Ā mātou kaupapa

Our work and priorities for Māori

The work of Te Puni Kōkiri is underpinned by four outcome areas which support our vision of iwi, hapū, and whānau Māori succeeding as Māori.

Whakapapa (Identity)

Oranga (Wellbeing)

Māori New Zealanders being confident of enjoying both opportunities and outcomes that are equal to those of all New Zealanders.
