around Te Waipounamu and it will remain here until April 3 to be enjoyed by all whānau.

This time of year is always busy for Ngāi Tahu but it seems that in the final quarter of 2010 we have more than our usual amount of activities to look forward to.

Another important December date will be the opening of Te Ana, the Ngāi Tahu Rock Art Centre. The Trust reached an important milestone earlier this year when it managed to attract the final piece of the total $2.7m needed to fund the centre and work is in full swing ahead of the opening date.

Your usual routine may be to pack for Hui-a-Tau in late November. However, if you live in Murihiku you may wish to travel earlier in the month, in order to attend the closing weekend of Te Hokinga Mai incorporating the Mō Tātou: The Ngāi Tahu Whānui Exhibition at the Southland Museum and Art Gallery on November 13 and 14. The closing weekend will likely include some workshops, details of which will be published closer to the event.

In summary, the trick will be to keep an eye on the website for details and to keep reading Te Pānui Rūnaka. It is refreshing to focus on all these celebratory events, especially given the recent earthquake and aftershocks in Waitaha region. Nothing can be better to reduce stress than having a great event to look forward to – so start your planning now and if nothing else, make space in the diary to attend Hui-a-Tau.

Hui-a-Tau this year begins with a powhiri at 4pm on Friday 19 November and then continues over the weekend. It is being held at Kāti Huirapa Rūnaka ki Puketeraki, 121 Grimness St and Barvas St, Karitāne. Accommodation in Dunedin is a 30-minute car ride away, although the Ngāi Tahu website lists some additional accommodation options in nearby towns.

In closing, I invite you to turn to the centre pages of this edition of Te Pānui Rūnaka to read a four-page summary of the Annual Report for 2010. There is good news to be found there. Despite the ongoing effects of the financial recession, Ngāi Tahu can be extremely proud of its achievements for the 2009-2010 financial year. All the key figures are included in the summary but if you are seeking greater detail, the full online Annual Report is available on the website: . You can also ring Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu to obtain a hard copy version.

November is packed with special events – on the final weekend of the month the Tīpuna Whare at Rāpaki will be opened, an event that many are looking forward to. It is also likely that there will be one more iwi leaders forum held around around this time also. And don’t start thinking about Christmas too early because if you are Otago based, there will be an opening of the Mō Tātou: The Ngāi Tahu Whānui Exhibition on December 4. This is the exhibition’s final stop on its tour

Te Rūnanga o Maakawhio Kāi Tahu whānui, tēnā koutou!

Edwards, who also stepped down three years ago after many years of service, mainly as secretary.

Kai te mihi atu, kai te taki atu ki kā tini aituā kua karakahia e Hine-nui-te-pō ki tōna Whare o Pohutukawa. Ki rātou kua hīkoi atu ki tua o te arai mai Muriwhenua ki Rakiura, tae noa atu ki kā motu kē o te ao, haere, haere, haere atu rā. Moe mai koutou i te rakimārie.

Our upoko rūnanga Wilfred Te Koeti did not seek reelection due to ill health. Uncle Wilfred was in the role for about 10 years ably representing us and providing a quiet, steadying influence on our rūnanga. At all times he carried the position with the dignity befitting the role as our leader. We wish him and Aunty Joy happiness in their retirement, and look forward as always to catching up with them at Mahitahi whenever the whitebait lures them back! Deputy upoko Archdeacon Richard Rangi Wallace was installed as our new upoko, with resident kaumātua Maxie Duncan unopposed as deputy upoko.

Rātou ki a rātou, tātou anō ki a tātou. AGM and New Executive Some familiar faces have returned to the Rūnanganui (Executive Committee) with our three-yearly elections at the AGM at Te Tauraka Waka a Maui Marae on Saturday 23 September. After three years in the hot seat, kaiwhakahaere Sister Tui Cadigan has stepped aside to concentrate on her new and demanding position with the Sisters of Mercy Ngā Whaea Atawhai head office, in Wellington. Kei te mihi ki a koe. Sister Tui’s replacement is her predecessor, Paul Madgwick, who stepped down from the role in 2007 after six years. He is supported by a new deputy chair Kara

A proposal in the new draft constitution to delete the positions of upoko and deputy upoko was defeated, with an amendment that the positions be confirmed for the next six months, during which time the incoming executive will review whether or not to continue the positions. This will be subject to a special meeting of members.


The new executive is: Richard Rangi Wallace (upoko), Maxie Duncan (deputy upoko), Paul Madgwick (chair), Kara Edwards (deputy chair), Susan Wallace (secretary), Stuart Barr (treasurer), Gary Coghlan, Marie Mahuika-Forsyth, Terry Scott, Pauline Adams (executive positions), Tim Rochford (TRONT rep). TRONT alternate rep position is vacant.

be registered with the Companies Office. The proposal to remove the positions of upoko and deputy upoko, and a separate proposal to establish a Kāhui Kaumātua were set aside for further deliberation by the new executive. Do we have your correct contact details? Please contact the office on 0800 955 007 or by e-mail to keep your contact details up to date.

Constitution Review The AGM was preceded by a special meeting to vote on the new constitution. This almost concludes a process started nearly six years ago! After consultation with whānau, a new draft was put to the hui and most of those changes were approved, effective as soon as they can

Te Ngāi Tūāhuriri Rūnanga Inter-Marae Rugby League and Netball The rugby league team has begun practice ready for this year’s annual Pā Wars between Rāpaki, Kaikōura and Tuahiwi. If you are interested in playing for the Tuahiwi team please contact Mathias Pitama on 021 297 3099.

