CHAIRMAN’S REPORT
Ngati Porou, puta noa nga rohenga o Aotearoa me te Ao, tena koutou, tena hoki tatau katoa.
Tangihia o tatau mate kua wehe atu nei i a tatau mai i te orokohanga mai o te wa, taka mai hoki ki wenei wa. Heoi e

The Annual Report will detail the activities and programmes which the runanga
has focused on for the past year. My report highlights developments with which
the runanga has been intimately involved for the past 19 years. I take this reflective
approach lest we forget the runanga’s facilitative role in the formative years of a
                                                                                                                                Board of Trustees chairman

FISHERIES
Te Ohu Kaimoana (TOKM) representatives were guests at a function held at
Uepohatu Marae earlier this year to celebrate the allocation of Ngati Porou’s
fisheries assets. The fisheries debate has been a long drawn-out saga with which
the runanga has been involved since 1989, before the signing of
the 1992 Sealord deal.
Over the years, runanga trustees, managers and Ngati Porou marae
and hapu representatives have attended numerous meetings
including hui a iwi at home and with other iwi, TOKM, Crown
officials and ministers. The Waitangi Tribunal became involved for
a time and legal actions were played out in the High Court, Court
of Appeal and twice in the Privy Council in London. The runanga
went to court to ensure the rights of iwi and Ngati Porou specifically
were protected and not subjugated under the generic rights of
Maori, and to ensure the definition of ‘iwi’ was not compromised
or re-defined to meet an ‘urban authority’ agenda.
I thank the runanga for the enormous financial support it gave to
this process and all the Ngati Porou people who were our faces at
                                                                                                                      Te Ohu Kaimoana and Aotearoa Fisheries Ltd directors
many of these forums. They included the late Anaru (Skip) Paenga, Honore Chesley                                      at the official handover ceremony of Ngati Porou
and Waho Tibble who gave their tireless support throughout this 17 year struggle                                      fisheries assets at Uepohatu.
to secure Ngati Porou’s share of the fisheries assets.
Ngati Porou Seafoods Ltd (NPSL) holds the quota and shares in Aotearoa Fisheries
Ltd and is responsible for growing and managing the fisheries assets. The runanga
and Porou Ariki Trust – the Mandated Iwi Organisation – are responsible for investing
the return on those assets in activities which benefit current and future generations
of Ngati Porou. The Porou Ariki Trust is also responsible for strategic governance
oversight, legislative compliance and reporting to Ngati Porou.
Mark Ngata is the new general manager of Ngati Porou Fisheries Ltd and NPSL. For
efficiency, NPFL directors were appointed interim directors of NPSL.
I acknowledge the board of Ngati Porou Fisheries Ltd for its good performance in
growing the asset base of the runanga’s 100%-owned fisheries company NPFL and
for preparing the way for NPSL’s establishment.

TE RUNANGA O NGATI POROU ANNUAL REPORT 2006
FORESHORE & SEABED (FSSB)
Our involvement with the FSSB began in August 2003 in the lead-up to the
inaugural consultation hui on the Government’s Foreshore & Seabed proposal, held
at Whangara. In keeping with the sentiments and submissions presented at the hui,
the runanga convened a Ngati Porou Marae and Hapu Takutaimoana working party
and began informal discussions with the Crown. Early in 2004 we were joined by
our relations Te Whanau a Apanui, and formal negotiations began several months
later. Our original objective was to secure and protect the takutaimoana rights
                                                                                                       Robert McLeod, speaks at a Ngati Porou fisheries
of Ngati Porou whanau and hapu, who would have been able to demonstrate
                                                                                                       allocation meeting.
their ‘legal’ and ‘customary’ ownership interest in their foreshore and seabed. Our
position throughout initial discussions and following negotiations was that any Act
to remove ownership of the FSSB from Ngati Porou whanau and hapu would be
seen as an act of raupatu.
Our position has not changed with the passing of the Foreshore & Seabed Act in
November 2004, except that the requirement to substantiate our assertions has
become more onerous in terms of time, effort and cost. However, we are not easily
daunted. We remain true to our belief that Ngati Porou whanau and hapu have
rights and interests in the takutaimoana that pre-date the Treaty. These rights and
interests would have been recognised in common law, are recognised in our lore
and are enduring, irrespective of the legislation.
A critical part of the negotiations has been information sharing and consultation
with whanau and hapu. This included 17 hui with hapu and taura here groups to
confirm the mandate for continuing negotiations with the Crown and to support the
ongoing facilitation role of the runanga. It was agreed the runanga would continue
to update and engage whanau and hapu in ongoing discussions throughout the
negotiation process. A number of researchers were appointed to assist whanau
and hapu bring together their stories, history and evidence in respect to their
takutaimoana. Evidence collected to date includes written records and audio and
visual recordings. Unfortunately some of our key spokespeople have passed on
including Honore Chesley, Manahou Moana, Mack Henare and others.
Crown officials met whanau and hapu at Wharekahika, Te Araroa, Horoera,
Rangitukia, Tikapa, Tuparoa, Whareponga, Waipiro, Tokomaru, Anaura, Kaiaua, Puatai
and Whangara. Negotiations are progressing well and I am optimistic of a positive
outcome within the next six months.                                                                    Part of the foreshore at Whangara.
The following results were recorded from the mandating hui held in December
2005 and January 2006.

WAI 262
After eight years’ dormancy, the Flora and Fauna Claim WAI 262 was reactivated
with urgency and a lot of interest and posturing by parties that had stood on the
sidelines when the claim was first lodged. The WAI 262 Tribunal is now chaired by
Chief Maori Land Court Judge Joe Williams who has broadened the claim’s scope
to include iwi intellectual property rights and interests in traditional arts and music,
matauranga a iwi and te reo Maori.
Ngati Porou became involved in WAI 262 through the efforts of the late Ngati Porou
film-maker, and one of six original claimants, Tame Poata (Te Whanau-a-Ruataupare).        Gina Rudland - Legal counsel for Ngati Porou Wai 262

claim on behalf of Ngati Porou. Hearings at Tokomaru Bay and Wellington this year
provided Ngati Porou with a final opportunity to present evidence.
I acknowledge all the Ngati Porou people who gave evidence during the hearings,
to Gina Rudland our legal counsel, Professor Tamati Reedy for his translations and
to all our host marae and whanau. An important lesson from the Waitangi Tribunal
claims process is the limited control over timelines, the scope of claims and the
introduction of ‘new’ claimants. This insight should guide and prepare us for the
Ngati Porou Treaty Claims, the next long haul in Waitangi tribunal proceedings.
                                                                                           Pakirikiri Marae, Tokomaru Bay was the venue for the

