With a population of 400 residents our presence on the island is important. Our Runaka aims to continue to uphold the traditions of our tÄ«puna from collecting food, to birding on the Motu tÄ«tÄ«. We stand as guardians of our ancestral lands, for those overseas and those yet to come. We wish to extend our warmest welcome to whÄnau travelling to the island and welcome you home to Rakiura.
