Ngāti Mākino Group

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 Ngati Makino Heritage Trust (the Trust) is 100% owned by the Ngati Makino Iwi Authority (NMIA). The operations of the Trust are governed by its Deed of Trust, a Statement of Corporate Intent agreed to with its shareholder, the Charities Act and its amendments, the Trustees Act 1957 and its amendments and general Trust Law.

The Ngāti Mākino Iwi Authority was primarily established to receive, manage and administer the Ngāti Mākino Iwi Authority Assets on behalf of and for the benefit of present and future Ngāti Mākino beneficiaries.

Ngāti Mākino Assets Limiteds mission is to increase the wealth of Ngati Makino in a manner consistent with the Authority’s kaupapa and mandate
