Our tohu, or logo, is in a circle, representing ‘O’ for Ōrākei. The left-hand side Is our whakapapa. It represents Te Tāou, Ngā Oho and Te Uringutu, collectively known as Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei. The right-hand side Is our strategic focus. It represents the past, the present, the future and acknowledges that we are intergenerational. Strong. Proud. Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei.
