Ngāti Kahungunu (Wairoa Taiwhenua) Inc.

 

About the Taiwhenua:

The Wairoa Taiwhenua building is based on Bridge Street, Wairoa. It is situated directly to the left after crossing the bridge over Te Wairoa-hōpūpū-hōnengenenge-matangi-rau River. Wairoa is a beautiful country town only minutes away from the most northern coastline of Kahungunu. He ao te rangi ka uhia, mā te huruhuru te manu ka rere. The sky needs clouds to clothe it. Birds need feathers to fly. Wairoa Taiwhenua is continually looking at opportunities to host an array of activities, hui and events ranging from history, research, whakapapa, land issues and social service issues to enhance the wellbeing of Kahungunu ki Te Wairoa whānau and hapū.
