Tuia te rangi e tū nei, tuia te papa e takoto nei, tuia rātou kua wehea atu ki te pō-uriuri ki te pō-tangotango; he kura i tangihia, he maimai aroha ki a rātou e hoe ana i ngā tai tapu ki Hawaiki.
Tuia rātou i te pō, tuia tātou i te ao marama, tuia e te piringa, tuia e ōna uri, inā hoki nā rātou te karanga kia huia mai ki runga ki te papa e takoto ake nei. Nei rā te whai i te ia o whakaaro i tukuna atu ai i te kare o kupu, te reo pōwhiri ki a tātou, otirā koutou kua tae mai, tēnā koutou, nau mai.
Haere mai ki tā tātou hui ā tau, hei matapaki i ngā kōrero e pā ana ki tā koutou Tarahiti mō te tau kua hori, ōna piki, me ōna heke, otirā ki kōnei whakatau ai i ngā pātai me ngā whakaaro.
Nei rā te mihi ki te minenga, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou katoa.

About the Raukawa ki te Tonga Trust
The Trust was established in 2010 by Iwi members as the Mandated Iwi Organisation (MIO), under the Māori Fisheries Act 2004 (the Act), for Raukawa ki te Tonga in respect of fisheries matters. The Trust’s fisheries assets were received in a settlement with the Crown of Ngāti Raukawa’s commercial fisheries claim. Those assets were transferred to the Trust in 2010 by Te Ohu Kaimoana (TOKM), the body responsible for allocation.
The population-based fisheries assets transferred were:
- Fisheries quota valued at $3.47 million
- Cash of $949,000
- Shares in Moana New Zealand, formerly known as Aotearoa Fisheries Limited valued at $9.10 million.
A requirement of the Māori Fisheries Act 2004 was that each Mandated Iwi Organisation (MIO) establish an Asset Holding Company (AHC) and that Settlement Assets be transferred to the AHC to hold and manage on behalf of the MIO.
