Account Verification for Grant Payments
Updated 19 January 2024 at 11.25



As you may be aware, the Ngāti Mākino Grants for 2024 are now live. 


Any payments that are made directly to an iwi member's bank account cannot be made without “Account Verification(a deposit slip, bank statement or a screenshot of your name and account number). This is due to the new Anti Money Laundering rules and the increasing phishing schemes that have been happening, our creditors team have had to update their payment process to provide additional checks of bank account information to ensure payments are going to legitimate people.


You can provide us your account verification by emailing admin@ngatimakino.co.nz or pop in to see us at our office 1256 Arawa Street, Rotorua. 


Kaumatua Grants

For those Kaumatua who provided their account verification last year your grant applications will automatically roll over.


Please call us at the office if you have any questions 07 343 6588.

Tena ra koutou e ngā uri o Ngāti Mākino,


He mihi tēnei ki a koutou katoa i whakakanohi i ou koutou, otira i ou tātou whānau ki tō tātou Rā Hauora katahi ano ka hori. Na to koutou taenga mai i ea ai te kaupapa.


Kai ngā ringa raupā i tae mai hei tautoko i te kaupapa, Poutiri Trust, Triton Hearing, Tino Kai, Krissie, Karen, Sonia kōrua tahi ko Geoff otirā kai to tātou tuahine a Te Oriwa. Katahi te rā te kounga o ā koutou nā mahi, o ā koutou nā kōrero. He whakapiki wairua, he koanga ngākau tā te marea i te otinga atu. E kore te puna o aroha, o mihi e maroke i te rā.


Kai ngā ringawera o te rā, Joseph koutou ko tō kāhui, kaore e kore i puta a pito, i hākoakoa katoa a ngākau na te reka o ngā kai i whakaritea e koutou. Me mihi ki a koutou kā tika me te mōhio, ahakoa ki tēhea marae tae atu koe, ko te kounga, te kore kounga rānei o ngā kai ka noho mātāmua ki te hirikapo, ā, kei taumata ano ēra o ngā kai e hoa mā.

Hei whakatepe i ēnei o ngā mihi, ka tīkina ake au i tērā o ngā kōrero “Ki te tika a muri, ka tika hoki a mua”. No reira ki a koutou e te whānau o te marae o Ōtamarākau me te kāhui o Ngāti Mākino Iwi Authority. Kia mōhio mai koutou, kaore tēnei rā i eke na te mahi a te taki tahi, engari na ngā mahi a te taki tini. Ko koutou i ūpoko pakarū, ko koutou te take i eke ai tēnei Rā Hauora ki tōna taumata.

E te Pāpā e Muriwai....

Updated on 9th January 2023 at 11.45am


Kotahi tau ki muri ka riro tō tātou pou whakaruruhau a Muriwai Ihakara ki te au kume o taeninihi, ki te tōnga o te marino.


Nei rā mātou e whakamānawa ana i to tātou tangata a Pāpā Muriwai.  E rere tonu ana te aroha ki tōna makau a Venus me a rāua tamariki.  


E te Pāpā, e ngana tonu ana mātou ki te whakatinana i ōu whakakitenga mō tō iwi ā haere ake nei te wā. 


E te pāpā e Muriwai, takoto mai ra koe i te rangatiratanga o te mate.

E Ngāti Mākino whānui, tahuri mai rā, titiro iho! Kua riwhatia ngā mahi a Te Pae o Kahukura e te rangapū tuatahi. E ngahuru mā rua ngā wiki i whāia ai e ngā tauwira kia puta ai rātau hai tūtirahōkai, hai niwha o Te Pae o Kahukura. Ko Te Pae o Kahukura he āpure mō te hunga mahira ki te ako i te reo Māori, otirā i te reo o Ngāti Mākino. Ko te awhero o Ngāti Mākino, kia nui ake te tokomaha o ngā uri a Ngāti Makino e kōrero ana i te reo Māori, kia kounga te reo o ngā uri, kia mōhio ai ngā uri ki te reo o Ngāti Makino, kia mārama hoki ngā uri ki ngā tikanga me ngā kawa o Ngati Makino.

Hai tēnei rā ono te 10 o ngā rā o Tihema ka whakanuia, ka whakamānawatia ngā tūtirahōkai me ngā niwha nō te rangapū tuatahi e Ngāti Makino.

Nā reira! E kōtou e waku manu kahukura, e tū! Kia whakatopa kaihautia te rangi!

As a reminder people in all New Zealand coastal areas should:

Thank you again to everyone who evacuated this morning and for your cooperation in helping keep everyone safe.

Tsunami WARNING

 Updated on 5 March at 12.04pm


Just a reminder that coastal areas WEST OF MATATA should expect strong and unusual currents and unpredictable surges near the shore. This means a threat to beach, harbour, estuary and small boat activities. People MUST stay out of the water (sea, rivers and estuaries). STAY OFF beaches and shore areas. There's a danger to swimmers, surfers, people fishing, small boats and anyone in or near the water close to shore.

 

If you have whānau that have been asked to evacuate following this morning’s magnitude 8.1 earthquake, please remain evacuated until the warning has been lifted. In the Bay of Plenty this covers those in low lying areas EAST of Matatā – including Whakatāne and Ōpōtiki.
