Tēnā koutou and welcome to Te Rūnanga-Ā-Iwi-O-Ngāpuhi

Our organisation was established to lead the spiritual, cultural, social and economic growth of Ngāpuhi.  Our vision and mission is to ensure that the sacred house of Ngāpuhi stands firm. This is a vision we have and continue to strive towards.

We work with our people to build empowering initiatives for our future and provide a range of services and funding opportunities to support the achievements and goals of descendants of Ngāpuhi. We provide Scholarships, Discretionary and Sponsorship Funding, as well as Hapū Development Funding.

Te Rūnanga-Ā-Iwi-O-Ngāpuhi is charged with protecting and growing the core assets and essential revenue streams of Ngāpuhi. The Ngāpuhi Asset Holding Company, a subsidiary of the Rūnanga monitors and prudently invests those assets in the most effective beneficial ways possible.

In following our vision we have also established Te Rōpū o Tūhoronuku which is a group that has been established to lead and facilitate discussion on the Treaty Settlements process for Ngāpuhi

Ngāpuhi Iwi Social Services is another subsidiary of Te Rūnanga-Ā-Iwi-O-Ngāpuhi that provides programmes and skilled workers who support the social development and communities of Ngāpuhi.
