Our History

Our journey has only just begun…

For the purpose of the Treaty Settlements, the Ngāruahine area of interest extends from the Taungatara Stream at the northern-most boundary to the Waihi Stream at the southern-most boundary. The area also encompasses Egmont National Park, including te Tupuna Koro o Taranaki (Mount Taranaki) and overlaps with Taranaki Iwi (west), Te Atiawa (north), Ngāti Maru (north-east) and Ngāti Ruanui (east).

The negotiation process was managed by Nga Hapu o Ngaruahine Iwi Inc which included establishing Te Korowai o Ngaruahine Trust who at the end of 2016, received the settlement assets and is responsible for managing and growing those assets.”