A claim for Te Reo ake o Ngati Porou has been made in both the WAI 262 and WAI 272
claims registered with the Waitangi Tribunal. We are currently pursuing resources to
enable native speakers of Te Reo ake o Ngati Porou to meet on a regular basis to
discuss words and idioms unique to our iwi. Resources will enable us to engage
administrative support to record our hui and discussions on te reo. This position is
critical to the overall success of the project. Much voluntary work has and continues
to be done in this area by Mrs Ethel McPherson. Our aims are to:
1 protect and promote Te Reo ake o Ngati Porou
2 reduce and eliminate the use and impact of “alien reo” introduced by external
  bodies including the Maori Language Commission
3 produce and distribute our own reo publications
4 strengthen and sustain the quality of Ngati Porou reo within schools in our rohe
  and those with large numbers of Ngati Porou students
5 develop Te Reo ake o Ngati Porou wananga and other professional development

TE RUNANGA O NGATI POROU ANNUAL REPORT 2006
RUNANGA BIRTHDAY AND NGATI POROU PAKEKE CELEBRATION
The dual celebration of the Runanga Birthday and Ngati Porou Pakeke Celebration
– held at Rahui Marae in 2005 and Iritekura in 2006 – continues to draw crowds
of Ngati Porou from home, New Zealand and abroad. As I reflect on the level of
support, I am reminded of the whakatauaki:
He kino tokomaha ki te kainga a kai, tena ki a tu ki te kaupapa iwi, ka aha hoki!
The feeding of many is an enormous undertaking, but in iwi matters, numbers tell.
Since these 1 September celebrations, I have fielded many calls and received            Alma Whangaparita talks with ACC rep Faye Pohatu.
letters of support for the runanga and praise for the occasion. I wish to express our
appreciation and gratitude to the Waipiro Bay whanau and hapu for hosting this
event and runanga staff for the tremendous support for this kaupapa.

NGATI POROU WHANUI FORESTS LTD
This company has a special and unique place in the history of forestry developments.
The runanga was instrumental in the establishment of Ngati Porou Forests Ltd and
the shareholders were Ngati Porou land owners who made their lands available for
the planting of, what we now refer to as, the pioneer forest blocks. After the Crown
sold the State Forests, causing huge redundancies among our people, funding was
acquired from the Board of Maori Affairs to develop forestry within Ngati Porou.
Then runanga secretary Ned Ihaka, Koro Dewes and I made a submission to Maori
Affairs for $10m. With the $4.9m received, the first stage of forestry under Ngati
Porou control began.
Former prime minister Jim Bolger and the late John Falloon were supporters of the
project despite opposition in some political quarters and from environmentalists.
It became clear that finding a partner would be problematic because of an “accord”
signed by forestry companies and the Crown. Whaimutu Dewes was tasked with
finding a partner for the company and eventually found a Korean company with
which to form the Hansol Ngati Porou Joint Venture.
Since those heady days, Ngati Porou Forests Ltd has broadened its base to become
Ngati Porou Whanui Forests Ltd and, under the stewardship of its Board of Directors
led by Whaimutu and CEO Chris Insley, has taken huge strides forward. Chris
Insley has introduced many new and innovative aspects such as the formation
of a Forestry Science Board comprising scientists from Lincoln, Canterbury and
Waikato Universities and Niwa. The Forestry Science Board is overseeing a range
of research and development initiatives                                                 A futuristic view of wood processing on the East Coast.
in land use mapping technologies,
composite wood products and alternate
uses of wood. NPWFL is investigating a
range of opportunities arising through
carbon credits including carbon farming
and a new joint venture arrangement.
The future for Ngati Porou forestry looks
promising with various employment
opportunities emerging for our people
and projected financial returns to the
Ngati Porou land owners who have forest
lots planted on their land. This injection of
capital and the investments in growth and
innovation bode well for the re-emerging
Ngati Porou economy.
NGATI POROU HAUORA
Every time I go to the Puhi Kaiti Clinic I feel proud of the services that Ngati Porou
Hauora provides to Ngati Porou and non-Ngati Porou people living in Kaiti, Gisborne.
I regularly hear complimentary statements about the services and courteous staff.
Ngati Porou Hauora is growing stronger with the restructuring under chairman Ben
Tahata and the efforts of Terry Ehau through the Ngati Porou CE’s forum.
The runanga and NPH have developed a positive working relationship that has
resulted in joint health initiatives for our people. Through working together we
are able to progress our shared vision for the health and wellbeing of Ngati Porou.
Some way is yet to be travelled to upgrade health facilities and amenities but these
are within our grasp if we work together and leverage off our respective strengths.
A recent television documentary showcasing Ngati Porou Hauora is the kind of
publicity that augurs well for affirming our ability and commitment to providing
quality and relevant health services to our people. Ngati Porou Hauora scholarships
and Nati & Healthy are other initiatives that raise awareness of the effort and work
that the Hauora Board, management and staff are undertaking to significantly
improve the health status and quality of life of Ngati Porou people.

RADIO NGATI POROU
Radio Ngati Porou now broadcasts to the world through internet. Global Natis are
tuning in for their injection of Ngati Porou news, humour and waiata. Having our
own radio station is important because it is one of the most important ways to
keep Ngati Porou informed and connected. The station is also invaluable for the
promotion of our reo, tikanga, and local and iwi-specific news. Since its birth, the
station has recorded many iwi events and personalities, thereby contributing to
the collection of archival resources, audio and visual recordings, manuscripts and
files. This prompts the need for a timely discussion on the establishment of an
appropriate, Ngati Porou archive facility.
The board, management and staff must be thanked for their initiative in taking the
voices of Ngati Porou into the global arena, while being responsive to the every day
needs of Ngati Porou kei te kaenga.

NGA KOHINGA
The bimonthly magazine Nga Kohinga brings together six Ngati Porou organisations
                                                                                          Organisations involved in Nga Kohinga are Te

CONCLUSION
I wish to thank all trustees, particularly the deputy chair, for their contributions to
the growth, development and well-being of our people. To the CEO, management
team and staff, who have done so much to ensure that the aspirations and outcomes
sought by the board were achieved, my sincere gratitude and appreciation.

nominations received and a high level of media interest, sparked by robust debate
in the local and national media. Some candidates, critics of the runanga, stated their
intentions to disestablish the runanga adopting the slogan ‘Whakahokia Mai’.
The 13 trustees who sought re-election confirmed their belief in the runanga’s
vision, their appreciation of its achievements and progress. They also confirmed
their recognition of the runanga’s complementary role working at the iwi level
and the role of hapu and marae working within their own spheres of influence. The

joined their ranks, adding youth, new perspectives and skills and an injection of
energy and enthusiasm, which bodes well for the board for the next three years.

A feature of the new board has been its ability to quickly settle down to business and
focus on the tasks in hand. This can be a challenge for a group of 20 members who
hold strong positions and sometimes opposing views. The constructive approach,
adopted by the overwhelming majority of trustees, and the demonstrable goodwill
they have shown has contributed to an air of optimism and unity. This is refreshing
and vital for the quality of governance leadership we require going forward.
A positive indication of this change was the 100% attendance rate achieved at the
June 2006 board meeting.

