Terry has been involved with the Runanga for 12 years and has been the Hokonui  Te Runanga O Ngai Tahu representative since January 1999.

His special interest is building succession out of settlement - “mo tatou, a, mo ka uri a muri ake nei”.

Terry works tirelessly to protect and enhance spiritual, cultural, organisational, educational and economic aspirations of  Hokonui Runanga, serving its members and the wider whanau to position the  Runanga as one of the key stake holders in the community.

His vision for the future is for Hokonui Runanga to be a leading organisation well positioned back in its role where it has been absent for so long.