We are all sad to see the departure of our administrator Amour Ryan who has left us to take over the Okains Bay shop. She served us well and we are going to miss her heaps! If any whānau are in Okains Bay stop in and say “Kia ora” to Amour. (Rumour has it that they do great large-sized ice creams.)

Our netball practice is scheduled for 10 October, Tuahiwi School at 2pm. If you want to be part of the netball team please come along to this training or contact Melanie Taite-Pitama on 021 184 9344.

We would like to welcome aboard Tania Wati as our new administrator. Please update your contacts with the new email address for Ngāi Tūāhuriri Rūnanga: Tuahiwi.

caused. It was only after very careful and considerate thought that the Rūnanga Executive agreed to continue on as planned.

Rā Whānau ki a koutou Cyrus Te Māio Mafeking Hūtana-Waitoa, Rosemary Read, Auntie Rima Subritzky, Uncle Ray Kamo, Reuben Thompson, Maurice Rehu, James Thompson, Te Whe Phillips, Michel Radford and Mariana Philllips, Huia Rhodes, Cassandra Lee, Sally Pitama and all others celebrating their birthdays in October – happy birthday.

Annual Report On the cover this year features a photo of one of our totara trees growing up on the reserve. It is one of 50plus totara that has been planted as part of Project Totara (buy a totara) is one of two fundraising initiatives that contribute to our new Rāpaki Tīpuna Whare. Thank you again to those whānau who have generously put their name and money towards this worthwhile project. As you can see they are doing well, and by the way it is not too late for others to participate in this fundraiser, just make contact through the Rāpaki office.

Congratulations A big mihi to Rangitane Thompson on his Rangatahi Award acknowledged by Te Puna Wānaka for He Rei Puta (Sporting excellence).

The Chair’s report contained acknowledgements firstly to Wally Stone and Gail Gordon as TRONT Representative and TRONT Alternate, June Swindells, Herena Stone, Mariata Laffey, and Doug Couch as the Rünanga executive members.

Annual General Meeting The number in attendance at this year’s AGM was considerably smaller than in previous years. This wasn’t entirely unexpected given the disruption that Rūaumoko


Rāpaki Tīpuna Whare Opening 27-28 November We have now begun the countdown and remind you all to please let us know if you are coming, and particularly if you are coming to help or need help with accommodation (there will be no accommodation available at the marae). The official opening ceremonials are to take place on Saturday 27 November; Sunday 28 November will be kept for whānau. There is a register at the Rāpaki office for those who are willing to volunteer for mahi – so far there are two names on it, so come on whānau, don’t wait until the last minute we need to know these details now! You can either contact Gail Gordon direct on gail.rapaki@ or leave your details at the office, phone 03 328 9415

Secondly with the opening of our new whare whakairo, “our legacy to our tīpuna and mokopuna alike, was acknowledgement of the contribution of all the whānau whānui living and departed …”, chair of the project board, Tutehounuku Korako, Dorothy Couch, Yvette CouchLewis, Aunty Doe, Riki Manuel, chair of the cultural committee Riki Pitama, and the Rāpaki whānau. Thirdly there were acknowledgements to the office staff. A new initiative has been the introduction of portfolios for executive members, with the aim of working towards the development of a business plan, a chairman’s forum, and ultimately financial independence. Education, environment, culture and identity, Rāpaki Marae Development Project, health and employment reports followed.

Te Haahi Weteriana The current President Alan Frith-Upson and Vice President Lana Lazarus (Te Taha Mäori) of the Methodist Church of NZ were in Ötautahi visiting congregations affected in the recent earthquake. They also made a visit to Rāpaki to enquire after our health and wellbeing.

Directorships Te Poho o Tamatea Board There are still two positions vacant and one is for an independent director. If you know of someone who is suitably qualified, or if you have financial knowledge, business acumen and strategic insight yourself, then please register your interest with the Rāpaki office.

Te Rūnanga o Koukourarata somewhat untouched as you can see by the photos. We were quite fortunate that our end of Hereford St suffered little or no damage and with the exception of the lifts being out for a while, life returned to normal relatively quickly despite the ongoing aftershocks.

Nau mai e kera ki te kāika e pepehatia… Congratulations to Nani-Pera Moka and Wiremu Johnston on the birth of their beautiful baby girl born Sunday 19 September. Waihou-Kairo Te Puna Whakaaio MokaJohston was 8lb 8oz when born. Mum and bubz are both well and doing fine…

Waihou-Kairo Te Puna Whakaaio Moka-Johston. Aurere ana te whenua, ngunguru ana te whare! Well life post 4 September in Christchurch continues on, nearly 1190 aftershocks have occurred at the time of writing this with only four days where there were less than 10 aftershocks (the most was Monday 7 September with 236 aftershocks). Many of the whānau have become pretty good at guessing the size and depth of the aftershocks and most magnitude 2 or 3s go unnoticed with the odd magnitude 4 warranting attention, particularly early in the morning. (Mayor Bob Parker calls them the Christchurch alarm clock.) Our office reopened with the rest of the CBD on 13 September. We were greeted by the photocopier that had made its way into the middle of the floor and books thrown randomly on to the floor while others remained

