The Road to 2035
From 2017 to 2035 a different set of principles will inform future development:
Long term sustainable growth is a core principle for this period of development. Growing the competency of more of our people to converse in our reo and the numbers of our people able to converse confidently requires a long term commitment. As a result, we will enjoy growth in the number of our kaikorero, kaikaranga and kaiwaiata. Equally, restoring healthy stocks of kaimoana that are plentiful for generations to come, requires a disciplined and radical approach. Growing our money requires restraint and a diverse portfolio that is responsive to the economic climate as well as Iwi demands.
Our greatest strength as an Iwi is our people. Our communication methods must reflect the realities of our people and the wider communities, to ensure that as an Iwi organisation, we are accessible.
Ngāi Tāmanuhiri values the principle of manaakitanga that upholds the mana of others because we value our relationships with others. Building on our connections with our whānau, our hapū, Iwi, wider communities, government, indigenous peoples and business partners is an important focus in this period of development.
The priority areas from 2017 to 2035 are:
- Mana Whenua Mana Moana
- Mana Tīpuna
- Mana Whānau
- Pūtea Investments
