Organisational Structure

The Ngāti Mutunga group of entities consists of Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Mutunga and its subsidiary entities, the Ngāti Mutunga Community Development Trust, Ngāti Mutunga Investment Trust and Maruehi Fisheries Ltd.

This structure was developed during the Treaty negotiations to manage and grow the settlement assets for the benefit of Iwi members. The structure is in the process of being established through the transition process. Once this structure is fully established the Rūnanga will delegate authority to the subsidiary entities to manage certain assets on its behalf.

Each subsidiary will be a separate legal entity in its own right operating according to its own guiding Charter. The Rūnanga and subsidiary entities will agree how the Rūnanga assets will be managed through Statements of Intent.

H30 and BEYOND

In 2012 the Pā Trustees and members of the Iwi were involved in a strategic planning P.A.T.H.  P.A.T.H stands for Planning Alternative Tomorrow with Hope and that is exactly what the Iwi have been doing through this process. The PATHway strategic planning has been called H30. Highway 3 to the year 2030.

It has focused on the iwi and pā trustees on the pathway to 2030. By taking the dreams and aspirations that were shared and working backwards in time to identify goals and benchmarks that will need to be in place for our dream to happen.
