Haere mai ki Te Pūnaha Matatini
Toki nui te toki!
Toki roa te toki!

Ka whanatu au
Ka hahau i te takapū o Rangi e tū nei
Ka hinga, ka mate …
Ki a Papatūānuku e takoto nei –
Tihei mauri ora!

One year after Cyclone Gabrielle, Te Pūnaha Matatini has co-sponsored a week-long series of events aimed at reflecting on the past, understanding the present, and envisioning a resilient future in Tairāwhiti.
Several Te Pūnaha Matatini investigators visited the blustery Chatham Islands in October 2023 to connect with the community and their taonga species.
