Whakatohea commenced their workshops with a Hui a Iwi at Terere Marae on Saturday 01 April.
The presentation is broken into 2 segments, the first segment is to inform the people on the
process and road to settlement and the 2nd segment is the workshop to invite discussion on what
is important for them in achieving settlement as well as to seek our peoples vision and aspirations
for the future post settlement.
90% of our people live outside the rohe with the majority within the greater Bay of Plenty , Waikato
and Auckland we need to canvas their ideas and their dreams (wawata) going forward.
Presentation workshops will be also held in Whakatane , Rotorua, Tauranga , Hamilton, Auckland
and Wellington kicking off this week, and again in the months of May and July.
