Nau mai piki mai! Hineuru Whakapiki Wairua Day
Tēnā tātou Hineuru whānui
We wish to welcome you to our Whakapiki Wairua Day, being held next week, 12 April 2023, at the Napier War Memorial Conference Centre. This pānui provides you with more information about the why and the what of this kaupapa.
After the past six weeks of turmoil, we wanted to touch base with our whanau to check in and see how everyone was going and provide a space for whānau to come and take their mind off things for an hour or two with mirimiri, haircuts and even foot spas.
The purpose of this day is to relax a little and have a kai and kōrero.
We will all meet at the Napier War Memorial Conference Centre and then split for a few hours.
Tamariki and Rangatahi
A 50-seater bus will arrive at 10:45 AM to take our tamariki and rangatahi to the Napier Aquatic Centre. Please bring togs and a towel.
We will have some kai at the pools for tamariki and will be returned to the War Memorial. An adult must accompany children under 5 years of age.
Seats on the bus are first in, first served, and people will accompany our rangatahi.
Adults / Pakeke
We have organised for people to be available to pamper you and make you feel a little better.
Our whānau are most welcome. For mirimiri and haircuts, walk-ins are welcome on a first-come, first-served basis. Parents, bring your tamariki and come and relax for a little bit. Pakeke and kaumatua, come and have a little pamper day and let go of some of the stress.
Maori Womens Welfare League will also join us to help whānau complete the census.
We will conclude the day with a hangi on the forecourt at 2:45 PM to pick up on the way out.
Please register your interest at email@example.com, and we will see you there.
Mai Hineuru, mō Hineuru.

Education Grants 2023

HIT and the Committee understand that sometimes the pursuit of education can be a difficult and financially burdensome task. The Grants Scheme is a way that the Trust can contribute to the development of iwi members’ education while providing flexibility in how the allocated grant is spent.
Last year 114 iwi members benefited from the Education Grants. The Trust looks forward to receiving a similar or greater number of applications.
The Committee has appointed Maria Rahui as the Grants Administrator for this year. As such, she will be available to provide support to applicants. You can make contact via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone: 027 318 9344

Chief Executive, Robyn Rauna, has formally tendered her resignation. The trustees accepted Ms Rauna’s resignation at the January meeting; her final day with the Trust was officially Friday, 3 March, though Robyn has tidied up loose ends over the last week.
Robyn made the following statement:
“I have enjoyed my time with Ngāti Hineuru and have deeply valued the relationships I have formed over the last three years. It has been my privilege to work for you all. I wish Hineuru Iwi Trust all the very best in the future!”
Accordingly, the Trust wanted to take a moment to express our gratitude and appreciation for all that Robyn has done for the iwi. Her dedication, hard work, and guidance have been invaluable to our organisation, particularly during the unprecedented times of the Covid-19 pandemic through to the various legislative challenges right up to the most recent reforms of the Resource Management Act.
Chairman, Mana Hazel, said:
“E kore e maroke i te rā i ngā au mihi ki a koe Robyn. He nui ngā mahi āu i ngā tau. Pērā i te Mate Urutā o Kōwhiore 19. Pērā anō i te Resource Management Act (RMA) kei mua i te aroaro i te kāwana i tēnei wā. He iti noa iho ngā mea kua whakahuatia engari te hōhohu o ngā kaupapa arā rā kē te mātātoru o ngā mahi! Nā reira, haere, hoki atu ki tō iwi o Te Aitanga Ā Māhaki, hoki pai atu i ngā rau aroha o Hineuru iwi”
Robyn, Hineuru Iwi Trust thanks you for your service, dedication, and unwavering commitment to the iwi. The Trust wishes Robyn well in her new role. Robyn is to become the Chief Executive of Te Aitanga Ā Māhaki.
Conversely, the Trust is pleased to announce that David Jones has been appointed the interim Chief Executive. David will not be a stranger to many; he has formerly held the role of Chief Executive for Hineuru Iwi Trust. He will provide continuity as the Trust selects a new Chief Executive. Note the recruitment process for the new Chief Executive is underway. Applications have been extended, and they now close on 22 March. Once shortlisting and interviews have concluded, the Trust will provide the iwi with an update in due time. Until then, Trust welcomes David into the role and looks forward to working with him.
Hineuru Iwi Trust
Ps. Do you know someone who could be interested in being our new CE? If so, more information can be found here.
The Trust is pleased to advise the iwi that the first lot of supplies was airlifted into Te Haroto yesterday. This is a fantastic result, and we welcome the support being provided by CDEM.
Rest assured; your chairman, trustees, CE and operations team are working in the background to ensure outcomes and support for those who reside in the Bay. We know that up to 60% of Hineuru iwi members live in the Hawke’s Bay, and we want to ensure that adequate and equitable support is being provided.
In saying this, to assist in the immediate efforts on the ground, the Trust has pledged $10,000 to be paid to Te Taiwhenua O Te Whanganui Ā Orotu. In addition, the trustees on the ground will conduct welfare checks with Hineuru whānau in Napier and Hastings. This will allow us to see where we can lobby for additional support and/or potentially fill any shortcomings where necessary.

Hawke’s Bay’s new Regional Economic Development Agency (REDA) is in good hands, with a highly skilled line-up of board members appointed to lead the organisation and provide a strong economic voice for the region.
The Matariki Governance Group (MGG) today endorsed the chairman and four board members, following a robust appointment process that attracted many highly qualified candidates.
MGG co-chair Alex Walker said underpinning the appointment selection was the creation of a strong organisation, with mana and positioning, that could give life to the MGG’s aspirations of a thriving Hawke’s Bay economy.
“As a regional leadership group we recognise that partnerships across iwi and hapū Māori, business, and the public and private sectors are essential to create the conditions for regional economic success.
“Imagine a Hawke’s Bay where everyone is actively engaged in, and benefitting from, a thriving regional economy – that’s our aim.
“This newly appointed board brings significant commercial and governance experience along with a strong lens and passion for Hawke’s Bay’s economic development.”
Matariki Governance Group co-chair Leon Symes said the agency would also feed into the wider aims of the MGG.
“REDA will help realise the Matariki Regional Development Strategy, which envisages Hawke’s Bay as a region where wellbeing is enjoyed by every whānau, because the right learning and career opportunities are in place to make sure nobody is left behind.”
Experienced governor and outgoing Napier Port chairman Alasdair MacLeod has been appointed the board chair.
Having held many key roles in Hawke’s Bay, he brings extensive networks, credibility, and economic acumen to lead REDA through its formation, and help set its course for the future.
With its strong business, cultural, social and environmental infrastructure, Hawke’s Bay is a region businesses, investors, talent and visitors want to come to, Mr MacLeod said.
“REDA, as Hawke’s Bay’s most influential new economic enabler, will amplify what others in the region are already doing and, alongside other business support agencies, act as a front door for business in the region.”
The four other board members also brought significant commercial and governance experience, along with a passion for Hawke’s Bay’s economic development.
REDA’s primary focus will be on creating new platforms for growth for Hawke’s Bay by encouraging and enabling new economic activity in the region, and fostering investment and efforts to support a thriving business environment.
BBI Wood Products managing director Brendan O’Sullivan was involved in each phase of the establishment of REDA and said he was pleased to see the board had now been appointed, and was looking forward to the new entity engaging with business and industry in 2023.
“I’m excited about the potential for REDA and the difference it will make for our business sector and the Hawke’s Bay economy as a whole.”
