GOVERNANCE

The Ngāti Tūwharetoa Hapū Forum Trust is a forum for all Ngāti Tūwharetoa hapū to come together as equals, to discuss our common goals, and to support each other to reach a collective Treaty settlement. The Hapū Forum is the mandated representative of Ngāti Tūwharetoa, responsible for negotiations a comprehensive settlement of our historic Treaty of Waitangi claims.

The Hapū Forum includes 26 Ngāti Tūwharetoa Hapū. Each hapū appoints a delegate and an alternate to represent their hapu’s concerns.

Sir Tumu te Heuheu

Sir Tumu te Heuheu is the chairman of the THF. 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.

Colin Rangi

The deputy chair works closely with te ariki. He supports the THF and the ariki by ensuring delegates are able to speak frankly, explore ideas and generate collective views and wisdom for the proper operation of the THF. He also ensures risks to the THF are properly identified and managed, and acts as a link between governance and kaimahi on a day to day basis.

The Hapū Forum comprises one delegate and one alternate for each hapū, in accordance with the Trust Deed.
