Iwi in our region

Photo of hongi on marae

Iwi throughout the region have expressed a desire to work in various forms of partnership with the Waikato Regional Council. Some of these aspirations are being embedded via Treaty of Waitangi settlements whilst others are expressed by memorandum of understanding and other formal and informal relationships. 

The principle iwi groups in our region are Waikato, Maniapoto, Raukawa, Hauraki, Te Arawa and Tūwharetoa. Within these iwi groups there are numerous hapū (sub-tribe). Iwi are often represented in an official capacity by an iwi authority, iwi trust board or rūnanga.

 Refer to the Kāhui Māngai website to view iwi, hapū and marae in your rohe (region): Kāhui Māngai(external link) - link)
