Whichever way you look at it, our kaiwhakahaere can take credit as the leader who brought this project to completion.
From The Press
"The new Christchurch civic building was given its new Maori name at a dawn blessing ceremony this morning. The building was named Te Hononga. The literal translation of Te Hononga is "the joining". The name was chosen to mark the deal between Ngai Tahu and the Christchurch City Council to build the new civic headquarters.I'm not sure about PPP's but i am sure that we need more joining and working together, where the maori worldview is respected.