Follow-up training discussed the establishment of a Ngati Porou Holdings Company
and possible strategies for increasing the returns on runanga assets and growing
Ngati Porou’s asset base.
Trustees also took part in a number of governance training
opportunities organised for iwi health providers and audit
committees. The commitment to enhancing the governance
capacity and capability of the runanga board is vital for its effective
and cohesive functioning. One also needs to give recognition to the
considerable cultural capital, matauranga Ngati Porou and tikanga
that board members possess and the significant value this provides
to the organisation and Ngati Porou.

Group and Marae Hapu Fisheries Working Party, established Porou Ariki Trust as the
Mandated Iwi Organisation (MIO) for Ngati Porou, thereby facilitating the receipt of
Ngati Porou’s share of the fisheries assets.
The runanga board, as Responsible Trustee, is legally responsible for the Porou
Ariki Trust and ultimately accountable for its performance. However, the board is
committed to sharing the role of strategic governance over Ngati Porou fisheries

assets with the Advisory Trustees, nominated by the seven Ngati Porou Marae
Clusters. The board appreciates the need to work together to achieve the best
results, for Ngati Porou whanau, hapu and marae.
The board is required to report on the financial results of Porou Ariki Trust and Ngati
Porou Seafoods Ltd in its Group accounts for the period ending 30 June 2006. It
does so in the knowledge that Porou Ariki Trust’s Annual General Meeting will be
convened before 31 March 2007, enabling the trust and NPSL to present full reports
in line with the expectations and obligations stated in the Porou Ariki Trust Deed.

VALUATION OF FISHERIES SETTLEMENT ASSETS                                                  Scenes from this year’s Pakeke Day celebrations with

our fisheries companies, the runanga considered a range of factors, opinions and
information provided by its own auditors, Te Ohu Kaimoana Trust, Aotearoa Fisheries
Ltd, Ernst and Young, the Office of the Auditor General and other iwi organisations.
However, the runanga board is ultimately responsible for making a decision. The
board determined to write down the fisheries settlement assets received in March
2006 – specifically the quota and AFL shares – by $6.7 m (prior to initial recognition
in the financial statements). This reduced the value of these assets from $36.1m to
$29.4m. No impairment has been attributed to the cash, which is in a high interest
earning savings account in the name of the Porou Ariki Trust. We accept that this
loss in value will cause concern. However, the decision made by the runanga is
consistent with the decision and views expressed by most iwi who have had to
grapple with this complex situation.
We have also agreed to seek a full valuation report from a qualified and independent
valuer for the Porou Ariki AGM, scheduled for March 2007.

SUMMARY
We are optimistic about the runanga’s future as we begin to establish the appropriate
entities for receiving, protecting, managing and growing the assets finally being
returned to Ngati Porou. This mix of trusts and commercial entities will enable a         Trustee Jean Weke (left) with her mother Lena Paenga

focus, and the runanga’s development initiatives committed to sustaining and
growing our investment in Ngati Porou.
We have confidence in the structures put in place to strengthen our governance
capability, particularly the Audit, Risk and Finance Committee which is making
significant progress with management in returning the runanga to financial viability
and future proofing the organisation in terms of risk mitigation and legislation.
We are pleased with the $306,884 profit made this year. However, the $30.4m rise
in the group’s asset base – brought about by the fisheries settlement and the
increase in the value of Puanga Station – helps put our overall financial position        Handover of Ngati Porou fisheries assets at Uepohatu,
into clearer perspective. More importantly it provides a base from which to grow          May 2006.

INTRODUCTION
The 2005-2006 year presented with a number of organisational challenges, not
least being the restructuring of corporate services, the integration of whanau and
hapu development services and the rationalisation of internal economic activities
in concert with the transfer of assets and management responsibility to runanga
subsidiaries.
Two other significant developments were the long-awaited fisheries settlement,
which provided a timely injection of capital and assets, and the investment in
developing the communication, planning and enterprise capacity of Ngati Porou
hapu and marae. Both developments mark a new phase in the evolution of the
runanga.
The runanga revised its current organisational structure in the lead-up to the new
financial year, establishing a leadership and policy division, and integrating the
Office of Board and CEO back into Corporate Services.
My report highlights the key challenges and opportunities that emerged during
the year, an analysis of the runanga’s achievements against key performance targets
and a preview of the organisation’s future priorities.

REPORT AGAINST KEY PERFORMANCE TARGETS FOR 2005 - 2006
It is pleasing to report that we met most key performance targets for the year and,
with the exception of farming and foreshore and seabed, all activities operated
within budget. Over the past year the runanga:
1 rationalised the costs of corporate services, while enhancing its performance
     and improving overall effectiveness
2 secured and grew new businesses, increasing revenue streams
3 transformed selected runanga economic activities from service-driven
     programmes to commercially-operated, profit-orientated entities
4 established meaningful communication tools that will effect information flows
     to and from our expanding iwi base, and fulfil rigorous ‘mandating’ procedures
     and reporting requirements
5 supported marae and hapu to realise their potential, without compromising the
     financial viability of the organisation or impinging on the ability of marae and
     hapu to be self-determining.

                                                                                                                                                                        13

Investment opportunities that support marae and hapu in progressing their

Apirana Ngata enunciated in the whakatauaki “E Tipu e Rea” which the runanga and

are a dynamic and ever-changing people and that each generation should develop

for survival, while holding fast to their heritage and culture.
With the appointment of an Education Strategy Manager, completion of
complementary work in early childhood and tertiary education and the partnership’s
commitment to working together, we are confident we will build on our success.

IWI SOCIAL SERVICES
Hapu Social Services providers contribute to the wellbeing of whanau and hapu
through the delivery of quality programmes and workshops relevant to needs. With
new funding, local hapu groups will deliver diverse programme content over the
2006/7 year to support ongoing needs.
Iwi Social Services now has a dedicated East Coast budget adviser in Frances Grant,
who services whanau from Potaka to Tokomaru Bay from her base at the Ruatoria
office.
Professional development continued during the year to improve the quality of
service for all whanau. All Whanau and Hapu Development staff had professional
development and training programmes identifed. Six staff completed 18 months                          SWIS workers (from left) Ruira Morice, Maryjane

Car restraints
Five presentations promoting the use of car seats and seat belts were held in the
Ngati Porou region to help increase the number of children being safely transported
in vehicles. Through parent education and greater access to restraints, it is expected
that more whanau will use restraints for their children.
Each presentation outlined choosing, installing and demonstrating use of car seats,
available schemes including the runanga rental programme and statistics on car
seat and seatbelt use in Ruatoria.
Open Forum discussions were held with over 60 people at Tutua Marae, Te Araroa;

