Te Hononga Maori

Purpose:

Te Hononga Māori is a national committee of TIASA and was established in 1995, initially as Komiti Māori, then in 2005, re-named to Te Hononga Māori.

Te Hononga Māori:

Te Hononga Māori offers guidance and advice to TIASA on issues of significant importance to Māori, including those issues relating to Te Tiriti o Waitangi, Employment Agreements, and policy.

Komiti:

Te Hononga Māori will consist of the Kaumatua, Kuia, Kaituhono and other Māori full members (up to a maximum of 8) so that it is representative of Māori in the Association.

Kaituhono:

The Kaituhono shall represent the views of Māori members of the Association at National level:

Hui-A-Tau:

Te Hononga Māori will meet annually (Hui-A-Tau). In Conference year, Te Hononga Māori will meet prior to Biennial Conference, and through the National Executive, will announce the Association's Kaumatua and Kuia at the Association’s Conference.

Hui-A-Tau will be the mechanism for Māori members to nominate and confirm TIASA’s Kaumatua, Kuia and Kaituhono. These nominations and confirmations will be announced at Biennial Conference for ratification.
