The Trust was proposed and ratified by the Iwi as the Iwi Post Settlement Governance Entity.

The Trust Deed objects guide the trustee’s activities and decisions to protect and grow the assets.  Two key objects:

  1. to establish a commercial company, wholly owned by Te Tāhuhu, to carry out commercial activities and 
  2. community development trust

As per the Trust Deed, the election of trustees is by rotation, held at the annual general meeting in the year of election.

Te Kaikaitahuna Management Company (TKM) is the general partner under the Te Ara o Hinerua Limited Partnership. TKM is responsible for managing the commercial assets on behalf of Te Tāhūhū O Tawakeheimoa Trust. As the commercial arm we are also responsible for identifying and progressing new commercial opportunities.

TKM current responsibilities include managing the iwi forestry portfolio and the Hamurana Springs Recreation Reserve.   

Kaikaitahuna ‘Hamurana Springs’ is a place of special significance since the time of Tawakeheimoa. It was a place of abundance, where the tūpuna lived, raised their whanau, worked, fought, died, and, in some cases were even buried there. This reserve was returned to the iwi in the 2014 Ngāti Rangiwewehi Treaty Settlement.
