He Tohu Whakamārama

Our logo represents the unique and iconic “reti board” that is synonymous to Ngāti Pāhauwera.

The “reti board” is a Ngāti Pāhauwera exemplar of an ancient creation of innovation in catching the world famous Mohaka kahawai.

Symbolised within the body of the “reti board” is “Paikea”, revered taniwha of the Mohaka. The Mohaka, Waihua and Waikare rivers are reflected in the logo background.