TE RUNANGA O NGATI POROU ANNUAL REPORT 2006

 HOUSING

 Getting more Ngati Porou people into well-maintained, healthy and energy-
 efficient homes is the prime focus for the runanga housing division.
 Various strategies are used to effect this aim including supporting whanau
 into homes; providing home maintenance workshops, organising and
 funding home repairs; providing emergency housing; delivering education
 programmes; and facilitating healthy homes initiatives.
 A prime example of the support provided is seen in the case of a caravan-
 dwelling, older beneficiary who became a proud home-owner. The case was
 complex because of the person’s beneficiary status and their desire to build
 a home on land with no water, sewerage or electricity in place. The housing
 coordinator provided support throughout the process – working with a
 local builder to design a home within the client’s range of affordability, and
 successfully negotiating an infrastructure suspensory loan (ISL) with Housing
 NZ. A home loan was approved and a two-bedroom home built.
 Six whanau were provided with emergency accommodation during the year
 while longer term housing solutions were sought. One case included that of
 a solo dad who in his desperation to return home took up residence in an old
 shed which had neither running water nor power. Concerned for the health
 and safety of his two young children, he turned to the runanga which provided
 the emergency accommodation required. A housing coordinator is working
 with Housing NZ to secure more permanent accommodation for the family.
 Education programmes provided include the

 Two projects are under way to make homes within the Gisborne and East
 Coast region healthier and more energy-efficient. The Healthy Homes project
 sponsored by Contact Energy, EECA, Eastland Community Trust, Tairawhiti
 District Health and the Gisborne District Council saw the “retrofitting” of over
 a dozen homes in the Ngati Porou rohe. This retrofitting includes underfloor
 insulation, hot water cylinder wrap, draft exclusion around doors, ceiling
 insulation, polythene moisture barrier and hot water pipe lagging.
 Housing NZ also released a retrofit programme for whanau who purchased
 their home through the Low Deposit Rural Lending Programme and the Rural
 Housing Programme. Registrations of interest were called and assessments
 completed on nearly 50 homes by June 2006 with work to begin in September
 2006.

WHANAU DEVELOPMENT ACTION RESEARCH PROGRAMME
The 2006 work programme for Whanau Development Action Research focused on:
• the development of practical solutions and tools that could be tailored to meet
   the needs of whanau, hapu and marae
• IT training opportunities for marae
• the development of education strategies and Iwi Potential and Hapu Success
   frameworks
• one-on one enterprise advice and business case support.                                 Phase One Whanau Development Action Research, the
 The following summaries highlight the progress across the six interventions.             Haven Tokomaru Bay.

MA WAI RA – CULTURAL AUDIT TOOL
The Ma Wai Ra tool is aimed at helping marae retain and teach the culture specific to
individual marae, whanau or hapu groupings. The easy-to-use toolkit has resources
and templates to help marae develop their whanau profiles, record their cultural and
physical assets, resources, history and stories and rate current and future capacity in
whaikorero, waiata, and karanga. Its use is optional and any information gathered
remains confidential to the marae.
The tool’s name is taken from the waiata Ma Wai Ra e Taurima composed by Henare
Teowai, on the death of Pine Tamahori. The waiata was prophetic in that it posed the
question we now ask, “who will assume responsibility for ensuring our marae stay
alive? Who will ensure Ngati Porou culture and language survives as a vibrant and
unique expression of who we are.
Ma wai ra, e taurima, te marae e waho nei, ma te tika, ma te pono me te aroha e…”

E NATI
Improving communications with whanau and hapu members is the aim of E
Nati. With the internet now the most successful means of keeping in touch with
whanau living outside the district, 18 marae were provided with training on easy-
to-use software that enabled them to set up their own web pages and manage
their own member databases. This year, the runanga funded the development of a
marae website package to keep ongoing costs for website and domain hosting to
a minimum.
Whareponga Marae is using its website to connect with whanau as part of its
fundraising drive to build a new dining room. E-Nati helps bridge the digital divide,
providing a communication pathway for information flows to and from our marae.

WHANAU ENTERPRISE
More Ngati Porou people are expected to be in successful business enterprises
thanks to the Whanau Enterprise scheme which saw 20 whanau, hapu and marae
collectives complete business plans. The groups benefited from practical and
motivational business advice provided by mentors Bryan McKinlay and Don
Hammond. This included business assessments and plans, budgets and cashflow
analysis templates, and aerial photographs and maps of proposed development
sites. Information was also provided on computer disk, enabling easy updating and
sharing.
Each group was able to work at its own speed and within their own resources, skills
and abilities. The guidance was valuable for planning the next step in their business
development. The Whanau Enterprise is an example of whanau, marae and hapu
contributing to the Ngati Porou economy and shaping their own future.

KORERO TUKU IHO
The strong demand for Ngati Porou resources from throughout New Zealand
is helping spark a creative industry within the rohe. Learning centres want Ngati
Porou stories and waiata in a way that is relevant today – through CDs, DVDs and
other modern technology. The Korero Tuku Iho project aims to fulfil that desire
while working to preserve Ngati Porou culture, stories and oral traditions for future
generations.
The project addressed some immediate needs including the production of three
matauranga Ngati Porou resources and Nati-Pages, a register of Ngati Porou artists,
writers, story tellers and producers. The project prepared a business case to support
a creative industry. Ngati Porou East Coast learning centres will this year receive a
book by Materoa Tangaere, a DVD of Ngati Porou waiata and a whakapapa CD.

NGATI POROU LEARNING COMMUNITIES
The runanga set out to develop a strategy to restore the Ngati Porou learning
culture. It soon became apparent that this would need to be locked into an
integrated development strategy, operating at iwi level through a Ngati Porou
Potential Framework and at hapu level through a Hapu Success Model.
The Ngati Porou Hapu Success Model enables hapu to determine their desired
objectives and develop appropriate indicators enabling them to track progress.
The model provides a framework for hapu to identify their current state of wellbeing
and develop and grow their resources, knowledge and authoritative capacity and
capability to make choices about the lives they want to live as Ngati Porou, New
Zealand and global citizens.

education, and the provision of meaningful, relevant and quality early childhood
education were the key objectives identified by Ngati Porou whanau , Kohanga reo
and ECE providers, that needed to be addressed in a Ngati Porou early childhood
education strategy.
Kuini Moehau named the ECE strategy Raparapa- Ririki in recognition of our tipuna

