Te Kōti Rangatahi Māori

Te Kōti Rangatahi is a judicially-led initiative for young Māori, but is open to non-Māori too. Young people who admit to the charge(s) they are facing in the regular Youth Court can choose to have their next hearing held on the marae where their family group conference takes place.

An enhancement to the youth court process is the inclusion of a kaumātua panel who provide valuable support with the intention of facilitating and reconnecting rangatahi with their culture.

Huria Marae hosts Te Kōti Rangatahi Māori once a month on a Monday, and alternates bi-annually with Maungatapu Marae. The marae has hosted in 2016, 2018 and 2020 so far.
