3.      RANGITAIKI RIVER FORUM

3.1     Ngati Awa agreed in principle to participate in the Rangitaiki River forum to develop a
        river management framework through Ngati Whare and Ngati Manawa’s settlement
        legislation, subject to final agreement by the Runanga. Ngati Awa was not involved in

3.2     Draft legislation has now been received. The Office of Treaty Settlements process did
        not provide sufficient consultation and the Runanga did not have adequate opportunity
        to contribute to drafts. The legislation does not include reference to our existing
        statutory acknowledgements or the impact of the proposal on those instruments.

3.3     The CEO will prepare a formal submission to the Select Committee process highlighting
        these and other issues (including the status of existing statutory acknowledgements).

4.      MEETING WITH PATUWAI

4.1     A large contingent of koroua and kuia from Te Patuwai met with the Runanga on 7
        October 2010 to request assistance in relation to issues they are having on Motiti and
        with the Internal Affairs Department (IAD). Beverley Hughes, Manager Environment
        Ngati Awa has arranged a meeting with IAD senior managers next month in
        Whakatane. The Rūnanga acknowledged the continuing role of the Patuwai Tribal
        Authority as a mandated voice for the hapu.

5.      WIRELESS NETWORK

5.1     The network has been extended to link Te Tohu o te Ora o Ngati Awa and Trident High
        School. Extensions to Ohope, Edgecumbe and Kawerau are being scoped. Access to
        the network for Wairaka residents will be followed up.

5.2     Te Tohu o Te Ora o Ngāti Awa praised the quality and cost effectiveness of the service,
        the skill of the technicians and management of the business. Transition to the new
        service was effected without disruption to operations.

6.      MEETINGS AND WORKSHOPS

6.1     An induction workshop for new representatives will be held on Friday 3 December 2010
        commencing 9am at the Rūnanga conference room.




                                                                                                  2
6.2     A financial workshop for current and new representatives will be held in the afternoon
        of the November Rūnanga meeting on Friday 26th.

6.3     The NA Group Holdings Ltd AGM will follow the TRONA AGM on Sunday 28 November
        2010 at Kōkōhinau Marae.

6.4     The final Rūnanga meeting will be on Friday 10 December followed by the annual Board
        and staff Christmas party.

6.5     A day trip for Representatives to Moutohora will be arranged in the new year.

7.      MATAATUA WHARENUI UPDATE

7.1     Marra Construction of Tauranga has been selected as the main contractor for the
        Wharenui complex. There is a requirement for 25% of the workforce to be Ngāti Awa
        uri.

7.2     Some design changes are required to meet noise control aspects of the two supporting
        buildings. The louvre windows running along the top of each wall need to be replaced
        with solid glass. This will affect the natural airflow and will probably require integration
        of air conditioning into the building.

8.      ‘KO NGATI AWA TE TOKI’ FILM HONOURED IN LOS ANGELES

8.1     Ko Ngati Awa Te Toki film was commissioned by the Runanga and made by Wellington
        media specialists Momentum Studios and captures the vision and aspirations of Ngati
        Awa. The film has been awarded gold at the prestigious W3 Awards held mid October
        in Los Angeles. The film took out the top prize in the ‘Web Video – Non Profit’ section.
        Congratulations were extended to the CEO, Edwina Merito and the team for the
        achievement.

9.      FISHERIES

9.1     NA Group Holdings has been working with an iwi collective to look at ways to manage
        the quota resource. A multi-year agreement with the Iwi Collective Partnership (ICP)
        has been formalised by way of a limited partnership structure.

10.     FORESTRY

10.1    The registration of our forests to the government’s Emissions Trading Scheme is near
        completion. The application documentation to receive the first instalment of carbon
        credits was presented for Rūnanga approval and subsequent execution.

11.     TENDER FOR REMOVAL OF HOUSE AT 4 TOROA STREET

11.1    Registration of interest was received from Ngāti Hokopu ki Wairaka, Hokowhitu and
        Wharepaia who requested the Rūnanga relocate the house across the road to a vacant
        section. The Executive Committee approved the relocation on a temporary basis until
        NAGHL has made a decision on the future development of the properties.
