Te Puni Kōkiri has developed a national directory of iwi and Māori organisations called Te Kāhui Māngai.
Te Kāhui Māngai is a useful consultation tool for anyone wishing to contact representatives of iwi and hapū. In particular, it is the mechanism by which the Crown meets its obligations under section 35A(2) of the Resource Management Act (RMA) in which it must provide information to each local authority on iwi authorities and groups that represent hapū for the purposes of the RMA. Section 35A(2)(b) states that each local authority must include in its records all the information provided to it by the Crown. This website is the means of providing that information.
Te Kāhui Māngai is also useful for those who want to find out basic information about iwi, hapū and marae; and the role of certain other national and urban Māori organisations.
