Whakapapa of Te Toi Mahana

Te Toi Mahana means “the place of caring and nurturing, standing and belonging”. 

Our name was gifted by the Council’s Tākai Here partners - Taranaki Whānui ki Te Upoko o te Ika/Port Nicholson Block Settlement Trust, Te Rūnanganui o Te Āti Awa ki te Upoko o Te Ika a Māui, and Te Rūnanga O Toa Rangatira.

The twin roofs represent the partnership, trust and manaatikanga between “Te Toi Mahana ‘’ and our resident whānau. The koru on each end of the roofs, embodies the perpetual movement of our whānau through the journey of life. The central white tāniko pattern symbolises warmth and the centrality of whānau to the purpose of “Te Toi Mahana.”

The bottom tāniko pattern is the foundation and represents the place of standing and belonging much like a maunga.
