Te Wananga o ngā Mana Whenua o Tāmaki Makaurau

Tāmaki Makaurau Mana Whenua Forum

The Tāmaki Makaurau Mana Whenua Forum is a governance-level independent forum which operates under its own terms of reference.

​What the forum does

The forum partners with the Crown and Auckland Council on national and region-shaping matters that require a collective voice.

The forum's membership includes 19 council-recognised mana whenua iwi/hapῡ and can make decisions on matters within its authority.

The Co-Chairs of the forum are Karen Wilson (Te Akitai Waiohua) and Ngarimu Blair (Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei).

What the forum doesn't do

The forum does not:

  • represent individual iwi/hapῡ
  • limit the rights and obligations of individual iwi/hapῡ.

Matters relating to individual iwi/hapῡ must be consulted on separately.