Te Rūnanga o Koukourarata and our Canterburybased whānau extend our heartfelt thanks and acknowledgement to everyone who has been helping with the recovery from the earthquake. From the staff of the City Council, Emergency Services, the Army, the power, water and sewerage companies who have been working around the clock to restore normal coverage; to the Civil Defence volunteers, Red Cross, the Salvation


Army and Sam Johnston and his “silt worms”, the student volunteers who came and helped get rid of the silt from the liquefaction.

but Canterbury, and Te Waipounamu. So the only way I can try and express my feelings and those of my whānau is through writing. When I awoke  from the jolt then rolling motion of the quake I immediately started doing the (thunder-lightning) countdown! The 1000, 2000, etc? I think I got to 3000, before I started to get out of bed, and roll underneath. That didn’t work, because  the bed was too low and I actually fell out! Swearing quite loudly I called to my flatmate. Then all went dark and very quiet. We were both unharmed, and our next door neighbours were out checking on us all. My immediate concern was power, then my whānau who live at opposite ends of Christchurch. Texting became a priority over any other considerations. My better judgement was to get in my flatmates car and go to see how my moko and daughter were. My Hastings flatmate, best friend and practical advisor, reminded me it was too dangerous at that time to use the roads. Thankfully we were prepared for such an event (with the exception of water ready to use, which we have corrected now). We had torches, candles,  battery operated radio, and cell phones. No sleep, just waiting for dawn was, for me one of the longest dawn awakenings ever. Thank goodness someone invented the cell phone. By 8.30 I was out the door heading to my brother and  sister’s place. My daughter had gone to  her partner’s whānau, so they were safe.

Special thanks also to our whānau members who also pitched in to help their communities and who also travelled to Kaiapoi to help clean up there. Thanks are also extended to Anake and his staff for their technical support to enable our administrator to keep our office operating remotely and keep our taurahere whānau and close to home informed with email and Facebook updates … lastly, thanks to the universe for bringing us all safely through. Now if they could just do something about stopping the aftershocks…!

Going to see my bro, he was outside of their whare, with his whānau and neighbours. My brother had erected a makeshift tent and was having coffee and tea on their front lawn. I had all intentions of heading home to Koukourarata, as soon as Papatūānuku moved. I wanted all my whānau to leave Christchurch, get in vehicles, row boats whatever and go home! Funny thing is ... most people thought about a tsunami hitting there. Mine was, at least whatever happens we are home and our tūpuna will be with us. So with that in mind I went to my sister’s home.

Te Atakura 2010 is the next highlight on the calendar and despite the aftershocks, our whānau have been practising in preparation for the big day to be held at Aurora Centre Burnside High School. This year’s hosts are Ngāti Wheke. Before moving on, Te Rūnanga o Koukourarata would also like to extend our heartfelt aroha to all of our whanauka who have lost loved ones over the past month… Nō reira koutou o te huka wairua haere atu rā, moe mai rā i kā peka o tō tātou nei Ūkaipō. Mā te Atua koutou katoa e manaaki e tiaki. Apiti hono tātai hono rātou ki a rātou ka moe, āpiti hono tātai hono tātou te huka ora ka noho, pai marire!

Thankfully, my nephew had arrived back from Timaru before the earthquake hit and so my sister had her son there with my niece and her friend. They had no water or power, so the most logical thing for us was to head to Koukourarata. Still I had to persuade my nephew home was the safest. My cousin had texted, saying she was opening our marae up to our whānau. That was the closer we were out of Ōtautahi.

PAPATŪĀNUKU IS ON THE MOVE Josephine Briggs’s account of the events of Saturday 4 September and the days immediately following.

Two hours later we arrived at our cousin’s home in Koukourarata. Other members of our whānau were on their way home too. For me, having Aunty Meri, Uncle Charlie and Aunty Aroha, made not only me, but my own whānau, feel like Ma (our Mother) was with us. Now I’m constantly being reminded she and our own are around! Personally, I cannot begin to describe how it has felt to be with my/our whānau. To share this traumatic and may

To my whanaunga and whānau, I would like to share my experience and some of my whānau feelings of 4 September and up until now. I started to write this unusual and now significant series of events at home at Tūtehuarewa Marae. I’m still trying to process and truly capture my emotions of the impact on not just Ngāi Tahu,


be “an act of God” or if we are truly honest, “Humanity Destructive Act” on Papatūānuku!! I want to  coin “Humanity Destructive Act” instead of an “Act of God”! Sharing my and my whānau story of our two weeks over home is one that needs another place to fully give the aroha it deserves. In winding up, I am going to try relating how this experience has impacted and drawn my whānau closer again. Also how I perceive Cantabrians/ Ngāi Tahu/Aotearoa and global peoples will record this event in the historical records.

whānau celebrated her birthday in style. Rā whānau Kyra! Port Levy/ Diamond Harbour overview of 4 September The following has come from the Port Levy and Diamond Harbour residents debriefing summary provided by Marina Hughes. Like all Cantabrians, the residents of Port Levy were woken by the violent shaking in the early hours of Saturday 4 September. As a small community, once people became aware of what had happened they began to ring round and check on their neighbours. Whānau member and resident Gina-Lee Robertson checked the marae to ensure that there was no damage and then began checking on fellow residents.

We as New Zealand/Aotearoa were not given the name “The Shaky Isles” for nothing. Recorded history has documented and analysed since, so no denying this fact. We as human beings have the technology to look, analyse and (in the future), predict nature/Papatūānuku adverse effects globally.

