As members of our packrafting community will be aware of, and appreciate, that Te Urewera is currently in a period of change.
Ruatahuna and Ruatoria hapu are keen to host manuhiri, but have asked for the information on the Whakatane River trip to not be in such a public place for the time being while we all spend a bit more time getting to know each other. If you are interested in doing this trip, please contact Ngāi Tūhoe on +64 6 837 3803 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for information.
If you wish to korero about this, you can also contact your Federated Mountain Clubs Representative on this matter, on email@example.com. FMC is actively working alongside Ngāi Tūhoe and we appreciate your patience, and your desire to understand the current situation fully.
