The Rangiaowhia Historic Trust was created as an operational group, which initiated the Rangiaowhia 150th Commemoration day.
(This trust is not administered by ARTB but does come under our umbrella for support.)
This entailed researching Crown lands available to Ngati Apakura and the history behind it, working with the Waipa District Council, Ngapai O Maumahara Tainui group, kaumatua, local marae within the district, farmers, local schools and the community.
Future goals are envisaged as placement of papakainga, which will include education, health and history for Ngati Apakura.
This is all to be ratified by iwi through wananga and hui to be advertised.

Chairperson : Jenny Charman
Secretary/Treasurer : Faye Onehi
