Our key vision is to enhance the social development and economic advancement of Patuharakeke Hapu while holding fast to our tikanga and kaitiaki values.
Broadly, this entails activities such as seeking opportunities to support the education of our whanau, maintaining the kaumatua flats, engaging in resource management and planning, maintaining relationships with the community, stakeholders, industry and advancing Patuharakeke Waitangi Tribunal claims.
Many whanau and friends have contributed to this website but we would especially like to acknowledge Gilbert Paki, Harry Midwood, Guy Gudex and Paraire Pirihi for providing some of the historical context; David Milner for providing photos and maps, Kieran Connellan for his photos (see www.flickr.com/photos/mrhappy8); Terenga Paraoa Marae Komiti and Te Warihi Hetaraka for allowing use of the kowhaiwhai pattern; Juliane Chetham for ongoing maintenance of the site; and finally Big Fish Creative for pulling it all together.
