Mihi mai ki a Tara Sears

2022 Te Tatau o Te Arawa Election candidate

Ko Ngongotahā te maunga  
Ko Rotorua-nui-a-kahu matamomoe te roto  
Ko Te Arawa te waka  
Ko Ngāti Whakaue te iwi  
Ko Ngāti Tūnohopū te hapū  
Ko Paratehoata te marae  

Ko Tara Sears ahau  

I am a proud Te Arawa Rangatahi, passionate about sparking change within our iwi for the current and future generations to come.  

I am particularly passionate about finding ways to live a more sustainable, indigenous lifestyle and to do this, Te Arawa needs to have a strong voice in the decision-making process of where our community is heading. This strong voice needs to come with a strong understanding of our community, the environment and most importantly, Te Ao Māori.  

This is the voice I hope to be.  

The partnership between Te Tatau o Te Arawa and the Rotorua Lakes Council is our opportunity to create a community that WE as MĀORI want to grow and raise our children in.  

This is what I hope to achieve  

Ngā Mihi.
