Ngāti Tama Chair Now is a time to engage with our whānau, kanohi ki te kanohi, so the Board can understand what our whānau future priorities are. I encourage whānau to attend one of the Whānau Engagement Hui to help inform our strategic planning and our goals for the future. Whats most important to you and your whānau? That’s the question that will be asked in October when Board Trustees and Trust staff visit Auckland, New Plymouth, Wellington, Christchurch and Nelson. We want to kōrero, kanohi ki te kanohi to gather your ideas and thoughts on your whānau priorities and whats important to you. The Ngāti Tama ki Te Tauihu Strategic plan 2015 is due to expire in 2020 and a new plan needs to be created to guide our Board, Trust and Asset Holding Company for future decision making. It is important to have input from whānau who reside inside and outside of Te Tauihu so that our future goals represent our iwi members priorities. I encourage whānau who can, to attend one of the five hui to help inform future planning so we can steer our waka in the right direction. We welcome a number of people to the Ngāti Tama team, Johanna Katene Burge and Kingi Gilbert are our new Associate Trustees, and Deryk Mason, our mandated Ngāti Tama Representative for the Brook Waimārama Sanctuary Trust. We also welcome Christina Harris Pakeho and Te Ahu Rei to our operational team. Christina has taken on the role as Communications and Funding Manager and Te Ahu as the Cultural Manager. Bringing on capable and experienced people to these roles is integral to ensure we have the capacity to engage with our whānau and deliver meaningful mahi. Connectivity and engagement are some of the themes of this Te Puna Pānui, as we continue to grow in capacity, so too does our ability to connect with our whānau who reside outside of Te Tauihu. Sharing opportunities and events that can encourage whānau home, such as Te Ipukarea, which will be held in December in Motueka, our AGM in April and various other wānanga and shows. These are some of the features in this issue. I hope you enjoy the updates and have an opportunity to benefit from one of the upcoming events. Nāku iti nei nā, Anthony (Butch) Little Ngāti Tama ki Te Waipounamu Trust Chairperson

Ngāti Tama in Te Tauihu Kaumatua Day at Whakatū Marae Earlier this year Ngāti Tama ki Te Waipounamu Trust hosted a Kaumātua Day at Whakatū Marae. Kaumātua from across Te Tauihu came together to attend a one-day hui to talk about health and discuss what’s important for them to be in a safe environment. The day provided health awareness in a holistic and mana enhancing way to create a comfortable space for our Kaumātua while ensuring tikanga and kawa were maintained. The hui covered Bowel Screening presented by Tui Lister, advance care planning by Carla Arkless, both from Nelson Marlborough DHB. As part of the day taonga were given to our Kaumātua, including a Ngāti Tama Waiata book and CD for spiritual and cultural health. They also received rākau with weka feathers for physical health and exercise. It was a beautiful day with some great kōrero.
Tūpuna Potraits, Nelson Provincial Museum In August, the Nelson Provincial Museum invited iwi to view a number of unnamed portraits of tūpuna and whānau from Te Tauihu. This was an effort to identify the people in the images. These photos from the Nelson Museum glass plate photography collection had been categorised as ‘Māori’ or ‘unknown’. Two representatives from Ngāti Tama attended and were able to successfully identify several portraits. Such as this image on the left of Luke and Ngāwati Mitchell (nee Mōrehu).

Trustee Spotlight: Nikita Marie Day Ko Parapara te maunga Ko te pariwhakaoho te awa Ko Tokomaru te waka Ko Ngāti Tama te iwi Ko Huriawa te taniwha Ko Waikoropupū te puna Ko Onetahua te Marae Ko Te Ao Mārama te whare Nō Whakatū ahau Kei Ōtautahi ahau e noho ana Ko Nikita Day tōku ingoa Tēnā koutou katoa; As someone who spent many years disconnected from my Ngāti Tama side, it was one of the most powerful experiences of my life to be welcomed with open arms. It was for this reason that I wanted to be involved with Ngāti Tama to connect further with my whānau. I also decided to become a trustee to utilise my education to advance Ngāti Tama ki Te Tauihu. It is an absolute privilege and joy to be able to work with such passionate people for our whānau. Outside of Ngāti Tama I work as a graduate lawyer at Greenwood Roche in Ōtautahi specialising in commercial property law with a sub focus on forestry. I have found the skills I have learnt both during my studies and my mahi to be useful around the table. I am very passionate about using the law as a vehicle for change and the advancement of Te Ao Māori. In recent months I have written submissions on behalf of Ngāti Tama ki te Waipounamu on the Kāinga ora - Homes and Communities Bill, the Climate Change Response (Zero Carbon) Amendment Bill and the proposed changes to the Overseas Investment Act 2005. I am also passionate about developing the wellbeing of Ngāti Tama ki Te Tauihu in all aspects including mental and physical health, community/ sense of belonging, language, education and career aspirations and financial security. This is something I believe the board continues to work toward.
