About

Ngātiawa Iwi Board Est. 2013

The tupuna lead us on a journey of discovery of who they were and who we are today. The majority of Ngātiawa were displaced, disbursed our history distorted under the direction of the colonial government. On this pathway of discovery, many relationships were rekindled and new ones created. With a common quest re-establish, the whanaungatanga lost to some generations. The kaupapa, own who we are, stand tall and ensure our mokopuna do not walk through life lost. Many have gathered to embrace our prestigious whakapapa and history. Knowing our Tupuna lived as honorable people, with integrity.


Through research and working on the Treaty Claims, a need has identified a structure had to be established that would ensure our whakapapa, and tupuna stories be written into the history of this country. The first ever registered Ngātiawa Iwi Charitable Trust, on the Kapiti Coast was recorded. Giving a forum to establish mana restoration on the Kapiti Coast for Ngātiawa displaced - current and future generations.
