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.
