NGĀTI PĀHAUWERA DEVELOPMENT TRUST |  SUPERGOLD CARD HOLDERS

Hawke’s Bay Regional Council is reassuring SuperGold card holders that the free off-peak bus travel scheme will continue in Hawke’s Bay despite a recent announcement by Government to cap funding of the scheme.

From 1 July 2016 Government funding of transport under the SuperGold card scheme will change from an individual fare reimbursement to a capped bulk funding model of $28 million nationwide each year.

Hawke’s Bay Regional Council Transport Committee Chairman Alan Dick says HBRC has no plans to change the scheme.
“The SuperGold card travel scheme provides a valuable service to residents and helps to use spare capacity on our GoBay buses during off-peak times.”

He says SuperGold card holders can travel on the GoBay bus services free throughout Hastings, Havelock North, Taradale and Napier between 9am and 3pm on weekdays and any time on weekend or public holiday services

NGĀTI PĀHAUWERA DEVELOPMENT TRUST | EDUCATION GRANTS

Ngāti Pāhauwera Development Trust are pleased to announce that funding for Education & Community Grants are now OPEN from the 1st December 2015 to 13th March 2016 for consideration by the Manaaki Committee of the Trust.

Community Grants will be considered over the entirety of the above mentioned period. Education Grant applications will be accepted, but, consideration will only be made once the closing date has been reached.

This is the third consecutive year that funding has been made available to the beneficiaries of Ngāti Pāhauwera to support whanau aspirations in both Secondary (Boarding) & Tertiary Education and providing much needed support to the Community. In the previous financial year the Manaaki Committee made a total distribution to the amount of $175,000.00 in grants.

The grants supported 9 Community Groups and an additional 67 beneficiaries in either Secondary or Tertiary education. This saw an increase of applicants last year where four groups had applied for grants in the 2013/2014 financial year and nine Community Groups in the last financial year 2014/2015, the applicants more than doubled. Just fantastic!

Likewise, a larger increase in applicants for Education Grants where 23 beneficiaries had been provided a grant in the 2013/2014 financial year and 67 beneficiaries in the last financial year 2014/2015. The increase in applicants were just staggering! The applicants almost tripled!!

What a way to be able to help our beneficiaries and community alike.

This financial year approx. $215,000.00 has been made available to the Manaaki Committee for distribution through Education and Community Grants, a massive increase of 22.8% in funding!

The Committee will be expecting a large interest this financial year and would like to take the opportunity to thank all the applicants in advance in taking an interest in the communities development as well as caring for the future of our beneficiaries educational aspirations.

Please see below for the appropriate application forms in either: Secondary Education, Tertiary Education or Community Grants.

NGĀTI PĀHAUWERA DEVELOPMENT TRUST | Te Ao Pukoro

Pūkoro comes to life online

27 October 2015

Creators of the Māori educational children’s show, Pūkoro, are entering a new realm to bring it’s characters, songs and puzzles to life, online.

TE AO PŪKORO is the cyber world of Pūkoro, full of interactive computer games, video clips with craft ideas and stories, printable colouring-in sheets and much more.

General Manager of Kura Productions, Karen Waaka-Tibble says the development of TE AO PŪKORO was something Kura had envisaged when Pūkoro first started, as a way to provide support to whānau and kōhanga committed to fostering te reo Māori.

“This is a chance for us to give our pre-schoolers’ favourite te reo Māori television programme, the same value and depth as shows like Dora the Explorer and Sesame Street.  Much of what makes up the website has been sourced from themes of the show itself, but the games have been created from scratch. It’s new and exciting and we can’t wait to see  what the kids think of the games – remembering it’s targeted at our pēpi!!”

Content on the website has been taken from season eight of the hit television show and is all in te reo Māori, and was supported with funding from Te Māngai Pāho’s Digital Innovation Fund 2014.

Popular female Pūkoro presenter, Naomi Toilalo, continues her presence on TE AO PŪKORO as the upbeat-voice for the bilingual navigational instrutions, to help non-speakers and learners of te reo Māori find their way around the site.

As a second language learner, she says “being part of a show that creates awareness of te reo Māori is a real privilege”.

“My main goal when I was a teenager was that I wanted to learn Māori. I hoped that I could get into television so it’s still quite surreal that I’ve been able to speak Māori on TV… it’s also really cool to do a show that your kids love”.

Series nine of Pūkoro wrapped up earlier this year and Kura Productions are hoping to make a milestone tenth season in 2016 and take Te Ao Pūkoro to new heights.

Executive Producer, Quinton Hita says “resources of this quality for kōhanga aged children are extremely rare and is paving the way for Pūkoro to continue beyond television”.

“We’re trying to think of new ways to celebrate our reo and support those that want to learn… this is just the first step for us and hopefully we can build on this and create other reo-speaking worlds for our tamariki to engage with”.

Te Ao Pūkoro will soon be launched at an ‘invitation only, exclusive event” hosted by presenters of Pūkoro.  Only a few will be lucky enough to attend this event, with golden tickets being given away on the Pūkoro Facebook page.

