Recognising Mana Whenua
Aratu Forests Limited recognises the rights of mana whenua and believes in the role of kaitiakitanga of the whenua as fundamental to the wellbeing of both land and mana whenua alike. We strive to support this important relationship.
We maintain active lines of communication with iwi representatives from Te Tairawhiti and we look forward to continuing to develop a relationship nurtured through honesty, openness and trust.
We believe our common aspirations to respect the whenua and to ensure local prosperity will lead to an exciting future.
