Our Rohe

Waikato-Waiariki is a combination of three regions, Waikato, Te Arawa and Te Moana a Toi.

Waikato-Tainui rohe extends from the Bombay Hills and Port Waikato in the north, along the western coastline south to Mokau, eastward embracing the King Country, through to the Kaimai Ranges, the Hauraki plains and returning northwards to the Coromandel Peninsula.

Moving east across the Mamaku and Kaimai ranges, it encompasses Te Moana a Toi through to Wakatiri – the furthest point East.

The southern boundaries are at Titiraupenga (Pureora-Western Bays, Taupō) to Titi o Kura (the peak at the beginning of Kaweka Range near Te Haroto, Napier/Taupō Highway).

About Te Kāhui Māngai

Te Kāhui Māngai (Directory of Iwi and Māori Organisations) gives information on iwi identified in the Māori Fisheries Act 2004, and those iwi/hapū that have begun the process of negotiating settlement of their historical Treaty of Waitangi claims; and mandated Iwi Organisations to represent these iwi/hapū that have been recognised by the New Zealand Government.
