Nga Kupu Whakataki Foreword


Nau te rourou, Naku te rourou Ka ora ai tatou. It is with your contribution and mine, each and every one of us shall prosper! Kei konei ra e Ninihi, hei konei puhanga tohora, hei konei ra e Taiamai, ka haere ahau ki Panguru, ki Papata, ki te rakau tupatapata nui ki te hau a uru, ki nga uri o wharewhare I te rangi, kia Te Reinga, ki te Tawa rau nui, ki te ngaru nui a Pahu, ki te angaanga whawhao puku, ki te ana, ki te tahuna, e kore e pikitia e te wai, ki te angaanga titi iho I te rangi. Tu te ao, tu te po, ki te whei ao ki te ao marama, Tihei mauri ora Our community is in a prime position to actively plan for our future in a way that is accessible and inclusive of all. We also understand our communities and marae are suffering as a result of low employment, lack of suitable housing, poor health and education outcomes as well as limited means to respond to the comprehensive needs and requirements of our whanau, hapu and marae. The most significant threat we face currently is a lack of cohesion and wide spread co-ordination to help make everything we dream of achievable. We have a wealth of resources (land, capacity, time, skills, people) yet still struggle to co-ordinate our efforts to maximise all that we have for the benefit of each member of our community. This draft strategic direction might help us chart a direction forward that can make our collective dreams and aspirations a reality. As descendants of Kairewa and Waimirirangi we dedicate this document to our tupuna and loved ones who have tirelessly given their time, effort and energy to the ongoing revitalisation of Panguru and the Wider Community and hope that we can aspire to the vision and legacy they have left for us to fulfil. In the words of Poroa Kia u ki te whakapono, me aroha tetahi ki tetahi Holdfast to the truth with respect for each other. Pu ana roto Ke ana waho Ka pu te ruha Ka hao te rangatahi I runga i te mahi aroha. The Pu is at the centre The Ke is the outer shell The old elements are discarded And the new elements are created By the power of Aroha.

STRATEGIC FOCUS (Te Whainga Matua) The Aim of this Plan (Te whainga o tenei kaupapa)
This strategic plan was developed by MEA Limited in collaboration with the interim working committee for the consideration and benefit of all whanau and hapu connected to the following Marae and their surrounding communities: Ngai Tupoto Motuti Waipuna Ngatimanawa Waihou Waiparera and Matihetihe

It has been designed with the following objectives in mind: 1. To invite and include the input and considerations of all whanau who are interested in discussing and identifying the opportunities and challenges facing our wider community 2. To identify, analyse and measure the effectiveness of the organisations, structures and systems already established within the wider community 3. To look at the establishment of an overarching governing body and any other complementary organisations, structures and systems, that will be responsible/accountable for considering and actualising the needs and requirements of our wider community to enable and maximise the power of a collective approach and 4. To encourage, facilitate and actualise, optimum health and well-being for all our whanau (residing both, in and outside of the area).

Ko wai matou Who are we?

What have we been doing? (Hoki whakamuri)


The interim working committee was established to build upon the momentum that was created from the previous series of community development hui that were held during the period of August 2012 through to the hui held at Waipuna Marae July 19-20. It was asked of the committee to continue to engage and invite our whanau to become involved in this conversation regarding the future direction of our wider community and also to co-ordinate and manage a follow up hui to be held at Motuti Marae on the back of the Panguru Motuti Forestry Trust AGM during the weekend of the 6-7 and 8 September 2013. It was agreed that we would share the hui with the Panguru Motuti Forestry Trust and they were prepared to give us the first day and the morning of the second day to conduct our wider community development hui. It was also agreed that in accordance to suggestions and recommendations from the previous hui, that Motukaraka Marae, Tapuwae Incorporation and the Ngai Tupoto hapu would be invited to join our discussions at this hui. It is understood that all three groups will be represented/present. We have met every Friday since the Waipuna hui with our home-based members connecting with Mita and Kaye-Maree Dunn in Wellington via skype. Intentions and strategies have been discussed amongst the committee and our networks, during these meetings and also via e-mails and phone calls leading into each meeting regarding the following: the make-up of the agenda and programme for the Motuti hui correspondence/documentation related to the previous hui i.e. summary reports etc. correspondence/documentation for the upcoming Motuti hui i.e. funding documents, requests for expressions of interest, invite letters and contact via internet mediums (e-mails, facebook etc) and this strategic plan document.

