We have a rich puna of informational tools to help you learn more about our iwi, our rohe, our significant sites, our taonga. You can also read more about our government structure and how we are working hard to keep the dreams alive for those before us in order to future proof our iwi for the next generation.


Te Ara Hapara – Ngāi Takoto Business Plan (2013-2016) is the first of “our own steps” towards completing the journey initiated as the Ngāi Takoto 20/20 Vision Plan in 2000, and is one that we have consistently planned and received endorsement for.

Those tasked with that new responsibility (Te Runanga o Ngāi Takoto) have produced this business plan and its associated budget for the purpose of protecting and managing our iwi assets on behalf of our people.

Change will provide challenges, debate, and a significant shift by those involved, in order to build capacity and capability at all levels within the structure, and in order to strengthen the iwi capability to engage and respond appropriately, effectively and efficiently in an ever-evolving world.

We must forever be reminded also of our obligations to the required ongoing nurturing, caring and sharing responsibilities that ensures our survival as whānau, as marae, as the Iwi of Ngāi Takoto.
