Iwi Survey

Kia Whakakotahi Ai Taatou. Building Resilience Together

We want to hear from you to understand what a resilient future for whaanau, marae and our communities looks like

What is the Waikato-Tainui Iwi Survey and why are we doing it?

To meet the challenges of life under Covid-19, Waikato-Tainui want to understand the impact our services are making on tribal members and marae.

All of our activities over the short term are focused on driving our own model of self-sufficiency for our marae, whaanau and communities. This will fast track our ability to build resilience and drive outcomes for our people now and into the future.

The Waikato-Tainui iwi survey will help capture this information and give us a baseline of data to understand if the services the iwi currently provides are creating real positive change for tribal members and marae.

What is in the survey?

The survey will focus on eight kaupapa:

  • Too Whare / Your Household
  • Te Reo Maaori
  • Maatauranga / Education 
  • Oo Hononga ki te Iwi / Connection 



  • Hauora / Wellbeing
  • Hapuu & Iwi Tikanga
  • Taha Puutea / Financial Security
  • Waikato Events & Communication

Who can complete the survey?

To complete the survey, you must be 18 years of age or older, and affiliate to one of the 68 Raupatu Marae who are members of Te Whakakitenga o Waikato Incorporated.
