Tamarind is pleased to announce that we have signed a relationship agreement with Te Korowai o Ngāruahine Trust.
Ngāruahine is one of the eight iwi in Taranaki and its rohe is located between Taranaki Iwi to the west and Ngāti Ruanui to the east. The Tasman Sea is of particular significance to Ngāruahine, as historically it provided a means of navigation, a mechanism by which trade was conducted and particularly, sustenance by way of the food (mataitai/shellfish) contained within it.
Tamarind respects Te Korowai’s kaitiakitanga approach and is committed to working together with Te Korowai to enable ongoing information sharing and mutual education on matters relating to Tamarind’s activities and Te Korowai’s interests in the ocean and coastal marine area within its rohe.

We look forward to further building our relationship with Te Korowai o Ngāruahine Trust and to finding ways that we can support their mission to be a healthy, wealthy and culturally vibrant iwi.
