ABOUT US

Te Kōpere o te iwi o Hineuru Trust (Te Kōpere) was established on 17th March, 2015, to act as the post-settlement governance entity for Hineuru iwi. The role of Te Kōpere is to receive, hold, and manage the Hineuru settlement redress. Te Kopere is also the mandated entity to represent the interests of Hineuru iwi, and is committed to furthering the interests of Hineuru whānau and iwi in all aspects including social, cultural, economic and environmental aspirations.

Te Kōpere are guided by six pou that reflect the aspirations Hineuru tipuna held for their mokopuna and these pou are as follows...

  1. Resotoration and protection of our cultural heritage and history for our future generations.
  2. Restoration of the health and well-being of our people.
  3. Recognition of the mana of Hineuru and restoration of the relativity Hineuru had with other iwi of the region.
  4. Reassertion of the presence of Hineuru through our rohe.
  5. Rebuilding an economic base for Hineuru.
  6. Revitilisation and Restoration of our role as kaitiaki of our resources and environment.

The rohe of Hineuru is described in the pepeha above.

Traditional settlement areas include the high altitude lands located to the south of the plains, bordered by the Titiōkura and Te Waka Ranges to the east and south-east and the Kaweka Ranges to the south and south-west.

The Waipunga River Valley was the focal point of settlement, along with settlements to the south at Te Hāroto and along the Mōhaka River Valley.

The north and north-eastern expanses of the rohe are comprised of the Rangitaiki and Kaingaroa plains, traditionally seasonal mahinga kai areas. The core areas of occupation were the high altitude lands located to the south of the plains, bordered by the Titiōkura and Te Waka Ranges to the east and south-east and the Kaweka Ranges to the south and south-west.

NGĀTI HINEURU IWI INCORPORATED

Ngati Hineuru Iwi Incorporated (NHII) was established in 2009 as the mandated entity to negotiate the Hineuru settlement with the Crown. Ngati Hineuru Iwi Incorporated was an Incorporated Society and from 2009 to 2015, work very closely to negotiate and complete the Hineuru Deed of Settlement.

The Hineuru Deed of Settlement was initialed in July 2014 and was ratified by Hineuru iwi in December 2014. As an Incorporated Society, NHII was not permitted by the Crown to be the post-settlement governance entity for Hineuru. therefore, in developing the settlement redress, NHII also developed the Te Kopere o te iwi o Hineuru Trust as the proposed post-settlement governance entity for Hineuru iwi to receive, hold, and manage the Hineuru settlement. Hineuru iwi also ratified the establishment of this entity in December 2014.

This part is about remembering NHII as this entity was integral to our success in negotiations. The documents on this page include the information that was developed as part of our settlement redress and presentations to the Crown.


HINEURU
COMMERCIAL ACTIVITES

The economic objectives of Hineuru are about growing our asset base to help further our social, cultural and environmental aspirations as an iwi. We must grow our assets prudently and be a little more creative in wealth creation for Hineuru.

The next year will be committed to growing the Hineuru asset base. The focus initially is about receiving, managing and developing the following assets:

  • Woodstock Station - The management and development of Woodstock Station, which is comprised of a 1551 hectare farm block and a 411 hectare forestry block.
  • Investment - The investment of funds to maximise return.
  • Esk Forest - The management of Esk Forest, a 4255 hectare pine radiata forest.

The management, development and growth of these assets will be guided by:

  • SIPO - The development of a Statement of Investment Policy and Objectives.
  • Business Plan - The development and implementation of business plans for Woodstock Station.
  • Economic Development Plan- The development and implementation of a long term economic development plan.

CHARITABLE ACTIVITIES
WITHIN HINEURU TRUST

Hineuru Charitable Trust was set up in September 2015 to:

  • Promote the education of the iwi
  • Protect the natural environment within the Hineuru rohe and assist the iwi in the role of kaitiaki of the natural environment within the Hineuru rohe
  • Maintain and protect places of cultural and spiritual significance to Hineuru
  • Provide education for the wellbeing of the iwi community in te reo Maori, the history and culture of Hineuru
  • Provide services and programmes to meet the charitable needs of members of the iwi
  • Promote the administration and maintenance of Hineuru marae
  • Provide any other charitable services considered by the Trust considered beneficial to the iwi

There are some exciting projects that Hineuru Charitable Trust are currently working on, including the publication of a book about Hineuru. This publication will be a treasure, detailing the Hineuru history and will tell the Hineuru story using maps, photos and be set out in a user friendly manner.

Another project that Hineuru Charitable Trust is working on is the provision of scholarships and grants to Hineuru iwi with the aspiration of supporting education ambitions of Hineuru whānau.

In an effort to promote and strengthen Hineuru tribal traditions Hineuru Charitable Trust will be holding celebratory events such as a Hineuru Day, a wānanga series and commemoration events for the 150 year anniversary of the land confiscations. These events are focused on bringing our people together for whakawhanaunga and to celebrate and revitalise all of our tribal traditions so that this knowledge is preserved and developed for all Hineuru uri.