The water became a major concern in Diamond Harbour because the mains water pipe had broken at Lyttelton. Although it was repaired quite quickly compared to other areas of Christchurch, Diamond Harbour was without water for some time. Port Levy residents were not affected because they have water and sewage tanks. Over several days, bach holders arrived in the bay following the big quake to check their homes. The main damage to residents’ homes in the area appears to be chimneys, and water cylinders.

Funny thing is I have had conversations with a few academics, professional people in their chosen fields as well as whānau, friends, etc. What I have found interesting in these conversations has been the following terms: “Act of God”, “the gods aren’t happy” and “there is more to come”. There has been nothing about “humans take up more land, pollute the air, dig gaping big holes in mother earth”. Nor has there been mention of how we “bomb each other because of religious, racist, fascist, economical, or political beliefs etc”. As being part of the human race, I agree we belong together. However, we in Aotearoa need to start truly caring here at home. I have witnessed this on a whānau level, to being a Cantabrian, to Aotearoa, and a global whānau member. Maybe Papatūānuku needs to be named more frequently, with the respect she deserves because I am finally acknowledging she is a breathing, functioning being in her own glorious rite! Nā Josephine Briggs

The Diamond Harbour Fire Brigade, in addition to making sure folk were safe, took down chimneys, checked roads and road access from Teddington to Purau. By 10am on quake day, Fulton Hogan had checked the road from Purau to Port Levy. The Diamond Harbour Fire Brigade also provided interim information until the Diamond Harbour Civil Defence, based at the school was appraised of the local situation and swang into operation. The Diamond Harbour Health Centre received many phone calls for information. The district nurses did the usual rounds and checked other patients of concern. Everyone coped well until the Wednesday 5.1magnitude earthquake centred in Diamond Harbour. Naturally this unnerved people particularly as there was increased thermal activity in the area. Scientists and geologists noted that this was common with earth movement of this size and they reassured everyone that this new earthquake was not a volcanic earthquake but part of the original quake.

A Birthday to Remember

So far the aftershocks, although felt, do not appear to be as severe in Port Levy as the city with many of us sleeping through most even the magnitude 4s. Get prepared, get through! This has become the mantra for many Cantabrians. Going forward whānau we still need to make sure we re-stock or get together our “get-through” kits. And just quietly those of you who live elsewhere would be wise to also take heed as none of us thought this would ever happen to us.

Kyra Robertson will always remember her 8th birthday, not only for the fact it fell days after the big Christchurch earthquake but also because Te Tai Tonga MP and Māori Party member Rahui Katene also popped in for a visit. A wonderful birthday tea was provided by the Crofts/ Briggs whānau at the marae for Kyra and she and her


I put my kit together a couple of years ago and restocked last year in preparation for the swine flu pandemic that was meant to hit. I thank the universe for sick pigs otherwise I would never have had things ready for the “week” that was. A reminder to whānau who need assistance to contact WINZ or ring 0800 779 997. Here are some other reminders provided by Marina for “getting through” an emergency event: 1. Set up a system of neighbour support to check six houses in your immediate area. Don’t assume folk are okay, check and go inside and see for yourself. 2. Always have a landline (old fashioned) cord phone because these work without electricity, unlike the cordless phones. 3. Place a torch and slippers by your bed to avoid broken glass. 4. Avoid using candles as they can create a whole new problem should they be knocked over.

“Breakfast for Canterbury” in full swing.

Breakfast comes to Christchurch If we didn’t have enough to cope with, Paul Henry and the Breakfast crew came to town on Friday 24 September as part of a fundraiser for those affected by the recent earthquake. The three hours was filled with music from Kiwi artists many of whom were from Christchurch. Despite the technical difficulties that meant we were unable to hear Henry’s usual twaddle, the atmosphere was festive (probably due to the fact we couldn’t hear Henry). It was great to see Tamati and local boy Corin (from the Business desk). Paul Henry is a lot taller than I thought and Pippa is stunning in person (TV does not do her justice). A big thank you to the organisers, bands and volunteers for a great start to Friday morning… [Insert Photo: Bkft in da Square]

Deans Homestead. Earthquake: An antique plate falling from the shelf, The television hitting the ground, Everything moving around me, Not being able to see. Children screaming, not knowing where you are, What is happening here? Where can I run to and hide? This is not like a roller coaster ride! The children are in my arms, Not knowing what will happen next. No power, no lights, a little voice asks, Is this the end of the world? I pause, I Pass! What do I do? Are we ok? What about next door? What about Dad? An antique plate falling from the shelf, Don’t care, that is not my wealth. My family are all here, By candlelight we sit, No power, no water, no phone, We are here together and not alone.

Earthquake Week And what a week it was! The following is a short report from our rohe, Selwyn, and how the earthquake affected us. Te Waihora was fairly unaffected by the earthquake, but the communities first concern was whether the quake was land based or from the sea. As discovered, it was a land-based quake. One of the oldest taverns in New Zealand, the iconic Lincoln “Famous Grouse Hotel” was severely damaged. The manager, Craig Bradford, is hoping the tavern will be up and running again before the Rugby World Cup. Other notable buildings affected were: St John the Evangelist Catholic Church spire in Leeston; and the Soldiers Memorial Hall in Lakeside. Governor-General Anand Satyanand visited some of Selwyn’s worst-affected areas last week, also Prime Minister John Key has been out and about in the Selwyn area looking at affected areas. A section of Highfield Rd, near Darfield was moved 3 to 4 metres. Selwyn Bridge (Chamberlains Ford) was unsafe to cross for a few days, along with other bridges in the rohe. Cracked roads, falling chimneys, splits in houses, silos have toppled, and crops have been damaged. The support from the community and beyond has been amazing! We will rebuild, we will carry on, we will still be here. Thank you to everyone around New Zealand who has supported Canterbury during this traumatic event.

