Iwi were invited to attend the hearings and briefings and a timetable were distributed to iwi members so that their presence could be coordinated. Tāngata Whenua Council values our partnership with iwi and aims to embed tāngata whenua values and aspirations into the sustainable management of our district. As kaitiaki, tāngata whenua management of natural resources is bound to kaitiakitanga, the practice of environmental management centered around the traditional Māori world view. For tāngata whenua, their role as kaitiaki provides motivation for working in partnership with council. Council aims to grow ability for staff to recognise and provide for the Māori world view inside our programmes of work. Internal organisational development is required to develop and maintain relationships with iwi thus ensuring that council meets our obligations under the RMA, LGA and in relation to the Treaty of Waitangi. Increasingly we see the participation of te reo within council. There are good skills within iwi that would benefit us further however the capacity of iwi to participate within council is spread thin due to time and work commitments. Council is mindful of this and will work towards finding ways to enable Māori to participate more fully as intended. A greater emphasis on this activity indicates council s readiness to build iwi capacity to participate more fully in the governance of our community. We are committed to providing resources that build capacity and service provision focused on Tāngata Whenua priorities. Treaty settlements are an opportunity to develop a programme with tāngata whenua todetermine the way in which council and iwi will work in a post treaty environment. As iwi settle historic grievances through the Treaty settlement process, they are poised to become powerful leaders in the economic future of the whānau, hapū and iwi groups on this coast. Treaty settlements add to the asset base supporting an increase in the number of Māori employers and self-employed individuals. As we move towards a post settlement era, a review of the resource internally will prepare the organisation for this time. Three year focus 2015 review of representation arrangements.

When ART sought a memorandum of understanding with Kāpiti Coast District Council in the 1990's, they established Te Whakaminenga o Kāpiti in The Kāpiti Coast District Council and Iwi of this district have looked after their relationship for more than 20 years, making their collaboration unique in terms of Treaty partnership arrangements in New Zealand. From the beginning Te Whakaminenga o Kāpiti has focused on harmonising different cultural attitudes to resources and solve local issues according to national legislation. Primarily involved with issues to do with resource management, it has also worked to ensure that the Māori World view is better represented and understood in the broader community. meetings august, 6 october, 17 november Council celebrates the critical role of tāngata whenua across and within community planning, development and implementation for Whatungarongaro te tāngata toitū te whenua As man disappears from sight, the land remains Adaptation offers the greatest opportunity for tāngata whenua. This whakatauki provides insight into the way in which tāngata whenua see their role. As kaitiaki, there is an inherent intergenerational obligation which reminds us that our role is to continue to plan for the health and wellbeing of our future generations, our whakapapa. Participation is holistic, planning will incorporate cultural, social, economic, environmental, political values and dimensions. Rongoā Māori uses a range of traditional methods to deal with illness. Plants such as kawakawa, harakeke (flax), kōwhai and mānuka were all important for healing, and so was a belief in the spiritual causes of illness. The water supply project is a good example of the strong partnership we have with iwi. An established partnership approach with iwi from the outset contributed to the smooth progression of the project towards a resilient sustainable resource. f02212b1d6/kcdc_n518008_13 governance_and_tangata_whenua_-_ governance_and_tangata_whenua_includes_cdem_-_.pdf Click on PDP Update Newsletter Review/xxx/volume-1sev-plan/ Te Whakaminenga o Kāpiti 15/04/165 IWI UPDATES Te Āti Awa Waiora project research project focusing on Mahinga Kai within rivers has commenced Governance work with the M2PP Naming of a new lane near Leinster Avenue as Rongomau Lane was very gratifying Iwi had been involved in a number of resource consents The schedule Consents for GWRC s freshwater plan had been finished GWRC flood plain walkover had occurred and as it had come just after the recent period of heavy rain it was easier to observe water level tracks A meeting had been held with GWRC regarding the blessing and naming of the cycleway in Queen Elizabeth Park Ngāti Toa Rangatira Rangatahi hui held, fourth one of the year including a Kāpiti Island visit New marine cultural indicators project on the Porirua Harbour with DOC Matariki meeting at Te Papa An event on Friday morning to commemorate Gallipoli - dawn ceremony at Te Papa iwi and others attending Ngā Hapū o Ōtaki Cultural Impact Assessment (CIA) work had recently been undertaken in respect of a non-notified resource consent for the pumping of stormwater from Moana Street to Ōtaki Beach. This had included a site visit. CIAs were only required for notified resource consents, but there were some non-notified ones that required CIAs and this was an important issue for further discussion by ART and Te Whakaminenga o Kāpiti together with Council officers 2 3 matariki celebrated with artists Mahara Gallery invited 23 Te Ãtiawa artists to celebrate Matariki with an exhibition entitled He Toi Reikorangi. A pōwhiri on Friday 12 June opened the exhibition to reveal a refreshing mix of contemporary and traditional works by these outstanding artists who share whakapapa.

