Te Herenga Kairangi, Hutt City Council’s Rautaki Māori

In early 2024, Hutt City Council approved Te Herenga Kairangi, a rautaki (strategy) consolidating all council work aimed at improving outcomes for Māori.

After consultation with Mana Whenua and hapori Māori (Māori communities), three key outcomes are set out in the strategy:

  • Council and hapori Māori have strong and trusting relationships.
  • Māori are healthy, culturally accepted, sheltered and economically secure.
  • Te Kaunihera o Te Awa Kairangi is a Te Ao Māori capable organisation.

Te Herenga Kairangi sets out a range of current and planned council initiatives and projects.  Bringing them together creates a mechanism to allow the Council to measure the delivery of work tied directly to outcomes. These will be reported to the community.

Te Herenga Kairangi – meaning The Interwoven Ambition to Thrive - is a tangible expression that continues Council’s commitment to activating Te Tiriti o Waitangi.
