Tatau Pounamu Collective
Tatau Pounamu is a community collective with the vision for Eastside Rotorua to be a safe place where every tamaiti (child) reaches their potential. The meaning of Tatau Pounamu reflects this as a metaphor for a safe place. Historically, Tatau Pounamu was a space created during Māori battle to provide a safe haven for the injured. More on the Tatau Pounamu Collective here.
Rotorua Lakes Council
The Vision for Rotorua is “Together we can - and do - make a difference. Tatau tatau - We together”. The Rotorua Way focuses on what makes Rotorua special – the district’s active environment, the strong Te Arawa culture and manaakitanga, the fantastic lifestyle and the diverse economic opportunities that exist here. Together, these make Rotorua a unique place in which to live, work, invest and to visit. The Key Moves and Actions in this document provide direction on ‘how’ this Vision can be achieved in Eastside.
