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 the southern end of Ngā One Haea Pakiri Beach from Friday 18 September 2020 and will be lifted at sunrise on Monday 21 September 2020.

What does this mean for you?
A rāhui (a physical and spiritual mechanism) sets a temporary prohibition around the rāhui area and limits access for that period in order to acknowledge the death of this taonga species.
Behind the Scenes
