Ngāti Rārua Ᾱtiawa Iwi Trust
The Ngāti Rārua Ᾱtiawa Iwi Trust represents a unique group of descendants from two iwi. They whakapapa back to one or more of our 94 Ngati Rarua tupuna and 15 Te Atiawa tupuna. These ancestors are the original landowners of our Motueka homelands. As a trust, we manage and nurture these land holdings on behalf of and for the benefit of all the descendants of the original 109 owners.
We are committed to supporting the mana of the iwi organisations our owners also belong to: the Ngati Rarua Iwi Trust and Te Atiawa Manawhenua ki Te Tau Ihu Trust. We understand the importance of ensuring the success of these organisations and that it will impact positively on all of our owners as a hapu of these iwi.
If you are a registered owner with us, please make sure you are also a registered owner with your relevant iwi trusts.
