Iwi Relationships Team

The Iwi Relationships Team is a vital link between us, local iwi and hapu, and the general community. 

Mihi

Mā te Taonga o te Raukura e tohutia te aratika nui mō tātau katoa.
He mihi tēnei mai te rōpū Honongatanga ā iwi me ngā kai mahi māori o Te Kaunihera o te rohe o Niu Paremata kia koutou katoa i raro I te maru o to tātau ariki.
Nau mai whakatau mai.

May the taonga of the raukura guide us all to the rightful pathway.
Greetings from the iwi relationships team and the Māori staff of New Plymouth District Council.
Within the mantle of 'our lord', welcome and let's embrace.
