FACE BOOK   Ngā Kaitiaki Tuku Iho Inc. has a closed facebook page by that name.  If you would like to check it out please ask to join.      Social media like facebook is only a small part of what KTI is all about.  If you are unfamiliar with facebook try and find someone who knows how it works and you may find it’s for you.  Facebook is not as scary as the main stream media would have you believe. 

PETS   Please contact me if you need to bring well behaved companion animals.  No pets in buildings.

If you want to share your ideas in a safe supportive atmosphere this conference is for you.

Cheers,    Yours sincerely    Jim Hilton Secretariat KTI   Sunday 25 August 2019
