Ngāti Mākino Iwi Authority

Ngā Uri o Mākino

In 2011 Ngāti Mākino achieved an agreement on the settlement of its claim under Te Tiriti o Waitangi. In ratifying the settlement, iwi members agreed to form a new Post-Settlement Governance Entity (PSGE) to plan, direct and oversee the use of the assets to be received under the settlement for the benefit of Ngāti Mākino.

The approved PSGE requires the formation of a new governance Trust, the Ngāti Mākino Iwi Authority.  Once the Crown has passed legislation to confirm the settlement, the Iwi Authority will head a group of companies and a trust that will each have a special role in restoring the mana and fortunes of Ngāti Mākino.

The Ngāti Mākino Iwi Authority was primarily established to receive manage and administer the settlement assets received by the Crown

The trust was established to plan and deliver, health, social, educational, environmental and cultural benefits to nga uri on behalf of the Ngāti Mākino Iwi Authority as the Post Settlement Governance Entity
