As a small agency with a wide remit to support outcomes for almost one-sixth of the population of Aotearoa New Zealand, Te Puni Kōkiri has to make careful choices about where to focus its efforts. Our three strategic priorities and nine focus areas reflect the organisation’s intention to provide more focussed effort within a narrower work programme.
Māori economic resilience
The investment made to recover from COVID-19 builds a more sustainable, resilient and inclusive Māori economy.
Te ao Māori
The collective and individual rights and interests of Māori as tangata whenua are recognised, protected, supported, and invested in.
Equitable & effective government performance for Māori
Māori have improved outcomes across key areas of government investment.
Tahua 2022 - A Secure Future
This year’s Māori Budget package builds on the Government’s previous investments in areas like health, education, employment, economic development, tamariki, and whānau wellbeing.
