Who are we?
The Te Tatau o Te Arawa Board was established in December 2015 marking a significant achievement for Rotorua and Aotearoa | New Zealand.
For more than 20 years, Te Arawa and the Rotorua Lakes Council had attempted to strengthen trust and build an enduring relationship between each other.
At the same time a deep desire to develop appropriate Te Arawa input into Council decision-making had been quietly simmering under the surface. Following a robust 18 month process, the Rotorua community celebrated the inauguration of the Te Tatau o Te Arawa Board and signed a partnership agreement between Te Arawa and Rotorua Lakes Council in December, 2015.
The agreement embodies the intention of Te Arawa and Rotorua Lakes Council to establish an enduring partnership which creates a future that benefits the community as a whole.