This was a collaboration with Mahara Gallery, as part of Pō Whakaatu Toi and other galleries in the Wellington Region for Matariki. Guest performing artist Matiu Te Huki (pictured below left) led young artists and their whānau onto the marae for the pōwhiri for Tiaho Mai let the light shine art exhibition, in the whare nui. It was a proud moment for all. The first of our Kāpiti Coast District Libraries Thursday Lunchtime Sessions opened with a kapa haka performance by the children of Te Korowai Whakamana. Ōtaki Library was buzzing, with around 80 kids and 60 adults. It was a great afternoon and start to our Matariki Celebrations. Ka mau te wehi tamariki mā! Shaianne Tarrant with her exhibit Shining Moon, colour pencils Tiaho Mai Exhibition, Whakarongotai TU MEKE kaumatua kapahaka delighted crowds at both Paraparaumu Library and Mahara Gallery, as part of the Matariki lunchtime programme. The Tele Jam Musicians played old favourites like Prince Tui Teka through to Santana & B52 s and was enjoyed by a wide demographic of our community, at Ōtaki Library. The atmosphere was wonderful, very much in the spirit of Matariki and a great addition to our season's celebration. The Tele Jam night evolved out of a desire by several local musicians to network play, create and share music with their peers. The owner of the Telegraph kindly offered his premises free of charge and the monthly event began. From the small core group, the numbers of musicians who attend has grown dramatically and the event has become a huge success. Musicians travel regularly from Porirua, Palmerston North and Wanganui to participate and many a musician have been recruited from the Jam night to gig regularly. Ring Graham on Robin Hepi and JoAnna Mere from Mahara Gallery check on manuhiri taking advantage of the shuttle bus to Pataka in Porirua. Kua Ranea Aperahama sounds inspire dance. 6 7 ta moko ceremony performed matariki is a time to remember Ngāti Toa held a number of workshops at Te Papa during residency, for their Matariki celebrations. The public was invited to learn about the astronomy of Matariki (Pleiades star cluster) from a customary Māori perspective, the preparation and application of rongoā, (customary Māori medicine) or enjoy a mirimiri massage, while tamariki were invited to create their own mara (mini garden) to take home. Many took advantage of the morning bus tour to take in the west coast and explore the dramatic history of Ngāti Toa Rangatira on the very ground where it unfolded. The tour concluded with lunch at Takapūwahia Marae. In the afternoon, a tā moko ceremony was performed. Māori tā moko has been practiced for over a thousand years, and has not only withstood time but also colonization by Europeans. It is a reflection of whakapapa and history. It symbolises Māori identity and marks in time ones journey in life. Waiku Solomon was attended by her namesake Waikuharu, (Auntie Girlie), Whaea Rihia, her nieces and nephew. The tā moko artist was Taryn Beri. Surrounded by whānau, Waikuharu prepares herself mentally and spiritually for tā moko to begin. Whaia Rihia massaged her feet throughout and joined with the incantations urging her on, by Te Waari Carkeek and nephew, Hohepa Potini. Jerome Kavanagh played a variety of taonga puoro, like this koauau. Such haunting sounds of the past floating in the present. It was a very moving ceremony. HE KURA TE TÃNGATA people are precious To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Māori Contingent landing at Gallipoli, kaumātua groups from around the country performed tribal waiata-a-ringa and haka from the First World War era at Te Papa on 4 July. Included were memorable classics such as Te Ope Tuatahi by Sir Āpirana Ngata and E Pari Rā by Paraire Tōmoana. The New Zealand Post Kaumātua Kapa Haka festival was part of Te Papa s Matariki celebrations. Te Puru o Ngāti Whātua Kaumātua He Kura te Tāngata Pākeke -Ōtaki ki te Whanganui-a-Tara (bottom right) concluded with their moving performance and karakia of remembrance to close the day. MC Mabel Wharekawa Burt, holds the taonga tuku iho which remained on stage upon a korowai for the weekend. The taiaha was property of Mr Oranga Witehira. It had been laid on the grave of his whānau by an unknown soldier. Kia Maumaharatia lest we forget Te Roopu Pākeke o Murihiku Her work complete, tā moko artist Taryn Beri looks on as Waikuharu greets her name sake Waikuharu (Aunty Girlie), who had travelled some distance to tautoko her niece throughout the ceremony. She is probably the fifth in the line to carry our tupuna name. Waikuharu the name, comes from our family. That is my mother's connection to Aunty Girlie who is actually my cousin. Mum and her mother (Aputa) were the same generation. The name Waikuharu comes from the Raukawa side, Te Waari explained. 8 9 larger-than-life tribute opens maramataka commemoration As a veteran of Gallipoli, Te Waari Carkeek's grandfather has always been a larger-thanlife figure for the family. Now he truly is, in Te Papa's newest exhibition. The last time Te Waari, who is Te Papa kaumātua, met grandfather Rikihana Carkeek, he was just three years old. But he thinks Weta Workshop, which collaborated on the $8 million showcase, has captured his likeness well in the large-scale model. The display uses the experiences of real New Zealanders who served, fought and died to capture the human face of what became known as the Great War. It's quite a powerful exhibition... I don't think there's anything like this in the world, Te Waari said. Gallipoli: the scale of our war is scheduled to run for four years.

