In 2014, the New Zealand Government agreed the 250thanniversary of the first meetings between Māori and Europeans as a major national Tier 1 commemoration. Gisborne and Tairāwhiti have a special position as the first landing site of Cook, Tupaia and others on the Endeavour, and will be the place where commemorations of this historic event will begin in 2019.
Formed in 2013 by iwi and members of the wider Tairāwhiti / Gisborne community, the Te Hā 1769 Sestercentennial Trust is an independent, community driven, charitable trust, mandated by Government as the co-ordinating body for the 250th commemorations in Gisborne and Tairāwhiti.
The Trust is developing a programme to commemorate the 250th anniversary of the first meetings in October 1769 between Māori and Europeans on and off the shores of Tairāwhiti/Gisborne, and to celebrate the feats of our ancestors in exploring the world's largest ocean. The Trust is facilitating a programme of local, national and international events and initiatives leading up to and including the commemorations in 2019, and to generate legacies for the benefit of the region and the nation.