NGĀTI PĀHAUWERA DEVELOPMENT TRUST | 1080 in the Mohaka Forest

The Ngati Pahauwera Development Trust has informed TB Ospri that the Trust opposed to the proposal to use 1080 in the Mohaka Forest.

Although TB Ospri did agree to a 1080 drop outside the pig hunting season and the use of deer repellent TB Ospri could not provide assurances to the Trust on its initial concern of avoiding drops of poison in waterways and provision of land based controls where practical rather than aerial application.

TB Ospri has informed the Trust it has postponed its plans for a aerial 1080 drop in Mohaka forest.

TB Ospri has further requested a meeting with the Trustees to discuss options going forward.  This meeting will occur later in the month.

Additionally the Trust is also meeting with the Ngati Pahauwera members with Pest Control qualifications or individuals interested  in training in the area of Pest Destruction to enable us to provide a effective land based pest destruction operation.  Interested parties can contact the NPDT office for details regarding training.

No employment opportunities are guaranteed by the NPDT as that responsibility and the government budgets for that work rests with different agencies with whom the Trust are in dialogue.

The Trustees are committed to supporting the social, cultural and environmental concerns of the Ngati Pahauwera people in respect to both 1080 and pest eradication.

NGĀTI PĀHAUWERA DEVELOPMENT TRUST | MOTU THESIS SCHOLARSHIPS – NOW OPEN

Every year, the Motu Research and Education Foundation offers a one-year $10,000 scholarship to a promising university student of Māori descent planning to work on an Honours, Masters or PhD thesis. The preference is that this topic be in economics, or some other social science, and use a quantitative methodology.

“Through this scholarship, we hope to enhance Māori research capacity and encourage students of Māori descent to develop an interest in researching topics relevant to public policy development,” said Adam B Jaffe, Director of Motu Economic and Public Policy Research Trust.

One of Motu’s key tasks is to build New Zealand’s capacity for economic and public policy research. Part of this is to improve the capacity and ability of individuals, groups and institutions to carry out empirical and theoretical research on New Zealand public policy through training, collaboration, and sponsorship of students or researchers.

“Our aim is to make New Zealand a more attractive location for top researchers, including expatriate New Zealanders, to work,” said Adam Jaffe. “We figure if we help the good ones while they’re young, they might remember us fondly as they mature.”

More information on the scholarship can be found on the Motu website click here.

The deadline for scholarship applications is 16 December.

NGĀTI PĀHAUWERA DEVELOPMENT TRUST | UPDATE: RECENT MOHAKA RIVER TRAGEDY

By now, everyone will have heard about the horrific vehicle accident on the Mohaka river last Saturday the 07 November 2015.

Members of Ngati Pahauwera have been working with the Police to keep updated on the progress of their investigation and to ensure the cultural safety of everyone on the site and to acknowledge the state of tapu posed by the tupapaku being in the river.

By Sunday afternoon a team of Pahauwera people arrived at the accident site to bless the site and all those involved in clearing and investigating this accident.   A 14 day rahui has also been imposed on the river, and local beaches, from the 08 of November to midnight on the 21 of November out of respect for the recovered tupapaku and their whanau.

Some of you may have noticed the rahui posted earlier on this website, in summary there is to be:

  • No fishing
  • No collecting of kaimoana or kaiawa,
  • No collecting of sand, wood, hangi stones, or shingle

For the duration of the rahui.

A notice has been posted in the Wairoa Star and signs put up just passed the Mohaka School entrance, at the rest area beside the bridge at Te Arakanihi and by the entrance to the Old Coach Road.

A further karakia was held on Monday as the NZ Police concluded their activities in the river and a blessing conducted over the crash vehicle later that day back at the Wairoa Police station.   The vehicle has since been taken to Gisborne for ongoing investigation.

Our thanks to our Kaikarakia, Chaans Clarke, Fred McRoberts and Kuki Green for keeping all those involved in this incident culturally and spiritually safe; for upholding the tapu of those that have passed on and ensuring the sanctity of our awa and our whenua.

The NZ Police have also kept us updated on the progress of their investigation, with meetings held on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.   Concerns were raised at the manner in which the media have put an emphasis on the crash victims being gang members.   Police are currently liaising with both gangs in the area to work with Police until this investigation is complete.

Police would like to reassure everyone at home that they are doing all they can to bring out the facts surrounding this incident.   As part of that reassurance there will be a visible presence within our district over the next couple of weeks as a lot of traffic is expected along our roads going to and from the tangi that will be held in Wairoa at the end of this week.

At this time our thoughts and our aroha are with the whanau pani and all those who mourn for the three men who have been taken by this tragedy.

