E hari e koa ana mātau kua tau mai ēnei pūkenga hai whakaringa hai whakawaewae i a mātau mahi whakarauora ia Waitahanui awa Waitahanui whenua.

WORKDAYS workdays 2020: March to November

General volunteer workdays will be held on the 4th Sunday of each second month, running from March 2020 to November 2020.

A similar occasion will be held towards the end of the year for staff of Kokako Coffee in Auckland. This company has been a committed sponsor for several years.

A small team of five people have undertaken to do a monthly check of the 63 DOC 200 traps in Otari Block. Three people can comfortably complete the round during a morning. The team members will liaise each month to find a date suitable to those available.

Wānanga & 10 Year Celebration - Deed of Settlement

Updated on 9 March at 1.34pm


We would like to extend our gratitude to those that were in attendance at the Wānanga last week Saturday 6 March at Ōtamarākau Marae. The feedback and the contribution (both physically and digitally through the Survey) to the Ngāti Mākino Strategic Plan now enables and highlights where we will focus our efforts over the next three years.


We would like to thank Arapeta Tahana for facilitating our wānanga session and Margaret Williams for recording the great korero that was being shared. A reminder that if you were unable to attend the wānanga last week that the survey is still available for completion until Friday 12 March 5.00pm.


Our next scheduled event is our 10 Year Celebration of the Deed of Settlement that was signed with the Crown. This will be held at Ōtamarākau Marae on 10 April 2021. Sometimes we need to look back so we know where we came from and who lead us to here and now. Only then can we know how far we have come and how much further we need to go. Then...we can truly honor those who lead us... A registration form is now available. See below for all relevant links.

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

  1. Listen to the radio and/or TV for updates, or check www.civildefence.govt.nz

  2. Listen to local Civil Defence authorities and follow any instructions regarding evacuation of your area

  3. Stay out of the water (sea, rivers and estuaries, this includes boats)

  5. Do not go sightseeing

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.

Keep an eye on www.civildefence.govt.nz for the latest information.

We, Ngāti Mākino Iwi Authority are developing our new strategic plan and would like feedback from our Registered Iwi Members (18 years and older) to help shape and inform the Plan.

*The survey will be available until 13 March 2021.

*You can only submit one response per person.
