TŌ MĀTOU KŌRERO: OUR STORY
Huria Trust was established in 1986 by ngā kaumātua o te hapū o Ngāi Tamarāwaho, to umbrella and strengthen the tribal activities which were centred around ‘Tamateapōkaiwhenua’, at Huria Marae, Tauranga Moana.
Built from very humble beginnings, the Trust has developed a solid reputation over the last 30 years by fulfilling the needs and aspirations of whānau māori within the hapū of Ngāi Tamarāwaho and the wider Tauranga & Western BOP communities.
The Trust’s major projects have included the successful building & construction of Te Kōhanga Reo o Huria in 1989, followed by Project Management of the Ngāi Tamarāwaho Hapū ancestral whare,
Tamateapōkaiwhenua II opened in May 2004. In 2010 Huria Trust also provided financial assistance and administration to establish the now, Ngāi Tamarāwaho Tribal Authority Trust (PSGE).
With a number of awards under its belt, the Trust went on to explore the delivery of cultural, social, health and educational services to the community. Today Huria Trust is a Kaupapa Māori, Hapū centric organisation. Our unique value proposition derives from the original purpose of the organisation, that being the re-build of our ancestral house Tamateapōkaiwhenua and the kaitiaki role and intimate relationship we have maintained with our Marae since our inception in 1986. Huria Trust is committed to the advancement of Health, Social, Education and Cultural services to the communities it serves.
Our services are delivered by experienced and trained staff who have acquired strong networks and capability to guide, advocate, support and empower whānau to access community services, both clinical and non-clinical.
Tino Rangatiratanga has it’s roots in the empowerment of each individual, whānau, hapū and Iwi so they are able to sustain control of themselves as their knowledge & skill base grows. All of these things we believe are essential to our well-being and unique identity.
Ko tō mātou tino kaupapa ko te oranga tonutanga o te whānau
