Pending confirmation from the Crown, we are making plans to have our Ngāti Rangitihi Deed of Settlement Signing Ceremony on Saturday 5 December at Rangitihi Marae.

A formal event notice and programme will follow once we have confirmation from the Crown on Ministers’ availability.

As we plan for this event, we need to get a firm idea of how many of our whānau will be attending. We would like as many of our whānau there as possible to join in the celebrations.

Make sure you RSVP now

This will be a big event, so we need to ensure we are prepared and can cater for all those who are intending to attend. If you are able to join the celebrations if the event is held on 5 December, we ask that you please RSVP by emailing [email protected] or calling us on 0800 AKATEA to let us know.

Registration to attend the signing is compulsory (for catering and contact tracing purposes). Registrations close on Monday 30 November.

If whānau are planning to stay overnight at Rangitihi Marae (either on Friday 4 December or Saturday 5 December) please also let us know using the above contact details so we can make sure the appropriate arrangements are in place.

Note: If Aotearoa moves up an Alert Level from Alert Level 1 due to COVID-19, or in the event there is a tangihanga, the event will be postponed to a later date.

Art exhibition and entertainment – call for artists

This event will also be an opportunity to share the talents of our Ngāti Rangitihi whānau.
We are calling for expressions of interests for artists to display their art in a special exhibition on the day.

Share your photos

We are organising for a photo display of Ngāti Rangitihi uri and our beautiful whenua and awa to feature on the day.

If you have any photos to share, please email these to us, or bring them to the Te Mana office (Arawa Street, Matatā) so we can scan them.

Thank you for your continued support whānau. We are looking forward to seeing you at the signing, if you can make it.
