Message from the Chairman Welcome to Te Puna Pānui December 2020. As we draw closer to the end of the work year, school year and ‘year of Covid’, I hope our whānau are looking forward to Christmas and the festive season. It is a busy time for us and like many of you, we are keen to close the lid on 2020 and start fresh in 2021. 2020 has thrown us many challenges, but it has shown above all to keep whānau wellbeing as the number one priority. This year we have all adapted through many changes and we thank whānau for baring with us through those changes. We understand that whānau may still be struggling as we continue to feel the effects of lockdowns, border restrictions, unstable work, and reduced income. We want to support you our whānau as much as we can. Our 2020 AGM was postponed to October due to lockdown and although some restrictions were still in place, we were able to gather a quorum and livestream the proceedings through our online Ngāti Tama app. We received positive feedback from many of you, whānau were able to make comments and put questions to the Trustees. We will continue to find ways such as livestreaming so that whānau can participate in Tama kaupapa. We look forward to hosting our next AGM and whānau wānanga in Whakatū, these dates are set for Friday 23rd of April to Monday 26th of April - save these dates whānau. The National Iwi Chairs Forum meet every 4 month and recently we gathered in Ngāmotu, New Plymouth. Hosted by our Taranaki whanaunga, on the 5th and 6th of November, a date of huge significance as the commemoration of the 1881 invasion

of Parihaka, the mamae of this hara was acknowledged throughout the hui. Te Whata, www.tewhata.io was launched at The National Iwi Chairs Forum and is an innovative data platform. Te Whata currently has Census, Te Kupenga data and Ministry of Education data available to access on an Iwi-by-Iwi basis and also has the ability for individual iwi to administer and customise to suit their purposes. This site was borne out of the bungled 2013 Census and the significant undercount of the Māori population. Ngāti Tama also responded to the poor 2013 census data by delivering our own Iwi Census earlier this year. We had 28% of members participate, which is a relatively high iwi participation rate and a great benchmark milestone for us. Ngāti Tama will continue to deliver the census regularly as the data is invaluable to the Trust’s strategic planning and development.

The 2020 Tama Census supported the development of the Tama 2050 Strategy Our new Ngāti Tama strategy is presented further along in this pānui. Post-covid Ngāti Tama is financially in a strong position. Tama Asset Holding Company decided to maintain higher levels of cash and now they are ready for good direct investments that might come up because of covid.

We understand that whānau may still be struggling as we continue to feel the effects. We want to support you, our whānau as much as we can. Now in recovery, we are finding ways to relieve pressure from families in addition to the relief grants, kai packs, and vouchers. Earlier this year Ngāti Tama secured funding from RUIA to supply back to school packs to our tamariki, tamariki nohinohi and rangatahi. Packed with stationery, books and Ngāti Tama merchandise, we can support our kids to be prepared for the 2021 school year. More details about ordering a pack is inside this pānui. In closing, I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and New Year, stay safe on the roads and if you are travelling, look after one another. To our whānau who live outside of the rohe, if you have no other plans I invite you to consider coming to Te Tauihu, to your place, to explore and learn, come for the holidays, the summer or come to our AGM in April – nau mai hoki mai ki te ūkaipō. Nō reira, tēnā tatou e te whānau o Ngāti Tama ki Te Tauihu. _________________

Message from the General Manager What a year 2020 has been! Although half of this years planned mahi was diverted to Covid response and recovery efforts I am proud of the work that we have been able to achieve this year. Our business case work across the operations team was impacted by the lockdown but we made good progress to achieve what we had set out to do in the last 12 months. Te Kotahi o Te Tauihu is a group made up of all eight Te Tauihu iwi GM/CEs, born during lockdown to progress the collective priorities of iwi in Te Tauihu. We meet regularly to discuss the interests and needs of Māori whānau and post-covid the collective priorities are kai, housing and work/training. This year the Ngāti Tama operations were focused on connecting with our

members; keeping members informed, This will put the team in a stronger understanding who, where and what your position to continue to deliver results needs are. for the Tama Group and to whānau.

In this ‘new normal’ we are making the best use of the tools available to us to connect with members and bring whānau together.

Over the next five years we will be focusing our efforts on the Ngāti Tama Strategic Plan priority areas; 1. 2.

