The Story behind the Design

The design of Rau Papa represents:

  • The whakapapa of mana whenua,

  • The whakapapa of ahikā and the diverse kaitiaki of the land,

  • And finally, Rau Papa represents the aspiration of continued growth and strength of whakapapa, well-being and abundance of the South Waikato community.
