Anychance we can have a freshwater hui with the Taurahere??

Kia ora Keita, we have passed on your request to our Chairman.

Kia ora Keita the Ngati Porou WaiMaori working group has agreed to organise a date time to come to Tamaki to present on the Ngati Porou WaiMaori kaupapa. We will liaise with you re dates, times and a venue that is appropriate for us all. 15

In some cases participants/attendees may not have been able to be at their main Rohenga Tipuna but have attended another hui at a more convenient time and location. In these cases how do they find out who attended (at their main Rohenga Tipuna), some contact detail etc. This contact info is important if we are to effectively work towards putting the Hapu Taiao Plans (Cluster Collective) together. Thanks

Kia ora Sean, the Ngati Porou WaiMaori Working Group will establish Contact Lists based on the Attendance Registers of the Ngati Porou WaiMaori Rohenga Tipuna hui.

People who attend a hui in a Rohenga Tipuna that they are not registered in, will, on request be provided with the Contact List for the Rohenga Tipuna they are registered in and wish to participate in.