Our team in the office continues to grow as 3. we look to recruit a Communications Support person, and with support from Te Puni Kōkiri 4. we are building capabilities of our current 5. staff through professional development.

Stimulate learners of Te Reo, tikanga and whakapapa Develop opportunities to live and work in Te Tauihu Explore options to support whānau wellbeing and independence Enhance our significant lands and waterways Fit-for-purpose systems and operations.

We are looking to consolidate our work in 2021 and are so excited for what the new year will bring! Kia hāneanea te noho i te wā o te Kirihimete, ngā mihi matakuikui ki a tātou katoa mo te Tau Hou!

Te Pouwhenua ki te Kura o Ngā Tīmoti ‘Tērā a Matariki ka rewa i te pae’ – behold Matariki on the horizon, a sign of new beginnings Ngāti Tama Trustee’s, staff & whānau

Ngatimoti School students check out their new pouwhenua

The basic indicative design of the pouwhenua at Ngā Tīmoti School is a simple natural body Taking the form of a stylised Kaitaka with sparsely placed kōwhaiwhai patterns. These patterns reflect aspects of kaitiakitanga of the natural environment that the children and school community are involved with. The main surface pattern on the ūpoko and kaitaka border is the ‘ritorito’ pattern from the Taranaki carving tradition representing the flax family. This border pattern is based on the work of John H. Menzies, an ancestor of the carver and represents ‘ngā tuna o te awa o Motueka’. At the base is the face of a tamaiti peering out from beneath the protective cloak representing the children at the school.

History There are several versions as to how the name of Ngā Tīmoti came about. One popular version follows the story of a man by the name of Tīmoti (Timothy) an avid eeler in the local area who carved, ‘Nā Tīmoti’ (belonging to Tīmoti), into a tree to mark his fishing spot. It appears that over the years, the name has gone through some changes and is now more commonly spelt as one word ‘Ngātīmoti’ which may be interpreted as ‘Ngā Tīmoti (the descendants of Tīmoti).

On Friday 11th December, Ngāti Tama unveiled and blessed Ngā Tīmoti Pouwhenua, a pou at Ngā Tīmoti School in Motueka to mark the connection Ngāti Tama has with the school and the area. The pouwhenua was commissioned by the Trust and carved by Ōtūwhero resident, Tim Wraight as part of connecting with schools that were returned to Ngāti Tama through our 2014 Treaty Settlement. The top is the head of a Ngāti Tama Tupuna carved in the same way as the head at the top of a tokotoko with the conical peak representing Taranaki mounga. This has the face looking forward to the future and back to remember the past.

The eye of the pou is the Mānuka beetle (Pyronota festiva) which is prevalent in the area and represents the insect world.

The spiral pattern on the kaitaka refers to the birds around Ngā Tīmoti, and their flight paths above and across the valley, especially the kereru which at certain times of the year makes great swooping dives in the air.

Ngāti Tama acknowledges the carver Tim Wraight (resident at Ōtūwhero) for his creative interpretation and in particular for incorporating specific aspects pertaining to Ngāti Tama and their Taranaki origins and the local Ngā Tīmoti area. Tēnā rā koe kei te rangatira e Tim. Page 7 | TE PUNA


Brightwater School win at Te Huinga Whetū Ngāti Tama present taonga to first ever winners of the ‘best whakangahau' category from Te Huinga Whetū Festival 2020. Ngāti Tama ki Te Waipounamu Trust presented the trophy to the first ever winners of the Best Whakangahau group from Huinga Whetū Festival 2020. The new category – best whakangahau – is an encouragement to students to rise, persevere and never give up and is being recognised with a taonga commissioned by Ngāti Tama ki Te Waipounamu Trust. Brightwater School are the inaugural winners of the kapa haka category. The taonga, created by master artist

The taonga was named Poutama to recognise the continual levels of learning

Brian Flintoff, is a pūmoana or pītātara made from a triton shell, wood, and feathers to represent the children of both Tāne and Tangaroa. The name of the taonga is “Poutama”, and is to recognise the continual levels of learning, growth, and achievement in kapahaka. In their first ever performance at the competition, Brightwater School won the non-aggregate category of best whakangahau group and is to encourage

new groups to think about participating in the competitive section. Brightwater school were unable to receive the taonga at the prizegiving on the day and Waimea College accepted the taonga on the school’s behalf. Brightwater School students, teachers, Te Tauihu Cultural Council and Ngāti Kōata welcomed Ngāti Tama to the school for the official presentation of the taonga to students. The next Huinga Whetū Festival is set for 2021.