gather his progeny, after his waka had upturned when landing his great fish, te

our approach. The affirmation and inculcation of matauranga Ngati Porou was an
outcome that we were seeking and provided us with the means of achieiving the
outcome.
The team engaged to facilitate the development of the strategy, undertook an
environmental scan of Ngati Porou kohanga reo and ECE institutions, to identify
current participation rates ,the number of Ngati Porou ECE providers, the quality of
ECE provision and the necessary support required by ECE providers. Early childhood
education is recognised as an important part in the Ngati Porou life-long learning
continuum, providing our tamariki with the necessary building blocks for achieving
their learning potential.
INVESTING IN NGATI POROU
The retention, protection, promotion and practice of our ancestral heritage as Ngati
Porou is essential for the wellbeing and survival of Ngati Porou. The Ahi Ka, Iwi
Kainga and kinship links established through whakapapa and expressed through
our whanaungatanga, reo, history, waiata and tikanga forms the basis of our cultural
identity, along with our connection and relationship to the whenua, moana and Te
Ao Turoa. We are fortunate to have a rich cultural heritage to draw on, and a strong
sense of who we are.
He Wiwi Nati no Porourangi he iwi moke no Waiapu, no Whangaokena, no Hikurangi, te wiwi, he nati, he whanoke.
We accept that each hapu and whanau has different ways of expressing this ‘momo,’
reflecting our uniqueness and celebrating our collective consciousness. However,
the changing world has an increasing impact on our ability to retain our Ngati
Poroutanga. Although we have not suffered the level of ‘cultural bruising’ of other
iwi, we are not immune. With more Ngati Porou people born and raised away from
the wa-kainga or leaving home to seek employment and education, we are faced
with the reality of a widely-dispersed iwi trying to balance social, economic and
cultural obligations and responsibilities.                                                                      TRONP staff conference on Hikurangi Maunga with

that would inspire and enable them to find their way home.
The Ngati Porou Annual Events Calendar comprises six events in which thousands
of Natis are now taking part and re-engaging with their marae, hapu and iwi.

Over the past five years the event has alternated between Ruatoria and Uawa
with about 5000 Natis aged from one to 90-plus representing 23 marae. The event
embraces a spirit of fierce but friendly marae rivalry, a celebration of kinship and our
collective responsibility in paying our dues to our marae. The 39 events provide a
range of activities to attract all age groups and levels of fitness and mental agility.

TA APIRANA NGATA MEMORIAL LECTURES –SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER
The Ta Apirana Ngata Memotrial Lectures began in 1983 as a means of re-creating
a wananga opportunity for Ngati Porou that picked up from where the 1944 Rauru
nui a Toi Lectures left off. The naming of the latter lecture series recognises the role
and leadership that Ta Apirana Ngata demonstrated with the establishment of
the inaugural lectures. The unique feature of the lectures is the focus on ‘to tatou
Ngati Poroutanga’. It provides an opportunity to learn about Ngati Porou history,
waiata, tikanga, expressions of spirituality and political organisation and leadership,
without being circumspect.

the crowds with their own variations and adaptations of Tuini Ngawai and Ngoi
Pewhairangi classics. The winners of the original composition for 2006 was Tu te
Manawa Maurea from Manutuke.

TE RUNANGA O NGATI POROU ANNUAL REPORT 2006

NGATI POROU FISHERIES LTD
OVERVIEW
This year has presented many challenges and several notable highlights for Ngati
Porou Fisheries Ltd (NPFL). The challenges arose as the fishing industry continued
to operate within an environment of rationalisation, consolidation, and cooperation
due to the high value of the New Zealand dollar, increasing operational costs
especially fuel costs, environmental concerns over bottom trawling, biosecurity
threats, TACC reductions in key species, and noticeable changes in seasonality for
some key species as a result of major climatic events.
Despite all this, NPFL’s financial result is a solid performance with a profit significantly
higher than budget. Ngati Porou also celebrated a significant milestone this
year with the receipt of the allocation of fisheries assets, the establishment and
mandating of the Porou Ariki Trust and of Ngati Porou Seafoods Ltd as the asset                         General manager Mark Ngata

TE RUNANGA O NGATI POROU ANNUAL REPORT 2006
NPFL tautokos the Minister of Fisheries recent statement about ‘regional solutions
and input for regional problems’. This provides Ngati Porou with a significant
advantage as we are a key stakeholder in the commercial, recreational and
customary groups.
Developing a fisheries management plan that we all have input and management
responsibility for is essential towards successful sustainability. The alternative
– poor management practices, lack of communication and information, working in
different directions – is no longer an option.


RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT
The future sustainability and stability of our fisheries resources and financial
returns will depend significantly on improving our knowledge and understanding
of each marine species and the environment. This includes not only how and when
we harvest or what equipment we use, but also improving our knowledge of the
aquaculture and mari-culture sectors which are increasingly having an impact on
world seafood markets as wild fishery stocks globally continue to decline.

R&D Strategic Plan
NPFL received funding during the year to begin developing its research &
development strategy. This funded a Ngati Porou graduate student to research
the development of a kaimoana-based commercial business. NPFL thanks Lesley
McLeod (BSc.MAppSc) for her contribution towards developing this strategy
which has already had a significant influence on the company’s future direction.
The company wishes Lesley the best with her PhD degree at Victoria University,
Wellington. Kia kaha - kia maia - kia manawanui.

Australian Aquaculture Hikoi
In August 2005, several directors and the general manager visited various South
Australian aquaculture operations to acquire key knowledge and information
towards developing NPFL’s R&D strategy as well as extending networks for future
growth. The farming operations visited included eels, paua (abalone) and fish
(salmon) from the hatchery to the market.
Key points learned from the operators included:
• size does matter – most farms struggle to be profitable at less than 150 tonne per
  year production
• Victoria & South Australia have regulatory frameworks more compatible to
  marine farming (land or sea) than NZ
• development of farms to economic levels takes a lot of capital and requires
  extremely patient shareholders
• strategic relationships, including those with research institutions, are critical.     Eel and abalone farming in South Australia.

THE COMING YEAR & BEYOND
Rationalisation within the fishing industry is likely to continue for the next year at
least. However, every cloud has a silver lining and despite these difficult conditions
Ngati Porou Seafoods Group is positive about the future outlook as numerous
opportunities exist that must be identified and explored.
Ngati Porou Fisheries Ltd will remain separate from the Ngati Porou Seafoods
Group, owned by Porou Ariki Trust. The quota shares will be managed from now
on solely within that group and reporting will be to the whanau and hapu through
the trustee of the Porou Ariki Trust, Te Runanga o Ngati Porou, and the advisory
trustees appointed by the marae.
PAKIHIROA AND PUANGA STATIONS
The establishment of Pakihiroa Farms Ltd at year’s end coupled with unacceptable
farms’ performance made for a year of mixed fortune for Pakihiroa and Puanga
stations. For the past few years, the Pakihiroa committee has recommended
the separation of the farming business from other runanga activities. This
recommendation took effect with operational management of Pakihiroa and
Puanga stations transferring to Pakihiroa Farms Ltd from 1 July 2006. The new Board
of Directors is confident returns will improve as a result. The farm assets, stock and
Puanga farm were transferred to PFL, which pays a lease to the runanga for using         Sheep high up on Pakihiroa
Pakihiroa. The runanga remains a 100 percent shareholder of the new company.

