Launching Te Korowai o Tangaroa – our kāhui magazine

6 August 2021

Te Ohu Kaimoana is excited to announce the launch of our quarterly kāhui magazine, Te Korowai o Tangaroa.

The name Te Korowai o Tangaroa (the feathered cloak of Tangaroa) was gifted by our director Selwyn Parata (Ngāti Porou). It represents the entities of Te Ohu Kai Moana Group serving as protectors of Tangaroa and his realm, a responsibility entrusted to our entities through whakapapa, Te Tiriti o Waitangi, the Māori Fisheries Settlement (Deed of Settlement), and the Māori Fisheries Act 2004.

In each edition you’ll read stories from iwi, hapū, marae, and whānau on their connection to fisheries and the moana, and hear about the work they are doing in their rohe for the betterment of Tangaroa’s domain. We’ll showcase our work, value, and people, as well as ngā whānau o Te Ohu Kaimoana, Te Wai Māori Trust (the Māori freshwater fisheries trust), Te Pūtea Whakatupu Trust (Māori education and training trust), Moana New Zealand, and Sealord Group Ltd. You’ll also read thought provoking and challenging whakaaro from Māori leaders, fishers, experts in mātauranga Māori, and business leaders on a range of varying kaupapa in issues to come.

Our vision for Te Korowai o Tangaroa is to document the history, whakaaro and stories of our people – the hard stories and the good. It will serve as a permanent record and reminder of those who have paved the way for us so far, and shine a light on those who will lead us in the marine space now and into the future.
