What is the purpose of this presentation? To inform the wider Ngāi Tumapuhiarangi community who have little contact and have little knowledge about the claim and the rohe. This lack of understanding is not unusual As people have transitioned to other areas for employment, education, build a new whanau, housing they become more isolated from their tipuna whanua We want to inform them in as many ways as possible, this is one way Its not the Crown’s role to inform our people, its up to us. No one else can do it.
Its about our cultural heritage Our heritage is about us as a people and a people as us. As we unpack more about our cultural content we need to ensure others know about as well Many have little knowledge about our whenua, for example Te Maipi is just a name to them. The have little knowledge as to where it is. Pukaroro No 1, Pahaoa and Te Unuunu and Waikekeno are just names – what they stand for is relatively unknown to the wider hapu community.
Our rohe The rohe of Ngai Tumapuhairangi is about who we are The threads of connections to our neighbours The inter marriage over time The use of each others resources The exchanges through the use of the sea as avenues of access and migrating peoples off to settle elsewhere or travellers on single destination ventures stopping over before continuing onwards
