Our Rohe

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.

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.
