Haea Te Awa

‘Haea te awa, puta i tua, puta i waho….’

Haea Te Awa was developed by Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu in response to the Papatipu Rūnanga Aspirations Group presentations, ‘Auahi-Auora’, in 2016. A key theme from these presentations was the need for a new phase for Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu 20 years after settlement, and a focus on regional rangatiratanga and papatipu rūnanga development.

At its hui in November 2019, Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu approved a new Investment Charter, a new Financial Policy, and a Regional Development Strategy to meet the aspirations of papatipu rūnanga. These will take effect in July 2020.

A distribution policy has been reviewed and reconfirmed, a pou whenua project is in development, and a universal value creation programme is also in progress.
