Iwi Capability

Te Pou Here

The term “Te Pou Here” refers to the mooring post and stems from “te pou here takata, te pou here tikaka” – the post that ties the people and the customs together.
Te Pou Here creates a central place where our people can chose to connect, network and unite.


It is about connecting and belonging as Ngāi Tahu

Te Pou Here as a tool will enable us to keep you engaged with the iwi and ensure that you have access to information about professional and cultural development, employment and business opportunities available across the Ngāi Tahu businesses owned at a tribal level.
This is a new initiative that will evolve over time. We are open to your feedback at any stage of the process.

We are embarking on a new approach that will continue to evolve. The first stage of the initiative is to identify who our people are and to create a platform where we can engage. We anticipate that as a new initiative there will be areas that require further development and will continue to seek your feedback as the initiative develops so that we best serve our people and their aspirations.
