Maanaki ki te Tangata
This is the mana by which Ngāti Kahungunu was reknown and will continue to be as we strive forward as kaitiaki of our taonga;
waimāori, mahinga kai, whenua, ngāhere, marae and whānau
He aha te mea nui o te ao? He tangata, he tangata, he tangata.
In times past there were many rangatira leading the way through good fortune and adversity, weaving the fabric of Heretaunga hapū into a vibrant whariki;
Rangatira at every twist and turn,every awa and pathway into the bountiful ture paewhenua that is the Heretaunga rohe.
Today there is a new story that encompasses our culture, environment, societal needs, and our economic acumen to add to the rich whakapapa we inherited.
This is a place to celebrate our rangatira, those that led and are leading from the front and those that upheld the rear and continue to do so.
