Ngāti Kuri Electorate
Ko Ngāti Kuri te iwi
Ko Maunga Piko te maunga
Ko Pārengarenga te moana
Ko Te Reo Mihi te marae
Tënā tātou katoa.
I am the son of Whiti and Kaa Maaka and live in Te Hāpua. Currently I own a small business, and am doing the best that I can to bring employment back into our community for the Ngāti Kuri people.
In the early 90s I worked on the Te Paki farm for a short period of time, and I worked with the Department of Conservation for approximately 7 years before becoming a contractor.
I am on the Te Reo Mihi Marae, and I am the current chairman for the Muriwhenua Pig Hunting Club. Over the years I have done a lot of work on our land, so I have gained significant knowledge about our whenua.