This was a busy time for Amber who has also been busy preparing for the recent New Zealand Fashion Week with her label Kahuwai www. Pou Haki The old lightweight flagpoles at the marae could not stand up to the strong Puketeraki winds any longer, so our talented craftsmen have handcrafted three magnificent new flagpoles strong enough to stand at the marae for many years to come. There was a ceremony held on 4 September to dedicate our new flagpoles.

New rules for East Otago Taiäpure After much hard work by the East Otago Taiäpure Management Committee, the Ministry of Fisheries has introduced new fishing regulations for the East Otago Harbour Taiäpure effective from 1 October. The Committee invites the community to join with them in celebrating this move toward protecting the taiäpure as a sustainable, healthy fishery in order to provide for the community’s customary, recreational and commercial needs. The regulations include reduced amateur bag limits (the maximum take per fisher per day). The commercial harvest of cockles from the taiäpure will be prohibited apart from the existing sanitation areas within Waitati Inlet and the Huriawa Peninsula has been closed to taking pāua, both recreationally and commercially.

It is hoped that these measures will go some way towards re-establishing a healthy fishery in our rohe moana.

Ngäi Tahu can be proud of its achievements for the 2009-2010 financial year. As we continued to navigate through the effects of a global recession, Te Rünanga asked all parts of Te Rünanga Group to give priority to Kotahitanga and to institute cost efficiencies in all areas. While our distribution budget was reduced by $1.97m, Te Rünanga made it clear that we were to retain our human capital so we could continue to deliver programmes and to be well placed to meet future opportunities. We know – as our tïpuna knew before us – that to survive testing times, people must work together. This was done by all those working across Te Rünanga Group and by our Papatipu Rünanga. Ngäi Tahu Whänui also contributed by generously foregoing programmes and grants, and opting for online publications over printed hardcopies. Our united efforts contributed to our ability to stay within the distribution budget while still delivering to our whänau. We looked to and trusted our own expertise, and focused on our core mahi. We were rewarded financially and, as an organisation, we got to know each other better and to understand how together we all contribute to the success of Ngäi Tahu’s vision. Throughout the financial year there were some highlights that deserve particular mention. The Boards of Ngäi Tahu Holdings Corporation and the respective subsidiaries and management are to be congratulated. In the face of adverse economic conditions Ngäi Tahu Holdings Corporation has delivered our best result yet with a full-year net operating surplus of $35.5m, an increase of $16.9m on the previous year, surpassing our previous best result of $31.8m in 2008. Ngäi Tahu Seafood had a record result on the back of strong köura prices and improvements in product

quality. Ngäi Tahu Tourism profited from increased tourist numbers from Asia and Australia. Returning confidence in the property market helped to lift the performance of Ngäi Tahu Property ahead of expectations and reduced overheads within the NTHC Group also bolstered returns. The Office and the Chief Executive Officer should be acknowledged for continuing the mahi requested by Te Rünanga and for maintaining programmes and reshaping the shared services function within a reduced budget. Ngäi Tahu’s rangatiratanga over its resources was also recognised with agreement being reached between Ngäi Tahu and commercial fishers on Te Waihora/Lake Ellesmere. The agreement sees a financial contribution from the fishers go towards protecting and enhancing the health of the lake. The triennial election process is all but complete and we have a number of new faces at the table. The new Representatives bring a fresh perspective to our mahi as trustees and kaitiaki, and Te Rünanga remains committed to creating an enduring legacy for future generations. The adoption of an intergenerational Investment Policy and the distribution framework were key decisions for the year. Finally, as I observed the destruction following September’s earthquakes to the Waitaha region, the immediate community response and the plans to rebuild, I am reminded of how our land endures and how we as people must find it within ourselves to adapt to changing circumstances. Ngäi Tahu has been rewarded for responding with quiet courage, confidence and determination during the economic recession. The results for the 2009-2010 financial year are a testament to this. Mä te manawa tïtï me te whakatutuki i kä tairo o Tütekoropaka, e matatü ai a Aoraki.

ANAKE GOODALL Tënä rä koutou Kurakura Käi Tahu, The 2009-2010 financial year has been one of hard work and cautious optimism. We have been able to continue to serve whänau and our Papatipu Rünanga, and deliver the annual plan under budget for the fourth successive year; largely due to the commitment of all our staff and their respective teams. Everyone has worked within tight financial constraints and we have successfully delivered the majority of our Te Rünanga mandated programmes. This past year has also seen a continued focus on achieving improved reporting and transparency. We now actively monitor whether the distributions Te Rünanga makes are “direct” (i.e. actual cash) or “indirect” (i.e. services provided by staff or other support). Direct distributions to both Papatipu Rünanga and whänau are continuing to rise in proportion to indirect distributions. Importantly, all of those distributions will continue to rise as a proportion of the total budget. This is very encouraging and continues the trend established over the past three years. We continue to increase the range of information being channelled directly to Papatipu Rünanga, our taurahere röpü groups, and whänau. I have received many calls and emails acknowledging this greater transparency, and from people engaging on the issues of the day as a result. One of the major changes of the past year has been a greater strategic and operational alignment across Te Rünanga Group. This Kotahitanga approach means we now share core services between the Office, Ngäi Tahu Holdings Corporation (NTHC) and its subsidiaries. The result has been greater transparency, rapidly improving service levels and significant financial savings. Importantly, in my view, we are now starting to unlock capacity to actively support our Papatipu Rünanga communities in these same service-related areas.

