Vision Ranginui seeks to hear the voices of whānau and hapū to develop a united vision for Ngāti Ranginui. Vision Ranginui is about capturing the aspirations of whānau and hapū to build a strong future for Ngāti Ranginui. Vision Ranginui is a collaboration of three Ngāti Ranginui Entities, Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Ranginui, Ngā Hapū o Ngāti Ranginui Settlement trust and Ngāti Ranginui Fisheries Trust. The common thread throughout is that we are all responsible to Ngā uri o Ngāti Ranginui.
This project is managed by a governance board consisting of two (2) representatives from each of the aforementioned entities. They are Charlie Rahiri & Andrea Laison (Ngāti Ranginui Fisheries), Hemoata Willison & Steph Taiapa (Ngā Hapū o Ngāti Ranginui Settlement Trust) and Tawharangi Nuku and Donna Ngaronoa Gardiner (Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Ranginui).
UENUKURANGI is a name provided by our Koroua Morehu Ngatoko Rahipere for this project. Uenukurangi is the Mauri placed upon Te Toka a Tirikawa by the eponymous tupuna Tamatea Arikinui on the arrival of Takitimu waka in Tauranga. It is a symbol of hope and a promise of prosperity for all descendants of our ancestral waka.
