Waikato-Tainui - overview

Waikato-Tainui are tangata whenua ('people of the land') of the Waikato region. Thirty nine of their marae are located within Waikato District Council’s boundaries.

Did you know that 'Tainui' was the name of an infant who did not survive childbirth? At the child's burial site grew a great tree. This tree was used to build the voyaging waka (canoe), called ‘Tainui’. Led by the chief, Hoturoa, the Tainui waka was one of the migratory canoes that voyaged from Hawaiiki across the Pacific Ocean to Aotearoa over 800 years ago.

There are four principal tribes that comprise the Tainui waka. They are Hauraki, Ngaati Maniapoto, Ngaati Raukawa and Waikato (Source: www.tainui.co.nz).

The Waikato-Tainui iwi are the kai-tiaki (guardian) of the Kiingitanga. The Kiingitanga was established in 1863 to unite iwi and halt land alienation.

In the 2013 Census, 55,995 people in New Zealand indicated they were affiliated with Waikato-Tainui, with 34.5 per cent of them living within the Waikato region.* However, the Waikato-Tainui tribal register, administered by the iwi, has over 67,000 registered members (as at October 2015).

Waikato marae

Thirty-nine of the sixty-eight Waikato-Tainui marae sit within the Waikato District Council's boundaries.  We work continuously to ensure that views and interests of these marae communities are considered in decision-making and planning. This includes regular liaison with iwi and hapu environmental representatives on resource consent and other associated matters.

See the Te Puni Kokiri website for a map showing Waikato-Tainui tribal areas (rohe); a list of hapu and marae within these areas; and a list of representative iwi organisations in relation to this information.

See the Waikato Regional Council's website to view regional iwi management plans and find out more about Maaori and the Waikato River and its co-management

Find out more about local iwi working together with our Council, other Maaori and iwi organisations and other stakeholders such as Waikato-Tainui and the Waikato Regional Council. In particular, our Council is involved in a number of initiatives related to managing the Waikato River and the Waipa River.

MAP IMAGE FOR PAGE
- stage 2 update

Note - for now we are just linking to an existing map on the Te Puni Kokiri website.

However, in future, this page could have a map added showing district iwi and/or marae locations (2 maps?).

Could be static initially.  Could be clickable to websites later… but that might be a bit ambitious.

Map style will be updated to be consistent with new map/graphic styles to match the updated website.

Discuss with Marae Tukere when developing map. She also says:
"There is a map on the Te Puni Kokiri site, I am working with WRC on a map to show all iwi as well, still in development. We should discuss further."

At this stage the main map of interest is the PDF supplied by Marae.