OVERVIEW
With a freehold market value of $1.2m, Puanga was brought into the 2005-06 books
in advance of its sale and transfer to PFL. The benefit of this move was that a net
surplus of $766,917 was recorded instead of what would have been a net operating
loss of $438,083.
This loss reflects the year’s numerous challenges. A change in stock policy from
a 35:65 to a 65:35 sheep to cattle had a negative impact in the short term with
reduced revenue and fewer sheep sales. However, this and other major strategic
decisions are expected to provide long-term benefits.
Other challenges included the unexpected 20 percent slump in lamb prices,
compared to the previous year, and continued poor returns from wool. Challenging
climatic conditions caused damage to the land and contributed to high sheep
losses and high investment in repairs and maintenance. Appropriate decision-
making was impaired by difficulties in accessing timely and reliable information.
Additional costs arose as the committee monitored current farm performance
                                                                                         Pakihiroa Farm manager Regan Poi.
and drove the establishment of PFL as the best option for improving financial
performance and accountability.
The committee acknowledges these challenges and accepts that the Pakihiroa
and Puanga performance, both on and off-farm, was unacceptable for all involved
in the business. Various measures have been put in place to ensure the improved
performance of management and staff and to ensure the business is better able to
manage issues faced during the year.
The challenges also spurred the committee and the runanga to establish PFL
and farm management was transferred on 1 July 2006. This separation of the
runanga’s farming operations will provide greater transparency and performance           Pakihiroa directors around the board table.

TE RUNANGA O NGATI POROU ANNUAL REPORT 2006

Market performance
Lamb
Lamb prices finished the 2005-06 season lower than expected due to the Kiwi dollar
remaining higher for longer than anticipated. The initial outlook of $61.50 a head
was revised to $57. Pakihiroa received an average $55 a head compared to $63 the
previous year (15 percent reduction). However, sales volumes were significantly
down compared to the previous year with almost 2000 fewer sales.
Lamb prices are expected to return to 2005 levels in the coming year.
Cattle
Cattle prices were relatively stable and, subject to exchange rates, the forecast for
the coming year is positive.

Farm development
Pakihiroa continued its investment in the land to address the continual erosion and
conservation requirements. Over $187,000 was spent on East Coast Forest Project
                                                                                         As new tracks evolve, so the forests grow – for
tree planting, conservation fencing, track maintenance and fertiliser application.

While the ECFP funding should encourage completion of tree planting or land
retirement on high risk land, this project has its own challenges and financial risks,
such as the non-recovery of investment.

Supervision and staffing
Lance Rickard (PGG Wrightson Consulting) continued to provide overall farm
supervision and support to staff with day-to-day affairs managed by Regan Poi
at Pakihiroa and Mo Koia at Puanga. The committee appreciates the efforts of
the supervisor and staff and thanks retiring Pakihiroa fencer Pat Boyle for his
contribution.

Expenditure
Expenditure for farming operations was up about $190,000 on previous years. One-
off expenses expected to see benefits in the future include East Coast Forest Project
Planting ($46,000), heifer grazing contract ($66,000), and fencing($30,000).

In line with corporate structure demands, the PFL board has adopted a more
commercial approach to expenditure and investment decisions. It forecasts first-
year earnings before interest and tax of $180,000 with growing returns in future
years. The corporate approach is expected to benefit both its runanga shareholder
and the PFL business.

Te Runanga o Ngati Porou and Group
STATEMENT OF ACCOUNTING POLICIES for the year ended 30 June 2006

1.     REPORTING ENTITY
       The reporting entity is Te Runanga o Ngati Porou. Financial statements presented here are for Te Runanga o Ngati Porou
       and the consolidated financial statements of the Group comprising Te Runanga o Ngati Porou and its subsidiaries.

2.     GENERAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES
       Te Runanga o Ngati Porou operates as a Maori Trust Board in accordance with the Maori Trust Boards Act 1955. The
       financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Maori Trust Boards Act 1955 and
       the Financial Reporting Act 1993. The general accounting policies recognised as appropriate for the measurement
       and reporting of earnings and financial position on a historical basis are followed, except for Pakihiroa Station which is
       included at valuation at purchase date and livestock which are valued at current market values. The reporting currency
       is New Zealand dollars. Reliance is placed on the fact that Te Runanga o Ngati Porou is a going concern.

3.     SPECIFIC ACCOUNTING POLICIES
       The specific accounting policies used in the preparation of the financial statements are as follows:
       Consolidated Financial Statements
       The consolidated financial statements comprise Te Runanga o Ngati Porou (the “parent”), its subsidiaries and other
       controlled entities where Te Runanga o Ngati Porou meets the control tests of FRS 37: Consolidating Investments in
       Subsidiaries (the “group”).
       Consolidation of Subsidiary and Other Entities
       Subsidiaries and other entities are those entities controlled by Te Runanga o Ngati Porou. The group financial statements
       incorporate the financial statements of the parent and its subsidiaries and other entities, which have been consolidated
       using the purchase method. The results of any subsidiaries that become or cease to be part of the group during the year
       are consolidated from the date that control commenced or until the date that control ceased.
       All inter-entity transactions, balances and unrealised gains are eliminated on consolidation.
       Revenue Recognition
       Government grants are recognised as revenue when eligibility for grants has been established by the grantor agency.
       Fishing Quota income is recognised when cash is received or receivable for the lease of quota irrespective of the fishing
       season to which it relates. Interest is recognised as accrued. Other income is recognised when goods or services are
       provided.
       Property, Plant and Equipment
       Property, plant and equipment are recorded at cost less accumulated depreciation except Pakihiroa Station which is
       included at the valuation at the date of settlement. It is not the policy of Te Runanga o Ngati Porou to revalue this farm
       as there are restrictions to the title of the land. The land and buildings were recorded at net current values as at 30 June
       1993 by an independent registered valuer, Andrew Warren and Associates. Subsequent additions to the station have
       been recorded at cost. All assets except land and the woodlot have been depreciated.
       Depreciation
       For accounting purposes, depreciation is calculated on a diminishing value basis, which will write off the cost or
       revaluation of the assets evenly over their expected useful lives. The following rates have been applied:
       Buildings                  2.5% - 4%                 Motor Vehicles            8% - 26%
       Building Improvements 12% - 33%                      Plant and Machinery       3% - 50%
       Office Equipment                                     Furniture and Fittings 3% - 40%
       - Computer Equipment 33% - 40%
       - Other Equipment         10% - 40%
       Accounts Receivable
       Accounts receivable are valued at net realisable value.
       Investments
       Investments are valued at the lower of cost or net realisable value.
Te Runanga o Ngati Porou and Group
STATEMENT OF ACCOUNTING POLICIES for the year ended 30 June 2006

