Profile (April 2019)

I am the son of Patrick and Christine Hape. I was born in Taniwaka. I come from a very close family who pride ourselves on being an ahi kā whānau. I am a member of the Kaitoke urupa committee and the in the past I was a Board member of the Kaitoke marae. 

From mowing lawns at the urupa to supporting the whānau in times of need, the commitment to Ngāti Kahungunu is not a 9 to 5 job. Working for your iwi hapū, whānau is a 24 hour, 7 day a week commitment. I am a current Trustee on the Ngāti Kahungunu ki Wairarapa Tāmaki nui-a-Rua Settlement Trust. I am also privileged to have been a Treaty Negotiator for the past four years. I have been a Board member on the Iwi Board for the past 10 years and I am also a Director on the Kahungunu Asset Holding Company. These roles have strengthened my understanding of our history and whakapapa. I take my responsibilities very seriously. I have always approached my mahi with passion and determination. 

Kahungunu ki Tāmaki nui-a-Rua has been working our way forward with a new vision for our rohe, “To have a thriving community with strong and trusted leadership, building a better future for Kahungunu people, all Māori, all iwi and all people in the Tāmaki Nui a Rua Rohe.
