He Rāhui Moana

A Rāhui has been placed from Waitahanui Awa to Wahieroa (Walkers beach) reaching out to Rurima (Raus) from Tuesday 8 November to Monday 14th November 2022.

This Rāhui follows the finding of a tūpapaku (body) near Matatā.

This morning representatives from Ngāti Rangitihi led a Karakia Rāhui with iwi members to begin the Rāhui process.

This area is now in a state of tapu, whereby the placing of a Rāhui is a safety measure that will allow the environment to replenish itself.

The Rāhui is expected to lift on Tuesday 15th November.