Mereana Anderson Ebb and flow is a collection of projects that document and explore different aspects of personal wellbeing. Mereana has unpacked notions of wellbeing and created a website exhibition to display alongside her colleagues, as a collective. Ebb and Flow, encompasses differing states of mental wellbeing. Ebb and Flow; the push and pull of water, promotes a metaphor for unpacking psychological mind states. This idea links the ocean to the everchanging high and low tides of experience. The journey of drug addiction and overcoming the compulsion is a narrative that is familiar to many New Zealanders. “Surfacing” examines the impact of illicit drugs on an individual and

their Whānau. The documentary video represents a raw story which gives a voice to the people with first-hand experience. The story embodies a journey of recognition, submission and cooperation that is to conquer all the odds.

The year of COVID A Ngāti Tama Reponse

Mr & Mrs. Joseph Nicole Death (Mason)

In March of this year when the country moved into Alert level 4, Ngāti Tama and its Trustees prioritised the health and wellbeing of whānau and team members. Our Covid-19 response plan saw the operational team check in on 100% of members that we had contact information for. We provided 417 relief grants to whānau in New Zealand and abroad and distributed 333 kai packs or kai vouchers to Ngāti Tama whānau throughout Aotearoa. Some whānau suffered loss of income and work, some felt isolated and disconnected in lockdown, some lost loved ones during that time, and our thoughts are with them. Ngāti Tama’s response was swift and far reaching. Ensuring that Ngāti Tama whānau feel supported and not alone during the lockdown was our paramount concern. Ngāti Tama will continue to administer Covid-19 relief for our whānau as the impacts continue to be felt. We are also pleased that the collective work of the eight Te Tauihu iwi has come into sharper focus as a result of Covid-19. A recovery plan to focus on the kai, housing and work needs of Te Tauihu whānau has been initiated by the GMs of Te Tauihu iwi and it is heartening to see this work progress and develop.

Staff Wānanga to Te Āwhina Marae On the 18th and 19th of November, Ngāti Tama staff attended a 2-day staff wānanga hosted at Te Āwhina Marae in Motueka. Regular wānanga with staff support professional development and build a deeper understanding of Ngāti Tama cultural spaces and hītori. Staff were treated to beautiful kōrero about the whare, the pou and tukutuku panels that adorn the inside, and the pou that stand in the front of the whare. Staff were taken around the rohe to visit our schools returned to Ngāti Tama as part of settlement, including Ngatimoti, Tasman School and Mahana School where Pouwhenua will be erected. The first Ngāti Tama Pouwhenua was erected at Motupipi School in Takaka in December of 2019. Staff also visited the Te Puna o Riuwaka, it is where the northern branch of the Riuwaka River rises from caverns deep below the Takaka Hill. The water, as pure as Pupū Springs, runs through marble rocks and passages down to the foot of the hill to spring out into a deep, crystalclear pool. The river tumbles on down the hill through a series of pools, including the stunning Crystal Pool.

Paul Marlow at Te Āwhina Marae Te Puna o Riuwaka is regarded as a supernatural place where some would come to cleanse and heal their bodies and sustain their spirits. Staff also learned Te Āwhina Marae is launching their marae book on Saturday 9th of January. The book, written by Pohe Stephens, explores the history of the pā and brings to paper the kōrero of the whare and pou.

In 2017, the Minister for the Environment accepted the WCO application and referred to a special tribunal for consideration. In March 2020, the Special Tribunal issued its report and recommendations to the Minister. Other parties were able to make submissions to the report. On 8 May 2020, the Environment Protection Agency (EPA) notified us that 10 parties had lodged further proceedings with the Environment Court in respect to the WCO application. In Sep 2020, all parties including Ngāti Tama attended a mediation hui in Takaka. A further mediation hui is scheduled for Feb 2021. If you would like to know more about the WCO, you can go to the EPS website here: https://www.epa.govt.nz/publicconsultations/decided/te-waikoropupu-springs/
