  • to assist iwi in planning social and economic developments
  • to assist Waitangi Tribunal decisions on land ownership, fishing rights, etc
  • to assist central, regional, and local government agencies planning and providing services to iwi in areas such as housing, health, social welfare, and special assistance programmes
  • to assist local government in the administration of the Resource Management Act 1991.

Classification of iwi

Iwi is a hierarchical classification with two levels.

Level 1 represents Iwi region (rohe) and is to be used for summary purposes only, and does not imply any future or present confederation of Iwi. Level 2 shows individual Iwi.

Level 1 has 14 categories and level 2 has 128 categories – excluding residual categories. The residual categories are defined in Glossary and references.
