About Te Kāhui Māngai
Te Kāhui Māngai (Directory of Iwi and Māori Organisations) gives information on iwi identified in the Māori Fisheries Act 2004, and those iwi/hapū that have begun the process of negotiating settlement of their historical Treaty of Waitangi claims; and mandated Iwi Organisations to represent these iwi/hapū that have been recognised by the New Zealand Government.
