Decision makers

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.
