Our success is determined by many people working together towards a common purpose.
Te kapa Our people
In traditional times, Ngāi Tahu relied on their ability to harvest food from the land and waterways to survive. Some Ngāi Tahu people would fish the lakes, rivers, and seas; others would hunt and forage from the mountains and forests, and grow crops. By working together, Ngāi Tahu could fill the whata (store house), and the people could thrive.
Today we employ staff from many ethnicities and backgrounds in roles throughout our businesses. We have jetboat and helicopter pilots, bus and truck drivers, dairy and sheep farmers, and property managers and developers; to name a few. We understand that we work for more than 58,000 tribal members, and through our work we contribute to improving the well-being of Ngāi Tahu people.