An area of Te Rünanga’s budget where a focus on costs sometimes threatens to overshadow achievements is Te Whakaariki/Strategy and Influence. This function includes programmes designed to inform and influence external decision-makers and to protect our hard-earned positions in a number of critical areas. This year these activities have bought us closer than ever to securing a resolution to our previous boundary disputes with Te Tau Ihu iwi, and I acknowledge those iwi and our own Ngäti Kurï and Ngäti Waewae for creating the environment in which this historic progress has been achieved. Negotiations on changes to the Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) led to Ngäi Tahu and other landowners of pre-1990 forests securing a significant number of carbon credits under the legislation. Subsequent negotiations secured Ngäi Tahu and other iwi further commercial opportunities to mitigate potential losses which might arise out of the implementation of the ETS. While these opportunities are yet to be realised, the potential value to Ngäi Tahu is considerable. I remain of the view that our investment in this advocacy and rights protection space is one of the most rewarding investments that Te Rünanga makes. Another significant achievement has been the adoption of the Te Rünanga Group Investment Policy Framework. This has provided direction and certainty to NTHC with respect to the expectations of Te Rünanga and, critically, provides a robust methodology for determining our sustainable distribution policy. I predict that the adoption of these disciplined and robust mechanisms will prove to be a significant contributor to the tribe’s future financial and development success. Our Mätauranga/Education budget was overspent this financial year, by approximately $118,000 for grants and scholarships and nearly $30,000 for Out of School Tuition. While the popularity of these programmes can provide a budgeting

TE RÜNANGA DISTRIBUTION AT A GLANCE headache, it is very heartening to see the increased uptake of these direct distributions in such an important area. Mö Tätou: The Ngäi Tahu Whänui Exhibition at Te Papa, closed during the year and is now on tour in our own regions. I believe that having this amazing collection of our taonga in our own regional museums and accessible to our own whänau and local communities is at least as significant as our very successful presence at Te Papa itself. We are also very close to completing our first iwi-wide set of Rünanga Representative elections. It has been a major piece of work for the Office and for Papatipu Rünanga and not without its challenges, but these processes should go from strength to strength in future years. So at year’s end the columns in the ledger balance and the books are in good order. At the same time, we have delivered on our core mission of delivering significant real benefit to our people and their communities, and more efficiently than ever before. And perhaps most importantly of all, we have reinforced the solid foundations on which the collective aspirations of future years might be built.

FROM THE CHAIR AND CHIEF EXECUTIVE After the challenges faced by the New Zealand economy during recent times, we are pleased to report significantly improved results in our 2009-2010 financial year. Ngäi Tahu Property, Ngäi Tahu Seafood and Ngäi Tahu Tourism outperformed their forecast results for the year, which pushed the full-year net operating surplus of Ngäi Tahu Holdings Corporation to $35.5m, an increase of $16.9m on the previous year. This surpassed the previous best result of $31.8m in 2008. This achievement reflects the robustness of the subsidiaries to weather the recession and the more favourable overseas market conditions helping both Ngäi Tahu Seafood and Ngäi Tahu Tourism. Strong operating cashflows of $37.9m have funded the distribution of $22.0m to Te Rünanga o Ngäi Tahu with excess cashflow being applied to the development of the Christchurch Civic Building and the completion of the Post Office Precinct in Queenstown. Returning confidence in the property market also resulted in a stronger performance from Ngäi Tahu Property with an operating EBIT (Earnings Before Interest and Tax) of $20.3m prior to revaluations. This compares to $15.7m in the previous year. Amid the ongoing global challenges facing the fishing industry, Ngäi Tahu Seafood has recorded a record result with an operating EBIT of $13.3m (FY09 $4.7m). This is largely due to the continuing strength of köura prices and volumes in the Chinese market. Despite continued volatility in the tourism market Ngäi Tahu Tourism ended the year with an operating EBIT of $5.9m (FY09 $5.3m) as a result of increased tourist numbers from Asia and Australia which helped to maintain momentum. Shotover Jet proved to be the highlight with their best performance to date. Our investment in Ryman Healthcare has again delivered strong capital growth with an increase in the value of the shares of $16.4m along with annual dividends of $2.4m.

roadmap to deliver long-term sustainable returns for the iwi. For us to continue to grow in economic strength it is important that we look to achieve higher returns from our existing portfolio as well as invest in new opportunities for growth. We will focus on moving existing unproductive assets to highest and best use in order to improve returns, generate cash and improve liquidity. Across the board our staff and senior management teams have risen to the substantial challenges presented over these turbulent times. There have been some tough calls to be made but the teams have remained committed to looking ahead to a positive future. Thank you all for your outstanding efforts and ongoing loyalty. Although there are signs of economic recovery, there is still a level of fragility in the marketplace therefore we must continue to act prudently and look for efficiencies across the board. We are poised for growth and looking closely at strategic opportunities to diversify our portfolio and grow the returns for whänau. While we move forward with confidence and a strong balance sheet, our approach to any future investments will be disciplined and cautious and in line with our investment strategy.

