The Maniapoto Māori Trust Board seek to strengthen and enhance te reo o Maniapoto. This will be achieved through collaboration with a number of stakeholders including Te Reo Irirangi o Maniapoto, Maniapoto kura and kohanga reo along with a number of other education providers and government departments.

  • Support Maniapoto leadership throughout the regions thereby giving effect to “Te Mana Whatu Ahuru”;
  • Our cultural identity and wellbeing are key priorities;
  • Maintain and strengthen our reo to reach our full potential;
  • Support and empower Maniapoto marae;
  • Have capability to maintain relationships with whānau no matter where they are in the world;
  • Whānau will be owners of their own well-being.

Te Rautaki Reo a te Nehenehenui Strategy
