Te Rarawa opens its three-day summit hui in Kaitaia today as it seeks to steer its waka into a post-settlement environment.

Chairperson Haami Piripi says the iwi wants to take the settlement back to its people so they can indicate where they want to go.

He says while there has been a focus on empowering hapū and marae, the iwi also needs to reach out to Te Rarawa people who have taken their talent and skills and moved away.

“We want to try and provide an opportunity for those set of people to bring that knowledge home and share it with us. While they’re here drink from the well of their history and culture here, from the ahi kaa. It’s the biggest challenge I think that the rural iwi like us have, is how to meet the needs of the 80 percent of us that don't live here”.

Haami Piripi says the summit will look at opportunities for Te Rarawa involving education, the environment as well as social, cultural and economic development.
