We are the Pouakani Charitable Trust, an organisation | whakahaerenga that has been formed to bring together the blood-line descendants of the Pouakani Block.
Our aim | kaupapa is to work together as one to establish a community and wider family | whanau that our members are proud to be a part of – and we welcome you to find about more about who we are, and what we do.
The Pouakani Trust collaboratively involves its members and Trustees in a way that provides direct access to the benefits | āwhina available to those who are ancestors of the original owners of Pouakani Block. It is important to us that we communicate with our people in a way that is transparent and easy to understand | ngāwari ki te matau.
Please enjoy exploring our website that has been created to help more people understand the role of The Pouakani Trust, and how you can get involved.
