Ko Wai : Who We Are
The Ngāti Rehua Ngātiwai ki Aotea Trust Board was incorporated as a charitable trust on the 11th of September in 1985. We acknowledge the many whānau who have fulfilled past roles on the board as leaders and kaitiaki for our people. At the heart of our collective mission is the need to safe guard our whenua, moana and our people.
Through protection of our air and water, of our land itself, and of the health and existence of our communities, we reinforce the message that the old values of looking after the welfare of our future generations still has meaning and, perhaps most importantly, still remains…
Ko Hirakimata te maunga tapu,
Ko te Moananui o Toi Te Huatahi te moana,
Ko Rehua raua ko Te Rangituangahuru nga tupuna
Ko Tukaiaia; ko te Tuatara; ko Te Mauri nga Kaitiaki
Ko Ngati Rehua-Ngatiwai ki Aotea te mana whenua
Ko Ngati Wai te iwi
Tihei wa mauri ora!
