Whaka Ora Healthy Harbour partner representatives at their September 2022 hui overseeing the handover of the Whaka Ora korowai from Christchurch City Council to Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu. The Whaka Ora Catchment Plan enables the Whakaraupō communities to weave a korowai that will protect and support this special place to thrive and grow in the future.
“The Whaka-Ora Healthy Harbour plan sets a way forward for the community to ensure the ecological and cultural health of Whakaraupō/Lyttelton Harbour as mahinga kai is restored for us and our children after us.”
