Tena koutou katoa
I hope everyone has had a safe, enjoyable festive period, with wha¯ nau and friends.
Rangita¯ ne o Manawatu¯ look forward to a rewarding and fulfilling 2019. Our investment trust will begin some major property developments in the city to contribute to employment and economic opportunities while creating a return for our beneficiaries. This is an exciting step in our post settlement development. Our settlement trust will be providing programmes for our beneficiaries in the kapa haka, te reo and education space. Our focus is on creating a pathway through education so our tauira can realise their full potential, participate fully in society and achieve whanau ora.
As tangata whenua, we take the stewardship role of our people seriously and are committed to our region’s identity, growth and future.
