Maniapoto Marae renovations underway

Marae renovations are now in progress, supported by funding managed by the Provincial Development Unit. There are 15 marae across the rohe that have received funding to help create jobs and support local businesses respond to the economic impacts of COVID-19. 14 of these marae have clustered together with the Maniapoto Māori Trust Board (MMTB).
“Although the application review process took longer than expected, we are very excited to be able to support our people in renovating their marae, some of which are long overdue” says MMTB Chair, Keith Ikin.

MMTB and the clustered marae received over $4 million in total, with an expectancy of creating 65 jobs to complete the work required. All renovations are required to be completed by December this year.

“Not only will this benefit our whānau and marae, but the local community too, through wages and into local businesses supplying building materials and fittings. One of the key priorities for MMTB and whānau of the marae, is to ensure we provide employment opportunities as well as skills and training opportunities for our people. This ranges from trade training, to financial literacy and budgeting, health and safety, people management and development.”
Mōkau Kohunui Marae trustee, Kristen Pari, is excited for the year ahead.

“We are very grateful for the opportunity to not only renovate our marae but to support our whānau with employment and a chance to reconnect with their marae.”

Mr Ikin believes it’s important to ensure marae facilities can cater to the requirements of our communities. “Marae are often the focal point for our people, reflecting our culture, identity and mātauranga.”

18/19 – Abbey Huriwai

Abbey Huriwai (Ngāti Rōrā, Ngāti Kinohaku) has completed her first year of studies towards a Bachelor of Science double majoring in Environmental Science and Ecology and Biodiversity at Te Whare Wānanga o Waikato. Taking interest in environmental sustainability and the damaging impacts facing our taiao, Abbey would like to use her knowledge to assist in improving Maniapoto waterways and native habitat throughout Aotearoa.

“Last year I took part in a project for change within NZ single-use plastic waste, myself and friends/students challenged Mc Donald’s to adopt a “straw on request policy” nationwide. By October 2018 Mc Donald’s announced they would transition to this policy. I learned skills on how to interest large volumes of people via social media and engagement of youth which would be beneficial for community projects ” says Abbey.

18/19 – Tanirau Manwaiti

Tanirau Manawaiti (Ngāti Rōrā), 2018-19 Graymont (NZ) Limited Scholarship ($1000) recipient, has just completed his first year of study towards a Bachelor of Technology (Environmental Technology) at Wintec (Waikato Institute of Technology). Tanirau has always believed that it is important that whānau and the community are involved and should look to take up Applied Science to achieve increased positive outcomes for Ngāti Maniapoto in the area that associates to kaitiakitanga and the taiao.

“I believe that we must get things right in our own backyard first, then success may breed success as positive outcomes can be shared after thorough and tested application locally.” states Tanirau.
