Kia ora whānau

We have been overwhelmed by the support of Whakatōhea members wanting to attend the Agreement in Principle signing in Wellington this coming Friday.

There are two buses and a number of private vehicles travelling to Wellington for this event. Unfortunately, there is limited space at Parliament so only 220 Whakatōhea members are able to enter the hall for the
signing ceremony.

As of this point in time those spaces have been filled but we will be streaming the event on Facebook live and appreciate the excitement that this milestone is creating amongst our Iwi.

The whānau travelling to Wellington will be staying at Pipitea marae and that venue is also filling quickly so people may have to find other places to stay.

We look forward to seeing all our whānau travelling to Wellington.
