2.4 RŪNANGA CODE OF ETHICS AND PROPER PRACTICE
Te Rūnanga-ā-Iwi o Ngāti Kahu, and by delegation the Ngati Kahu Corporate, will act ethically in all areas of its responsibilities and authority. In so doing it binds its staff and constituency to the same principles and practices.
This is an important message from Haititaimarangai Marae.
Due to the continued desecration of our Wahi Tapu (sacred areas), archaeological sites and dune vegetation, Te Whanau Moana me te Rorohuri Hapu ask that you please respect and support this kaupapa: ALL MOTORISED VEHICLES TO STAY OUT OF THE SAND DUNES OF TOKERAU BEACH AND PUWHEKE.
Signage will be erected at key points to bring this message out to the community.
It is hoped that visitors and residents alike will respect this request.
This kaupapa is also supported by Te Runanga-a-Iwi o Ngati Kahu
