Ngāti Manuhiri exercise Mana Motuhake over taonga and rohe
Tuia ki te rangi, Tuia ki te papa
Tuia ki te moana, Tuia tātou
E rongo te pō, E rongo te ao
Haumi e, Hui e, Tāiki e!
The Ngāti Manuhiri Settlement Trust, Mana Whenua ō Tāmaki, have placed a rāhui at Motukauri Lagoon Bay/Scott's landing from Monday 24 August 2020 and will be lifted at sunrise on Thursday 27 August 2020.
What does this mean for you?
A rāhui (a physical and spiritual mechanism) sets a temporary prohibition around the rāhui area in order to acknowledge the death and to express our sympathy to the whānau of the deceased. It provides time for tapu sacredness to dissipate following the death allowing time for healing and recovery of the natural elements at place as well as people; in particular the grieving whānau.
To show respect all fisherman and shellfish gatherers in the area are asked to consider using alternative areas during the rāhui.
The Ngāti Manuhiri Settlement Trust thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.
