The Contemporary Application of Rahui

Ngāti Kahu

Could you imagine your beach without fish, crayfish, or any seafood? Neither could Te Whānau Moana! Over the years, the hapū of Te Whānau Moana me Te Rorohuri noticed the depletion of seafood in Maitai and Waikura bays. They are the backdrop of some of the most popular camping sites in New Zealand. Placing a rāhui on the area was the necessary step to ensure the growth and replenishment of kaimoana for the whānau whānui. Despite Iwi political issues, we have worked together for the greater good to ensure there is plentiful marine life for future generations. Ruby Anne works in the wharenui as the kaikaranga and supports the marae in its work and is a strong proponent of the rāhui and sustainability work being undertaken by her marae.
