Te Hui Ahurei is the platform where Tūhoe can facilitate new ideas, embrace new challenges and cultivate traditional values as a people. 

It reflects who we are as a people, who we have become, and what remains possible for Tūhoe in the future. 

He whītau raranga tangata is what we do on stage, on the sports fields.

He marae tahia is what we do sweeping the past into the future. 

Ko te kura nui, ko te kura roa, he kura tangata embraces the new, acknowledges evolution and cultivates traditional values.
