Independent Māori Statutory Board

Poari ā-Ture Māori Motuhake

The Independent Māori Statutory Board helps us make decisions, perform our functions and exercise our powers.

The role of Independent Māori Statutory Board

The Māori Statutory Board is independent of the Auckland Council.

The board ensures that we take the views of Māori into account when we make decisions.

To do this, the board:

  • puts forward the cultural, economic, environmental, and social issues that are significant for mana whenua groups and mataawaka in Tāmaki Makaurau
  • makes sure that we comply with statutory provisions that refer to the Treaty of Waitangi.

How the board operates

The board develops a list of up-to-date and prioritised issues that are significant to Māori in Auckland.

This list of issues guides the board in developing its work programme.

The board also:

  • gives advice to us about issues that affect Māori in Auckland
  • helps us create suitable documents and processes to meet its statutory obligations to Māori in Auckland.

We meet with the board at least four times each year to discuss our performance of our duties.
