Welcome to Te Pare ō Toi
Like our great ancestors, we look to te pō, the space that blankets our sky each night to reveal the tapestry of stars that connect us to our past and future generations. It is in the darkness, that we see the light of our tomorrow.
The name of our guiding strategy, Te Toi Ahorangi honours our eponymous ancestor Toi te Huatahi. Te Moana a Toi, the great ocean of Toi; spans our region, Mai i Ngā Kuri a Whārei ki Tihirau. Toi is both the centre and summit of our endeavours, it affirms our worldview and status as tangata whenua. Te Toi Ahorangi acknowledges the spiritual threads that connect us to Ranginui and Papatūānuku, to the beginning of the world and to all things. These sacred threads weave our past, present and future as one. They are our connection to the pathway of all time.
