Te Kotahitanga o Ngāti Tuwharetoa Trust is a forum for all Ngāti Tuwharetoa hapū to come together as equals, to discuss our common goals, and to support each other to reach final settlement. Te Kotahitanga is the mandated post-settlement representative of Ngāti Tuwharetoa.
Te Kotahitanga includes 26 Ngāti Tuwharetoa hapū. Each hapū appoints a trustee and an alternate to represent their hapū concerns.
Te Ariki Sir Tumu te Heuheu
Sir Tumu te Heuheu is the Patron of Te Kotahitanga. His leadership ensures that we think always about the needs of future generations, that we are mindful of our tikanga and united in our efforts. The Ariki also leads our engagement with the Crown, with other iwi and with our people.
Te Kotahitanga comprises one trustee and one alternate for each hapū, in accordance with the Trust Deed.
