Nga Tangata o Mangatawa

Nga Tangata o Mangatawa is a Whakapapa and Hitori project aimed at engaging with our whanau and  creating a space to  share korero with us. Through intimate one-on-one sessions and immersive wānanga, we want to capture taonga tuku iho, stories passed down, and honour these taonga by capturing them to create a forum that will one day tell the story of Mangatawa Tuturu, Mangatawa Tangata, Mangatawa Whenua. 

Where did this idea come from?

On the shores of the glistening tāhuna o Rangataua, with feet grounded to Opopoti, and the vision of our tohorā maunga, Maungamana, in the distance, gathered kaumatua, pākeke, rangatahi and tamariki alike. In an event of whakawhanaungatanga unfolded an enriching, emotional journey, and experience for many of our shareholders and beneficiaries. The unique 2021 event involved the courageous act of whānau standing to share their stories and the manaakitanga shown by those bearing witness. The blossoming of relationships through kōrero created connections that will last lifetimes. The absorbing of mātauranga, developing perspectives of whakaaro alike and unalike, helped evolve our capacity to give and receive aroha. The observations of tuākana-tēina relations between the generations were a true illustration of Māoritanga; we all witnessed the healing powers of kotahitanga. All these acts are demonstrations of rangatiratanga, kaitiakitanga, and manaakitanga united to create this ātaahua display of the word “whānau.”
