Waikato is a growing tribe of over 80,000, and just like our tuupuna before us, we are voyagers and pioneers. We present to you the ever-evolving Waikato-Tainui story.
Across five key pou, Hapori, Taiao, Kaupapa, Whai Rawa and Mahi Tonu, we group and measure our mahi. This is all aligned to Whakatupuranga 2050.
We support tribal members' success by providing grants, scholarships and support for personal development opportunities. Explore the range of grants, subsidies, scholarship and health assistance opportunities currently available to tribal members.
Waikato-Tainui hold numerous events throughout the calendar year. Many are celebrations which reaffirm our identity as Tainui waka and as protectors of the Kiingitanga movement.
The latest happenings within the Waikato-Tainui tribe – and there is a lot happening. Find our press releases and other media here too.
Our most valuable possessions we hold as an iwi are the teachings given by our ancestors, taonga tuku iho, handed down from one generation to the next.
We have an enduring entrepreneurial and innovative history. Discover businesses in the Waikato that are owned by our very own tribal members.
