Our People

"Ehara taku toa he toa takitahi, ēngari he toa takitini"

"My success should not be bestowed onto me alone, as it was not individual success

but the success of a collective"



The trustees of Anamata are a collective of people who share vast experience and expertise in community and educational development. Their participation in local iwi and hapu activities strengthens their commitment to the very ideals shared as Trustees. They provide leadership to ensure the direction and strategies adopted are aligned with the needs of Ngāi Tūhoe.