      Livestock
      Livestock is valued at estimated market values as at 30 June 2006 by an independent registered valuer, Williams & Kettle
      Ltd, Ruatoria. Changes in value of existing productive livestock are recorded as a holding gain or loss and are recorded
      in the Statement of Financial Performance.
      Fishing quota
      Fish quota has been recorded at fair value on recognition. Fair value has been determined by the trustees based on the
      “income-earning potential” of the quota using the Discounted Cash Flow approach.
      Fish quota will not be depreciated but will be reviewed annually by the trustees for Impairment.
      Investment in Aotearoa Fisheries Limited (AFL) Income Shares
      Investment in Aotearoa Fisheries Limited (AFL) Shares has been recorded at fair value on recognition. Fair value has
      been determined by the trustees in accordance with FRS-36 (Accounting for Acquisitions Resulting in Combinations of
      Entities or Operations) using a Net Tangible Asset backing methodology taking into account the restrictions over the
      shares including lack of control, voting rights and liquidity. The investment in AFL shares will be reviewed annually by
      the trustees for Impairment.
      Mana Loan Portfolio
      Mana loans are stated at expected realisable value after allowance for doubtful debts.
      Dividends
      Dividends are recognised in the financial year in which they are authorised and approved by the Board of Directors of
      the subsidiary entities.
       Statement of Cash Flows
       The Statement of Cash Flows has been prepared exclusive of GST, which is consistent with the method used in the
       Statement of Financial Performance.
       The following definitions have been used for the preparation of the Statement of Cash Flows:
       (i) Cash includes coins, notes, demand deposits or highly liquid investments for which there is a recognised ready
             market and which are unconditionally convertible to coins and notes at the board’s option within no more than
             two working days and which the board regards as part of its day-to-day cash management.
       (ii) Operating Activities include all transactions and other events that are not investing or financing activities.
       (iii) Investing Activities are those activities relating to the acquisition, holding and disposal of fixed assets and of
             investments such as securities, not falling within the definition of cash.
       (iv) Financing Activities are those activities which result in changes in the size and composition of the capital structure
             of the board, both equity and debt not falling within the definition of cash.
       Taxation
       Te Runanga o Ngati Porou and Group (as a Charitable Organisation) is exempt from Income Tax.
      Goods and Services Tax
      The financial statements have been prepared stating all income and expenditure items exclusive of GST, except
      accounts receivable and accounts payable which are GST inclusive.
      Finance Leases
      Leases under which Te Runanga o Ngati Porou and Group assume substantially all the risks and rewards of ownership
      are classified as finance leases and are capitalised. The finance charge is allocated to periods during the lease term so
      as to produce a constant period rate of interest on the outstanding balance of the liability for each period.
      Operating Leases
      Operating lease rentals are recognised evenly over the expected period of benefit to Te Runanga o Ngati Porou and
      Group.
      Comparative Figures
      Comparative information has been reclassified, where necessary, to achieve consistency in disclosure with the current year.

4.     CHANGES IN ACCOUNTING POLICIES
      Fishing quota and Investment in AFL shares.
      These assets are new this year as a result of the TOKM fishing allocation. As a result Te Runanga o Ngati Porou
      has implemented new accounting policies (refer above). There have been no other changes in accounting
      policies. All accounting policies have been applied on bases consistent with the previous year.                        41

       Holding Gain
       The farm livestock holding gain of $274 (2005: $1,657) represents the movement in market livestock values (Pakihiroa
       and Puanga Stations) from one year to the next.

       Market Values
       Sheep and cattle on Pakihiroa and Puanga Stations were independently valued by Williams & Kettle Ltd (Ruatoria)
       consistent with previous years. This livestock was sold to Pakihiroa Farms Limited after 30 June 2006 at these market
       values.

       During the year Te Runanga o Ngati Porou, working through the Farm Committee, progressed the establishment of a
       100% wholly owned subsidiary, Pakihiroa Farms Limited (PFL) to manage the farming activities. Te Runanga o Ngati
       Porou agreed to transfer its farming assets (excluding Pakihiroa Station which will be leased to PFL) and liabilities to
       PFL at market values.
       Puanga Station has previously been recorded in the financial statements as cost price ($640,000) and the $1,205,000
       gain on sale of Puanga Station reflects the increase in the value of Puanga Station.
       The transfer of assets was approved prior to year end. However, formal settlement of the $1,845,000 owing by Pakihiroa
       Farms Limited to Te Runanga o Ngati Porou was completed on 16 October 2006. The remaining assets and liabilities
       were transferred after year end as per Note 22.

       Fishing Entity Structures
       The TOKM allocation assets have been recognised in the Te Runanga o Ngati Porou financial statements reflecting Te
       Runanga o Ngati Porou Trustees as the Responsible Trustee for Porou Ariki Trust (established to form the functions of the
       Mandated Iwi Organisation – MIO). Porou Ariki Trust has a 100% shareholding in Ngati Porou Seafoods Limited (Asset
       Holding Company). Upon allocation:
       • Porou Ariki Trust received the cash from Te Ohu Kaimoana and
       • NPSL received the Quota, Quota Shortfall Cash and Aotearoa Fisheries Limited Income Shares.
       Recognition of Allocation as a Revenue Receipt rather than as a Capital Receipt
       Consistent with New Zealand Generally Accepted Accounting Practice, the trustees of Te Runanga o Ngati Porou have
       determined the allocation of fishing settlement assets is a revenue receipt rather than a capital receipt. Recognition of
       the allocation assets as a revenue receipt is a financial reporting requirement. These financial reporting requirements
       do not detract from Te Runanga o Ngati Porou’s position that these allocation assets have always belonged to Ngati
       Porou and have been returned to the iwi.
       Annual Review of TOKM Allocation Assets Carrying Values
       Generally Accepted Accounting Practice requires an annual review of the carrying values of the Quota and Aotearoa
       Fisheries Limited Income Shares for impairment. With Ngati Porou having received allocation within three months of year-
       end (30 June 2006) there is little publicly-available financial information and trading history to inform a robust valuation
       process. Te Runanga o Ngati Porou in conjunction with the board of Ngati Porou Seafoods Ltd (Asset Holding Company)
       and professional advisers (Actuaries and Accountants) undertook a detailed review of carrying values as at 30 June 2006
       and determined that the following approaches were to be taken over the valuations of assets as at 30 June 2006:
       • Using a discounted cash-flow valuation methodology and an 8% discount rate, the TOKM quota values should be
          written-down (prior to initial recognition) by approximately $1 million as at 30 June 2006 to reflect the income
          earning potential of the quota to Ngati Porou
       • Using a net tangible assets valuation methodology, the TOKM AFL Income Share values assigned should be written-
          down by approximately $5.6 million (or 25%) to reflect the inability to generate returns to Ngati Porou until
          approximately 2009/2010 and the various restrictions attached to these shares such as no voting rights and no
          ability to sell the income shares.
       Valuation of these assets within a new and evolving environment (especially the AFL Income Shares)
       required the exercise of considerable judgement and the Trustees believe the fair values recognised for
       these assets as at 30 June 2006 is prudent.

                                                                                                                              43

      During the year, the provision for doubtful debts on Mana Loans was increased to match the outstanding principal and
      interest. This was seen as prudent and reflects the intention to wind up the activity of the Mana Loan Portfolio next
      year (2006/07).

