A big mihi to the Puniho Pa hau-kainga for hosting the Te Runanga o Taranaki Incorporated AGM 2006.The main discussion centered around the future of Te Runanga o Taranaki Iwi Incorporated as you all know that the Taranaki Iwi Trust has been established as the Mandated Iwi Organisation under the Maori Fisheries Act 2004.After some robust discussion it was agreed that Te Runanga o Taranaki Iwi be left sitting on the shelf for the mean time and that all the business of the Runanga be transferred over to the Taranaki Iwi Trust. There was flexibility within the Taranaki Iwi Trust Deed to accommodate this transfer. As Chairperson of Te Runanga o Taranaki I would personally like to thank all the board members over the last eight years for their support and commitment in progressing the social, cultural, environmental and political aspirations for the iwi. Ahakoa me nga auheke, me nga aupiki ka whai tonu tatou I nga wawata o to tatou nei tupuna.Otira he mihi kau ana ki a koutou te whanau o Taranaki Iwi mo te wa kirihimete me te tau hou hoki.
