Ngā hononga o te Karauna ki ngā whānau, ki ngā hapū me ngā iwi

Te Puni Kōkiri leads

Te Puni Kōkiri influences

Te Puni Kōkiri invests in

Leading on-the-ground engagement and connections with whānau, hapū and iwi.

Influences the agenda reflecting the objectives of the Crown and the voice and interests of Māori.

Building capability and governance to better engage with the Crown and manage interests.

The shift we are seeking:

Our on-the-ground engagement strengthens relationships and brings the voices of whānau, hapū and iwi into policy

Our goals for the next four years are that:

  • Our work, and increasingly that of the wider public sector, is informed by active relationships with whānau, hapū, and iwi;
  • Whānau, hapū and iwi are equipped to provide strategic input into the business of government; and
  • Our monitoring increases transparency and accountability of the public sector for its performance for whānau, hapū and iwi and informs the Government’s strategy for Māori Development.

Our focus over the next year will include implementing an investment approach that responds to the aspirations of whānau, hapū and iwi. We expect to learn lessons from the investments to feed into policy more broadly, and to profile various models of engagement.

We will also be refreshing our approach to our statutory monitoring role in respect of services delivered to whānau, hapū and iwi by the public sector. We expect this to increase transparency and accountability, and to inform better and more sophisticated engagement with Māori by public sector agencies.

We will work closely with other relevant public sector agencies, including Te Arawhiti, the proposed Office for Māori Crown Relations.