Over the past year we have been working closely with Te Rünanga o Ngäi Tahu to develop an Investment Policy Framework, effectively creating a

Waihōpai Rūnaka Pacific Island Young Peoples Hui This was very good too with the naming of the Pou Pou, only 25 years late. There was a good turnout of people, plus our normal hui, 260 kids in one day, two helpings and they were great. Whānau Ora Men and Ladies Hui But of course we had a white out and it was very virginal.

Kia ora whānau kei te mihi aroha kia koutou katoa. Ngā mate haere ki te waka o ngä tüpuna. Haere, haere, haere atu rä, me ngä hupe, ngä roimata aroha. Takoto mai, takoto mai, takoto mai   Well whānau it’s like the months are on a race track with V8 power, because it’s just coming round too fast, before you know it, it’s Hui-ā-Tau and then Xmas, whew I bet you are all sweating now, nah it’s all good whanaungatanga time – awesome.   Kotahi to the whānau in Ōtautahi, arohanui to you all. I cannot imagine what you went through or what you are still going through. It might sound small but we are thinking of you all, and we are so glad that there was no loss of life. We look forward to seeing you all at Hui-āTau.   We have been busy little bees down here in the south at Waihopai. The young kitchen staff we had are all gone, and now it’s back to the young 60+ year olds to carry the mantle and mana of the marae – they do it with, grumbles, moans and aroha.   Tītī Hui ( Rakiura Tītī Management Plan) Pupuritia ngā taonga a ngā tïpuna kia mau te tītī mo ake tonu atu, which means hold fast to the treasures of our ancestors and keep the tītī forever well. Kahungungu came down and the committee are wanting to take our tïtï up north – no way in hell it’s our taonga.  

On a personal note, I have been on two great iwi trips around Murihiku, one with Awarua and the other with DOC – both awesome trips. Now the shame of it all, two of our täua went shopping, got all the goods but had no money. They had to ring the marae, got me, the shining knight in black armour who paid the bill before they found their card under a car, jeez they could have lost it. Anyway whānau in these tough times we need to be helping each other not rubbishing each other, so a wink, a gesture, a hug. A laugh, a cry they all help one way or another. Remember tika, pono, aroha – if we do that right, then and only then will we succeed.   E noho rā Squirrel on the Hill See you all at Hui-ā-Tau

Change of investment October sees the change of the Whai Rawa investment from the ING Wholesale Cash Fund to Mercer Investment Trust New Zealand’s new Defensive Fund. While the cash investment has performed well for Whai Rawa, meeting the investment objective of having no losses in any quarter and achieving an average return of 5.99% p.a. before tax over the last three years, it was considered that the time was right to change the investment to achieve a better return for members while still remaining low risk. For more information regarding the new investment go to or call us.

“Our focus moving forward will be on getting more members saving and saving regularly so that they can, with the assistance from Te Rūnanga, grow their own funds to achieve greater financial independence.”

Iwi Savings Scheme Prospering Four Years On The Ngāi Tahu tribal savings scheme, Whai Rawa, celebrated a significant milestone on October 1 – four years on and going strong despite the turmoil brought about by the ongoing global economic recession.

Since the scheme was established, Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu has contributed over $8m in matched savings and distributions to members’ accounts as well as meeting all of the administration and other associated costs of the scheme.

With around 15,500 members and $15m under management, Whai Rawa is well on the way to creating the pathway to prosperity for Ngāi Tahu Whānui. The long-term savings scheme is an innovative hybrid between a superannuation scheme and a unit trust and delivers a range of benefits to members. It provides a flexible savings vehicle for retirement, home ownership and tertiary education.

To date approximately $500,000 has been withdrawn from the fund for first home buying, education and retirement. “It’s fantastic to see Whai Rawa delivering real benefits for whānau,” says Mark Solomon.

Kaiwhakahaere Mark Solomon says Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu recognised some time ago that financial and social independence, the ability to make choices in life and self-sufficiency were all key to empowering whānau – that was the starting premise for Whai Rawa.

October 2010 will also see Whai Rawa changing from its initial cash investment to a new conservative fund, the Mercer Defensive Fund. While the cash investment has performed well for Whai Rawa, the time is right, Diana Crossan says, to move to include some growth assets in the Whai Rawa investment.

“When we set up Whai Rawa it was in response to an identified need to provide a mechanism for empowering our Ngāi Tahu Whānui. At the time it was groundbreaking and held no guarantees of success but we have stayed focused on our end game and we are now seeing the positive results. I am truly delighted with the uptake to Whai Rawa over the past four years despite the ongoing impacts of the recession making it incredibly difficult for many whānau to save.

“In the early stages it was important for member confidence, to have an investment vehicle that would minimise as far as possible the risk of any losses in any quarter and this goal was achieved with no losses and an average return of 5.99% p.a. over the last three years (before tax). While the Mercer Defensive Fund is still a conservative fund it does contain some growth assets. The changeover is intended to generate a better return for members while still remaining low risk.”

“What is particularly pleasing is the fact that over 50% of all registered Ngāi Tahu under the age of 16 have been enrolled in the scheme. This means that at least half of our tamariki are already on the journey towards their first home, tertiary education or a substantial nest egg for retirement.”

