Welcome to the website of Tapuika Iwi

The website will be an important communication tool to update our iwi members on the latest events and happenings for Tapuika not only within the noho kainga but also nationally and globally.

Check out the Tapuika Calendar and Panui for the latest happenings.

For those of you who have events or item you wish to place on the panui board please send your information to info@tapuika.iwi.nz.  

Over time it is hoped to include on the website aspects of our traditions and customs. What will be contained in this section is our perspective of who we are and what is important to us as Tapuika.

Registration

If you or your children are not on the Tapuika Iwi Register you may be missing out on the opportunities offered to our members. You can register online.

If your child is 18 years and over they will need to complete a separate registration form.

Tapuika Iwi Authority (TIA) and the Tapuika Fisheries Trust (TFT) Trustee Elections

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this year’s Trustee elections have been delayed and will now commence in the month of July.

Trustee nomination forms can be downloaded below, and from the TIA Facebook Page. They will not be posted out. Iwi beneficiaries wanting to make a nomination are urged to please download a nomination form taking care to complete it properly. You then scan the completed form and email it back to registration@tapuika.iwi.nz Any incorrect/incomplete forms will be returned to the sender.

Te Puni Kokiri has been approached to act as the independent scrutineers for the Iwi's nomination and election process.As per every annual election, candidates are standing for both the Tapuika Iwi Authority (TIA) and the Tapuika Fisheries Trust (TFT) meaning it is a dual trusteeship role. The term of the positions is for three years (other than for the one year remaining for John Pini's term in the Marukukere hapū).

Trustee nominations close on Friday 31 July 2020 at 12 noon. If a hapū receives nominations for more than one eligible candidate, that hapū will go to a postal ballot during the month of August.

In this election cycle, Marukukere has two Trustee spaces to fill - please see below.
The Trustees standing down this election are as follows:

  • Heketua Roberts (Ngāti Kuri)
  • Raiha Biel (Ngāti Marukukere)
  • Dr Bryce Kihirini (Ngāti Moko)
  • Dean Flavell (Ngāti Tuheke)
  • Vance Skudder (Ngāti Marukukere replacement for John Pini last year)

Each of these Trustees is eligible to stand again for a further term.

If you think you or one of your whānau members has the capacity, skills and passion to assist with governing our Iwi’s multi-million dollar post-settlement asset base, why not put your hand up and give it a go?

Naku te rourou, nau te rourou, ka ora ai to tatou Iwi!