It became apparent that there would be a need for further hui to continue these discussions and look at some form of strategic approach that outlined and included the following: reflection and consideration of the previous intentions and reports from the earlier hui a clear intention/directional pathway for the ensuing hui a projected hui timeline a projected budget and financial strategy to accommodate the hui an outreach strategy that invites, includes and provides an opportunity for all our whanau (both home-based and away) to have input and feed-in into the process/discussions an outreach strategy that encourages and fosters relationships with key stakeholders (both internal home-based organisations and structures i.e. Marae, Trusts, Committees etc. and external ones i.e TROTR, ASB, philanthropic groups and organisations, government departments and agencies and other service providers) and Finally, a way forward that works for us all.

What is needed to make this happen? (Ka pehea e whai kiko?)

Why the staged design? (Hei aha ai tenei ahau?)


We have purposely staged this process over a period of time to enable all interested parties (individuals/marae/trusts etc) adequate and appropriate time to consider and feed into the outlined process. We believe that for the outlined process to work effectively, the working committee will need time to collate and synthesise the information extracted from each hui. This will enable the working committee to provide detailed reports and flax root/whanau designed questionnaires/surveys to ensure that our whanau whanui living both, inside and outside of the area are fully informed of what has happened at each stage of the consultation process. It will also provide ample time for whanau to discuss, consider and provide input into the process effectively enabling whanau to have their say as to what direction and strategies the committee will adopt. The following is a more detailed look at what we expect to take place at each stage:

Stage 1: Consultation/Information/Invitation//Extraction Hui (Te Pou Tuatahi)


Where: When: Key Objectives: Motuti Marae September 6-7th 2013 1) To consult, inform and invite the wider community to think about who might be involved in leading us into the future and what organisations, structures and systems might be adopted to ensure not only our survival, but, the revival and regeneration of our people and the environment that we share. 2) To plant seeds of prosperity for us all to grow. 3) To gain permission/support to continue as an official working committee and to look at how we might finance and support future hui.

This hui is designed to consult, invite, inform and engage as many individuals, whanau, groups, and organisations of the wider community and afar as possible, to discuss the key objectives mentioned above. The primary focus of this hui will be to initiate discussions surrounding a possible wider community representative body/group and structure that will provide an opportunity for individuals, whanau, marae, hapu, social groups and organisations to express, explore and realise our different dreams and aspirations whilst maximising the potential of our collective voice. We will also explore some potential projects/initiatives that have been identified at previous hui and will provide an opportunity for other suggestions to be put forward for wider whanau consideration. We are also intending to create a communication strategy that will enable our wider whanau the opportunity to provide their input and considerations via internet mediums i.e. e-mail, facebook etc. At this stage we are still running as an interim working committee. We would be looking at becoming the official working party for the wider community to enable a more intentional

These hui will provide the working committee the opportunity to make sense of the information extracted from the Motuti hui.

We will also use this time to establish an outreach strategy for communications, rangatahi engagement and relationship building with external investors.

This hui is designed to provide a consultative process that identifies, analyses and measures the effects of our historical ventures, and initiatives, the decision making processes surrounding them and the results regarding their survival/success or their extinction/demise. It will also present an opportunity for whanau to put forward their ideas on ideal qualities of the individuals to be charged with the responsibility of community leadership as well as engage in a nomination process to put forward candidates for positional appointments on the newly formed Structure/Organisation. Finally it will aim to further explore potential ideas/projects/initiatives that whanau believe will contribute to the ultimate health and well-being of our whanau whanui and our wider community.
