A Hui Taumata will be held in Ngāti Kahungunu on 31 May 2024 at Omāhu Marae to identify solutions for Māori Unity - Kotahitanga. To recap what’s happened to get us to this point leading up to the Hui Taumata see the timeline below:

Iwi leaders around the motu are concerned about the governments signals to reverse, remove, dismiss, dissemble, and unravel years of hard work surrounding Māori cultural recognition and wellbeing.  Iwi leaders signal the need to protect all whānau Māori.

Hui-ā-Motu is hosted by Kiingi Tuheitia at Turangawaewae, Ngaruawahia. An estimated 10,000 Māori and non-Māori from around Aotearoa attended. The overall message is clear: We need to work together and unite our efforts to have more impact in our stance. ​

Among other things, iwi leaders held a 'Tino Rangatiratanga' session to further discuss ways to  support whānau, hapū, iwi to further collectivise the knowledge base and efforts of iwi in the Kotahitanga space, and ensure information is shared across the nation so we can all move forward together.


31 May 2024

The Hui Taumata was an action call to Māoridoms’ thought leaders from around the motu to put forward proposals and discussion documents on achieving Kotahitanga before the hui, so they can be considered and discussed by those in attendance on May 31. 

Website purpose: To share our understanding, belief, and determination to unite and move forward together!

This website has been set up to collaborate across iwi communication channels, utilising the skills, capability and resources of a Comms Collective to effectively communicate with everyone in one space. This website is a vehicle only, not a means to an end. The vision, principles and framework of this kaupapa will come from the united approach of ngā iwi katoa. The shared information is being gathered by a collective of iwi communicators in association with the National Iwi Chairs Forum.
