Te Tai Hauāuru is a combination of two former Te Puni Kōkiri regions, Te Taihauāuru and Te Whanganui ā Tara. 

The  region covers the western side of the lower North Island from the Mohakatino River in the north through to Wellington incorporating Taranaki, Whānganui, Manawatu, Horowhenua.  It then crosses the sea to Tau Ihu o te Waka a Māui – the top of the South Island.  The region also includes Rēkohu-Wharekauri, the Chatham Islands.

There are six Te Puni Kōkiri offices in Taranaki, Taumarunui, Whanganui, Palmerston North, Lower Hutt, and Nelson.

Our Regional Manager is Willis Katene
