Iwi Registration

Purpose

The Te Kawerau Iwi Tribal Authority is developing a database of members of the Te Kawerau a Maki Iwi. The purpose of the database is to:

  • Enable Iwi members to participate in Te Kawerau Iwi Tribal Authority elections as a voter or a candidate (must be over 18 years old);
  • Allow Iwi members to be involved in shaping the direction of the Iwi;
  • Enable Iwi members to access entitlements such as sponsorship, scholarships
  • Assist Te Kawerau Iwi Tribal Authority to communicate with you; and
  • Build the Iwi whakapapa database.

Eligibility

Registration on the Iwi Register is open to members of the Te Kawerau a Maki Iwi. Descendants of Te Kawerau a Maki are those people who can whakapapa (either by birth, adoption or whangai) to two or more of the following persons:

  • Tawhia ki te Rangi (also known as Te Kawerau a Maki); and/or
  • Mana; and/or
