Te Umutaoroa: A model for Patuheuheu hapū development
Patuheuheu is a hapū located in Waiōhau in the Eastern Bay of Plenty. In 1886, following Patuheuheu’s loss of land at Te Houhi - now known as part of Galatea, the Māori prophet, Te Kooti Arikirangi Te Turuki left behind a prophecy of hope that promised the return and restoration of the land. With land comes prosperity, spiritual connection, health and wellbeing, and mana (whenua). This article will canvass Māori development from 1900 to 2025, and community development theory, to set the scene for an exploration of the relationship between prophecy and hapū development. This will provide the wider historical and theoretical context for the Patuheuheu hapū development model that follows.
