Christchurch, New Zealand

Logo of the Matapopore Charitable TrustThe principal Ngāi Tūāhuriri value for the Christchurch anchor projects is: Kia atawhai ki te iwi – Be kind to your people. This founding kaupapa, recounted by Pita Te Hori, first Upoko Rūnanga of Ngāi Tūāhuriri in 1861, reiterates the foundations laid by Tūāhuriri, the ancestor after which the hapū of Ngāi Tūāhuriri takes its name. Ngāi Tūāhuriri today believes the anchor projects and all projects associated with the recovery of Christchurch must demonstrate care for the citizens of the city and encourage warmth and a sense of welcome.