Check out The dawn ceremony to bless the exhibition was led by Ngāti Toa, and attended by Carkeek's daughters (from left) Aunty Raita Holes, Aunty Pareraukawa Duff and Aunty Nellie Carkeek. 10 The Maramataka calendar was launched by Te Whakaminenga o Kāpiti on 14 July at a dedication ceremony held at Council. The project coordinator and Te Whakaminenga Chair, Rupene Waaka (right) asked Hohepa Potini of Ngāti Toa,Te Ãtiawa and Ngāti Raukawa to bless the Maramataka contents, a tribute to those whānau who gave their service in World War I. Some paid the ultimate sacrifice. The ceremony was followed by a wonderful meal with manuhiri. 11 economic development grants pygmy whale story opportunity As tāngata whenua, our migration to this region can be traced to the early 19th Century. Te Rauparaha, one of the leading chiefs of Ngāti Toa Rangatira, urged the people to migrate to the Kāpiti region in the south, where there was an abundance of land and resources, and greater opportunity to trade with Pākehā. Establishing the wealth and prosperity of our people was as much a priority then as it is today. In 2013, Te Whakaminenga o Kāpiti adopted a strategy for Māori Economic Development. Implementing this strategy is achieved through a contestable grants processed overseen by representatives from Te Whakaminenga o Kāpiti. In February, A total of $60,000 was available for Māori businesses to apply for funds that align to the Māori Economic Development Strategy. The fund aims to assist whānau, hapū, iwi, mātāwaka and Māori business in Kāpiti with costs associated with the ongoing development of Māori economic activity, in particular activity associated with: Manaakitangata leveraging the potential of rangatahi and building whānau capacity Kaitiakitanga Whatungarongaro te tangata toi tu te whenua (working with the whenua) Kotahitanga - supporting whānau to achieve economic wellbeing through capacity, collaboration, innovation and Māori business. We are delighted that the following organisations were awarded funding Kakano Films Maoriland Film Festival 2015 To support the delivery of the festival Kāpiti Island Nature Tours Tourism / Product Innovation (Luxury Accommodation) Further support of glam-camping by assisting with installation of two shower and composting toilet units Kāpiti Island Manuka Honey Ltd To support manuka honey hives on Kāpiti Island On a beautiful May morning, a pygmy whale was discovered washed up at Te Horo Beach. Accompanied by Heath Tatham, kaumātua Mark Wilson of Katihiku Marae and Pat Hakaraia attended the whale over four hours. People came and went, to pay their respects. Brent Tandy, Senior Ranger with DOC finally arrived with his tape measure and camera to document the whale. He identified it as an adult male, showing a good deal of wear of its teeth, indicative of older age. Cause of death unknown. He found no wounds or bruising that could be linked with fatal injury. Scrapes and minor cuts on the whale were likely to be associated with the stranding event. Contractor, Joe Bradbury turned up in his big digger to facilitate the burial and Libby Hakaraia of Māoriland Films turned up to capture the story. These whales usually travel singly. Not much is known about their biology but they eat squid, fish and crabs , said Brent. Though not rare they are classified as uncommon. They seem to be regular visitors to New Zealand waters based on the stranding records. In the last five years this is the second stranding in the Greater Wellington region. A karakia was said over the whale before removal off the beach to its final resting place in the stone embankment. All the while this was recorded by a local student, Philly Metekingi. Philly is inspired by a filmmaking opportunity that Maoriland Films offer to rangatahi nationwide. Maoriland has a special focus on films that are made by youth., said Libby. The success of the Youth Filmmaking competition in 2014 and 2015 has resulted in MFF securing funding for a series of workshops to be held nationally from August-October One outcome of these workshops will be more films from Māori youth at the next festival. The real beauty of Maoriland Film Festival becomes evident when we consider the needs of the community and its storytelling capacities.
