The draft mandate strategy outlines the Association’s representative structure and the processes it has in place to achieve a Crown recognised mandate to represent Ngāti Rangatahi in Treaty settlement negotiations with the Crown.
Ngāti Rangatahi Tūpuna - the draft mandate strategy notes Ngāti Rangatahi descend from either Tohiraukena or Tukawekai tūpuna.
Ngāti Rangatahi Hapū - Ngāti Hekeāwai, Ngāti Hinekiore, Ngāti Hinerangi, Ngāti Hinewai, Ngāti Hira, Ngāti Kauwhakarewa, Ngāti Kōwainga, Ngāti Ngātu, Ngāti Paretehō, Ngāti Pareuira, Ngāti Puha, Ngāti Reremai, Ngāti Rōpukauri, Ngāti Tamakaitoa, and Ngāti Wera.
