2016 has been another year of continuous hard work and achievements for Ngaati Paoa.
I wanted to take the time to "Thank All of You" that have committed and contributed to the cause and the successes throughout the year.
I'd like to personally thank the Ngaati Paoa Iwi Trust leadership and Team for the hard work and dedication throughout the year. Navigating through issues of Council, government and iwi is alway's challenging but I must say, it's also satisfying and rewarding.
By upholding the values and principles of Humility, Inclusivity and Innovation, it has provided a solid platform for the team. We are all still learning and at the development stage and having the support of our Ngaati Paoa Iwi is essential and alway's heartwarming and secure in these arenas.
On behalf of the Ngaati Paoa team, enjoy the Festive Season with your whaanau and friends.
Hope Hanakoko brings you heaps of presents and your tamariki and mokos even more presents....
May the New Year bring light and energy for what we have ahead of us.
Much love and best wishes to you all.
The Ngaati Paoa Report presented at the Ngaati Paoa Iwi Trust hui aa iwi in November 2016 is also attached, for your convenience, and updated with the treaty settlement details.
