Mai Mokau ki Tītoki Ko Taranaki te maunga Ko Mohakatino te awa Ko Tokomaru te Waka Ko Ngāti Tama te iwi
We are descendants of the Tokomaru waka and historically maintained the northern Taranaki border. Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Tama, the mandated authority, advocates for the wellbeing of our people, whenua and environment. Read more about the work of our trustees.
Te Rūnanga encourages people who whakapapa to Ngāti Tama o Taranaki to register their membership on our database. Members can participate in activities including trustee elections and vote on important iwi matters. Updating your contact details is important so we can keep in touch with you.
We are kaitiaki of our rohe’s natural environment, providing cultural support and guidance when activities including construction impacts our whenua. We are proud to be involved with initiatives that restore biodiversity and sustain our taonga species, including the reintroduction of kōkako to Parininihi.
Ngāti Tama is partnering with Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency to deliver Te Ara o Te Ata: Mt Messenger Bypass on State Highway 3 to provide a safer and more reliable route. The project involves substantial environmental restoration. Our agreements with the agency provide significant benefits for our iwi including land exchange, financial compensation and contract and job opportunities.
