Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Mutunga

Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Mutunga is the governance body which owns and administers our collective assets for the benefit of Ngāti Mutunga.

The Rūnanga is a Trust consisting of five (5) elected representatives drawn from the adult registered members (being registered descendants of Ngāti Mutunga tūpuna or nga Uri o nga tūpuna o Ngāti Mutunga). The Rūnanga operates according to an Iwi agreed set of rules called the Charter.

The Rūnanga owns and administers the assets through three subsidiary entities, a company (Maruehi Fisheries Ltd), an investment trust (Ngāti Mutunga Investment charitable Trust), and a community development trust (Ngāti Mutunga Community Development Charitable Trust).