      Tyndall Road Property
      In October 1996, Te Runanga o Ngati Porou received title to a property in Tyndall Road, Gisborne from what was
      previously the Department of Land and Survey Information (DOSLI). The title was received by the runanga on behalf
      of Te Reo o Te Iwi Kokiri, as Te Reo o Te Iwi Kokiri was still in the process of becoming a separate legal entity.
      It is still undecided which entity will ultimately hold title to the property. As the runanga is only holding
      the property until the ultimate beneficiary is determined it has not recognised the property in its financial


                                                                                                                    45

      Ngati Porou Seafoods Ltd was incorporated on 16 March 2006 as an asset holding entity to record the receipt of fishing
      allocation assets from TOKM. The assets held in Ngati Porou Seafoods Ltd have to be managed in accordance with the
      Trust Deed of Porou Ariki Trust.

      Porou Ariki Trust was set up by Te Runanga o Ngati Porou during the current year. The Porou Ariki Trust was established
      to perform the functions of a Mandated Iwi Organisation (MIO) under the Maori Fisheries Act 2004 on behalf of Te
      Runanga o Porou which has official MIO status in its capacity as trustee. These functions primarily include receiving and
      holding settlement assets and establishing asset-holding companies.

      Pakihiroa Farms Ltd (PFL) was incorporated on 25 January 2006. PFL was set up to manage the farming activities. Te
      Runanga o Ngati Porou agreed to transfer its farming assets (excluding Pakihiroa Station as it has restrictions over
      transfer of title and will be leased to PFL instead) and liabilities to PFL at market values.

      The transfer of the land and buildings was approved prior to year end. However, formal settlement of the $1,845,000
      owing by Pakihiroa Farms Ltd to Te Runanga o Ngati Porou was completed on 16 October 2006. The transfer of the
      remaining assets and liabilities took place after year end, per Note 22.

Te Runanga o Ngati Porou and Group
NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS for the year ended 30 June 2006


18.    FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS
       The runanga is party to financial instruments as part of its normal operations. These financial instruments include bank
       accounts, short term deposits, investments, debtors, creditors and loans. All financial instruments are recognised in the
       Statement of Financial Position and all revenues and expenses in relation to financial instruments are recognised in the
       Statement of Financial Performance. All financial instruments are shown at their estimated fair value.

       Credit Risk
       Financial instruments which potentially subject the runanga to credit risk principally include cash, short term deposits
       and accounts receivable. Credit risk with respect to cash and short term deposits is reduced by investing in a registered
       bank. While accounts receivable are unsecured, the majority of the debtors are with government organisations.

19.    RADIO NGATI POROU
       The runanga owns two radio licences (frequencies), AM 585 & FM 98.1. Radio Ngati Porou (RNP) is currently in operation
       as a stand-alone entity, separate from the day-to-day financial control of the runanga. During the 1993/94 year, NZ On
       Air transferred the assets it purchased for RNP’s purposes to the runanga. As the runanga receives no financial benefit
       from these frequencies, the assets have been included in the books at no value.

20.    CONTINGENT LIABILITIES
       Te Runanga o Ngati Porou is not aware of any contingent liabilities as at 30 June 2006 (2005: Nil)

21.    COMMITMENTS
       Major Regional Investment: Tairawhiti Land Development Trust
       Te Runanga o Ngati Porou is a contributor to the Tairawhiti Development Task Force investment in the major regional
       initiative undertaken by NZ Trade and Enterprise and has committed $150,000 to this venture. The commitment
       comprises $50,000 per annum for three years from 2005.
       There are no capital commitments as at 30 June 2006 (2005: Nil).

22.    SUBSEQUENT EVENTS
       Pakihiroa Farms Limited
       With effect 1 July 2006, the net assets and liabilities of the runanga’s farming activities (Pakihiroa – excluding land and
       buildings and Puanga Stations) were transferred from the runanga to Pakihiroa Farms Ltd. Pakihiroa Farms Ltd is 100%
       owned by the runanga.
       The market value of the net assets (assets less liabilities) transferred to Pakihiroa Farms Limited was $2.5 million and the
       consideration paid to Te Runanga o Ngati Porou were shares to an equivalent value in Pakihiroa Farms Ltd.
       On 16 October 2006, Pakihiroa Farms Limited repaid its Mana Loan with Te Runanga o Ngati Porou.
AUDIT REPORT

TO THE READERS OF TE RUNANGA O NGATI POROU AND GROUP’s
FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
FOR THE YEAR ENDED 30 JUNE 2006
The Auditor-General is the auditor of Te Runanga o Ngati Porou (the Trust Board). The Auditor-General has appointed me,
Graham Naylor, using the staff and resources of Deloitte, to carry out the audit of the financial statements of the Trust Board, on
his behalf, for the year ended 30 June 2006.

Unqualified Opinion
In our opinion the financial statements of the Trust Board and Group on pages 35 to 48:
- comply with generally accepted accounting practice in New Zealand; and
- fairly reflect:
                    - the Trust Board and Group’s financial position as at 30 June 2006; and
                    - the results of their operations and cash flows for the year ended on that date.
The audit was completed on 13 November 2006 and is the date at which our opinion is expressed. The basis of our opinion
is explained below. In addition, we outline the responsibilities of the Board of Trustees and the Auditor, and explain our
independence.

Basis of Opinion
We carried out the audit in accordance with the Auditor-General’s Auditing Standards, which incorporate the New Zealand
Auditing Standards. We planned and performed the audit to obtain all the information and explanations we considered
necessary in order to obtain reasonable assurance that the financial statements did not have material misstatements, whether
caused by fraud or error.
Material misstatements are differences or omissions of amounts and disclosures that would affect a reader’s overall
understanding of the financial statements. If we had found material misstatements that were not corrected, we would have
referred to them in our opinion. The audit involved performing procedures to test the information presented in the financial
statements. We assessed the results of those procedures in forming our opinion.
Audit procedures generally include:
- determining whether significant financial and management controls are working and can be relied on to produce complete
    and accurate data;
- verifying samples of transactions and account balances;
- performing analyses to identify anomalies in the reported data;
- reviewing significant estimates and judgements made by the Board of Trustees;
- confirming year-end balances;
- determining whether accounting policies are appropriate and consistently applied; and
- determining whether all financial statement disclosures are adequate.
We did not examine every transaction, nor do we guarantee complete accuracy of the financial statements.
We evaluated the overall adequacy of the presentation of information in the financial statements. We obtained all the
information and explanations we required to support our opinion above.

Responsibilities of the Board of Trustees and the Auditor
The Board of Trustees is responsible for preparing financial statements that show the financial position of the Trust Board and
Group as at 30 June 2006 and the results of their operations and cash flows for the year ended on that date. The Board of
Trustees’ responsibilities arise from the Maori Trust Boards Act 1955.
We are responsible for expressing an independent opinion on the financial statements and reporting that opinion to you. This
responsibility arises from section 15 of the Public Audit Act 2001 and section 31(2) of the Maori Trust Boards Act 1955.

Independence
When carrying out the audit we followed the independence requirements of the Auditor-General, which incorporate the
independence requirements of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of New Zealand.
Other than the audit, we have no relationship with or interests in the Trust Board.
