital platforms provide a way to further help us to connect and engage with Iwi members.

We encourage you to take a tour around, and to send us your stories, photos, panui and feedback.