Kua heke mai te parekawakawa I runga I a Whakapunake
Puke ana te wai, puke ana te wai, aue taukuri e
Nga mate kua ngaro,
Kua kapohia ohoreretia koutou I te ringakaha o aitua,
Te ringa kaore e taea te karo
No reira, nga aweawe o Te Rawhiti
Te motoi kahurangi, e moe, whakaaio ki te mate,
E moe, oki oki
Kati ra

Ngāti Pāhauwera Development Trust | Preparing for the future

The Trustees have been working with the new CEO to plan how Ngāti Pāhauwera Development Trust best positions itself for the future and they have adopted his recommendation and agreed on a more fit for purpose management model.

The outcome of this will see Marie Moses adopt a more formal role for day to day management of all staff, retention of Karl Wixon in a reduced contracted capacity to complete some planning and reporting work whilst we consolidated our operation over the next 6 to 9 months to ensure we are well positioned for the future build of Ngāti Pāhauwera.


 

NGĀTI PĀHAUWERA DEVELOPMENT TRUST | Employment Opportunity – Driving Instructor/Mentor

I am sending this to all and sundry as Wairoa has been given MSD funding to get 50 clients through their restricted and full licences if we find someone who will be a mentor/driving instructor. This may lead to other employment opportunities if the right person wants to pick up this opportunity and go with it.

In order to secure this funding we need to let MSD know that we have the means to fulfill the contractual obligations by next week.

So, if any of you know someone who has a clean(ish) record and is capable of mentoring people in this community towards getting their licence, with a view to becoming a qualified driving instructor at no cost to them, please let me know. There is some paperwork involved in terms of creating a spreadsheet and submitting timesheets etc, but it is not onerous. The long term plan is for someone to fulfill this contract with a view to becoming a self employed, qualified driving instructor at the end of it.

We have a vehicle here for the contract, and there will be no outlay if someone says YES.

Please put on your thinking hats and holler back if you know of someone who would be keen on doing this.

If you have any questions don’t hesitate to call me…..

NGĀTI PĀHAUWERA DEVELOPMENT TRUST | Digitisation Training Update

NPDT Digitisation Staff at Te PapaThe Ngāti Pāhauwera Development Trust has initiated a Digitisation Project to digitise photographs from the Iwi and preserve them for the future. Recently, four team members travelled to Wellington to train with some of the best the country has to offer at the National Library, Te Papa and Archives New Zealand. Training included a handling workshop, processes, equipment, research sessions and tours of relevant departments. As our kaumātua and kuia pass on, so too do their memories and recollections of who are in photographs. Time is of the essence to get as many photographs digitised and details recorded. We intend in the future to encompass other media into the project such as video, oral histories and research.

NGĀTI PĀHAUWERA DEVELOPMENT TRUST | HBRC – WATCH ON FOR ALGAL BLOOM

The current weather conditions, resulting in lower river flows and warmer water temperatures, increase the likelihood of algal blooms in Hawke’s Bay fresh waterways.

Hawke’s Bay Regional Council and Hawke’s Bay District Health Board remind people to take care around streams, rivers and lakes as algal blooms can be toxic to humans and dogs. HBRC staff have not observed any cyanobacteria mats yet this summer but are monitoring popular recreational sites on the Ngaruroro, Tutaekuri and Tukituki rivers each week. Anyone displaying signs of illness after being in a river bed should seek medical advice from a doctor immediately.  Similarly, dogs or other animals that get sick after being in a river should get prompt veterinary attention. The HBDHB Public Health Unit should be alerted in the event of health issues occurring after contact with river or lake water.

The On Call Health Protection Officer can be contacted on 06 834 1815.

NGĀTI PĀHAUWERA DEVELOPMENT TRUST | REGAIN PIHANUI  LAND OF ANCESTORS

Ngāti Pāhauwera Development Trust Chairperson Toro Waaka has confirmed the trust has been successful in its bid to purchase Pihanui Station. Tenders closed last Friday, with more than 10 bids received.

The purchase aligns with the cultural, social and economic goals of the trust, Mr Waaka said. “The station currently provides employment opportunities to Ngāti Pāhauwera members and as we grow our landholdings, so the employment opportunities will grow. “We intend to add to the resources and returns from the station to progress our long-term strategy of improving the wellbeing of the trust members,” Mr Waaka said.

Ngati Pahauwera Trustee Charlie Lambert said it was very exciting for Ngāti Pāhauwera to have more of their traditional land back. “The land at Pihanui Station is a part of who we are as a people and having it back should be something to celebrate. “Our ancestor Te Kahu o Te Rangi walked up these lands beside the Waiau River marking the Tawai trees with his toki — to let everyone know this was Pāhauwera land,” Mr Lambert said.

Ngāti Pāhauwera Commercial Development Trust chair Luis McDonnell said the purchase fell in line with the decision made by the trustees in 2012 to develop their farms into a viable agribusiness. He said it was a critical step in their production goal of 100,000 stock units by 2025. The farm is a sheep and beef enterprise but also has large tracts of manuka which will be utilised in the future. Mr McDonnell has just returned from a 14-day trip to a number of Asian countries as part of the Iwi Honey coalition.
