About the Region

Rohe Delegate/Rohe Chairman

Rohe Committee:

Maui Tangohau

Tairāwhiti Cultural Development Trust Inc

Te Tairawhiti under the mantle of ‘Tamararo’ host annual kapa haka competitions for Senior, Junior and Primary roopu. 2016 is the 64th consecutive year of competition and I quote from Archbishop Brown Turei who at 92 is the only surviving member of the Tamararo committee:

 “we started this kaupapa over 60 years ago with Bill Kerekere. It was started to fundraise for the Mihingare Pariha”

"Tairawhiti, he aha a ko atu".

Responsibility to your rohe:

The trustees of the Tairāwhiti Cultural Development Trust Inc. are appointed to foster, develop, and protect the traditional Māori performing arts in the pursuit of excellence.

Rohe boundaries:

The Tairāwhiti boundary extends from the Mohaka River in the south to Potikirua in the north.
