It is with great pleasure that we share our new website with our Rangitāne o Manawatū whānui and in particular those living outside the rohe. The website will allow all whānau to stay in touch with Rangitāne o Manawatū Settlement Trust activities in real time.

Thus we welcome any feedback to help us improve your browsing experience or about other opportunities you would like to share via the website. We are committed to adding value to best serve our whānau.

Now that the Treaty Settlement is concluded and the prayers of our ancestors were answered through our settlement we are going through a period of infrastructure development for the Settlement Trust. The Trusts sole purpose was to receive the settlement which now received, its focus is on manging and implementing the settlement. Thus our focus has been somewhat internal over the last while. However we have set out the Strategic and Annual Plans of the Trusts work programmes which was borne out of hui with whānau.

So enjoy surfing the website and please fill out a beneficiary form, complete it and send it to us so we can add you and your whānau to our database so we can share more with you all.
