Te Ara Whānui
Many Paths, Many Aspirations
Te Ara Whänui is our vision. It is the blueprint that sets a unified direction for the aspirations of Ngäti Kuri, underpinned by our history and the connections established by our ancestors.
The name, Te Ara Whānui, refers to the many pathways of encounter that spread across the Far North. The pathways are drawn together by a waka (canoe) - a representation of our journey through time, and a reminder of the interconnection of all living things.
The waka signifies the importance of our relationship and responsibilities to the natural world. It unifies and reminds us of the collective effort required to retain and strengthen those elements that distinguish and determine our cultural identity and wellbeing.
