    About us

    Ngāti Rārua descend from the Tainui waka and originate from the western coast of the King Country, Waikato. Ngāti Rārua tūpuna came to Te Tauihu o te Waka a Māui in the 1820s and 1830s, as part of the great southwards migration of the Kawhia and Taranaki tribes. Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Rārua manages assets, businesses and taonga on behalf of all Ngāti Rārua whānau members.

    Environmental mahi is carried out by the Taiao Team and includes:

    • Assessment of resource consents, concessions & mining permits
    • Participation in council district & regional resource management matters
    • Responding to consultation requests on council projects - capital infrastructure projects; reserves policy; long term plans and other strategies
    • Responding to consultation requests on wide range of environmental projects and developments
    • Building capacity and systems to strengthen Ngāti Rārua involvement in environmental management
    • Supporting a variety of rūnanga and whānau projects
