The story behind Te Tini o Porou
In June 2014 the iconic Gisborne Hotel was purchased by Te Runanganui o Ngati Porou as a place that will become a central hub for the Iwi, offering a range of commercial, educational and community services.
A building which formerly housed a liquor outlet was also included as part of the sale and will be turned into a sport and recreational facility for rangatahi.
We will be redeveloping parts of the main building to create offices and meetings spaces for Whanau Oranga, our social services division. When the renovations are complete these services will be housed here, providing a one-stop-shop for the wider community.
Te Tini o Porou can be translated as ‘The many descendants of Porou’. This name was chosen to reflect the myriad services, skills, talents and people who will use the facility.