At the time Whai Rawa was set up, one of its goals was to ‘develop and deliver effective financial education training to increase financial literacy’. Following on from the recently completed ANZ Ngāi Tahu Financial Knowledge Survey, the iwi has been working with ANZ, with the support of the Retirement Commission to tailor and adapt ANZ’s global MoneyMinded financial education programme to reflect iwi culture and experiences. The pilot, MoneyMinded Aotearoa Basics, Pathway, is designed to help people make informed decisions about the use and management of their money.

Whai Rawa Fund Limited Chair Diana Crossan says that while she is delighted with the progress made to date, she is cautious about complacency. “While half of the tribal population under 16 are already signed up, the other half, are not.

Kura Reo Kāi Tahu 16-21 January 2011 Arowhenua Marae, Temuka A total immersion wānanga for those at the intermediate to advanced levels of te reo. Focusing on Kāi Tahu tikanga, kōrero o nehe, whaikōrero, karanga, te reo o te kāuta, waiata and haka. Places are limited and all attendees must have high levels of te reo Māori. Cost: $150 per adult $75 per rangatahi (still at high school) $250 for a whānau of four A tamariki programme is provided only for those tamariki who can handle total immersion settings and who can converse in te reo Māori at all times.

Flash forward, ten years later, I find myself a roaming reporter at the event, witness to students more focused on the quality of reo rather than the quality of their “networking” skills. As a previous competitor this was good to see. Another welcome change was the strong presence of female speakers for the first time, (I guess my Ngāti Porou heritage would have me say that though). It was also the first time Ōtepoti has hosted Ngā Manu Kōrero, which served as a good break away from aftershock city. As per usual, Ngāi Tahu represented with their awesome manaaki in the form of kaimoana. It was enjoyed by all and very well could have turned some of the North Islanders into overstayers. Speaking of those staying over, it was inspirational to see our kaumātua sticking it out in the cold weather, day after day, in full support of the kaupapa.

Ngā Manu Kōrero was held in Dunedin 22–23 September. Tahu FM broadcasted the Ngā Manu Kōrero speeches live and recorded all speakers. Go to to listen to the amazing talent from our rangatahi. The junior English trophy went to Ivana Schinkel from Hawkes Bay, while Kaharau Keogh from Ngā Taiatea Kuru in Waikato was the standout performer in the Rawhiti Ihaka junior Māori section. Syraia Haukamo from Napier won the senior English trophy. The senior Māori Pei Te Hurinui Jones Trophy was won by Herea Winitana from Tūwharetoa who won the best prepared speech and best male speaker categories, with Puhiauarangi Black from Ngāi Tūhoe taking second with her wins as best impromptu speech and best female speaker. Congratulations to all the winners and to students who participated.

Well done Ōtepoti and those who participated and supported the Manu Kōrero 2010. Turou Hawaikii!

Ngā Whakataetae Manu Kōrero 2010 SISTA Waitoa I can remember the first time I attended the Manu Kōrero. I was a third former aka “turd”, and it was the first year of my high school life. Everyone was excited because it meant that we got time off school as well as being able to socialise with different students.


you are too slow ... “oohh, Taua, let me touch the boat!” Or perhaps it’s those Taupā tāhau/leggings that appear to have a different pattern this week? .... Oh no, Josie has just used different greenery this week and placed it in a different position on top of the case to reflect and create a new look. Beautiful, mischievous taonga, tugging at our hearts, and insisting that, we play and journey with them.

Te Hokinga Mai Murihiku Te Hokinga Mai featuring Mō Tātou, The Ngāi Tahu Whānui Exhibition from Te Papa and Mō Ngā Uri, Ngāi Tahu Contempory Art from Murihiku has been exhibiting at Southland Museum, Invercargill since 10 July. Mō Ngā Uri will close on 4 October and Mō Tātou will close on 14 November. It will then travel to Ōtākou for exhibition on 22 November.

So much to learn, so much to look at, so much to reflect on as the mauri of each piece beckons to you to come sit awhile, reflect on what your eyes behold and consider, linger, look and enjoy. It is all ours and it is all, stunning. Do we dare to dream of more exhibitions such as Mō Tātou where unknown toanga, sitting in whānau homes, can be displayed, showcased and seen by our people and others? Of course we dare to dream...

Since May 2010 representatives from Murihiku rūnaka have worked together to ensure that the exhibition is well supported by local iwi as well as the community during its time in the south. The fledgling relationship with Southland Museum has grown as Ngāi Tahu whānui make themselves available to host the exhibition on a daily basis and in doing so have become part of the museum whānau. We have been fortunate that in Murihiku, each rūnaka is able to host Mō Tātou at least once per month and this privilege provides additional opportunity for whānau to reconnect with each other, rekindle old friendships and share wonderful kai together following our Sunday handovers.

We have six weeks left of the Murihiku Exhibition before the taonga begin their hīkoi to Ōtākou. So, if you haven’t already, please come and enjoy. The third and last weekend of workshops to be held during the exhibition will be the weekend of 16 – 17 October, when a number of Murihiku weavers will grace the galleries of the Southland Museum and weave their own creativity into the whāriki of Mō Tātou. Please join us.

Mō Tātou – one cannot help but stop at the case displaying kinikini houhi/ribbonwood kilt, polish the glass and watch her dance and wave her beautiful filigree fronds at you beneath the glass ... aue! Or perhaps it is the mokihi that the mokopuna makes a beeline for and are almost under the rope barrier and climbing into it if
