The Hauraki Maori Trust Board
History or background of award
The Hauraki Māori Trust Board was borne out of a desire of the Hauraki people to use their collective strength as whanau, hapu, Iwi to effectively influence decisions being made about their future and environment. In the absence of legislation, which properly recognised the status of Iwi and their collective aspirations, Board was legislated under the Māori Trust Boards Act.
The Hauraki Maori Trust Board reserves the right to use your name, photo and other details for publicity and promotional purposes.
