Aotearoa – Iwi and Rohe Profiles

Nāu mai ki Te Whakahura a Kupe, ko tā Te Puni Kōkiri whārangi ipurangi hei whakaatu i ngā tatauranga motuhake a ia iwi, puta noa i Aotearoa. He tātaritanga tēnei a te tūnga a ngā kāwai Māori e noho tonu ana ki ēnei motu. I ahu mai ngā nama i Te Kautetanga a te Kāwanatanga i tono ai i te tau 2013 me te tau 2006. Ko te tūmanako ka whai hua koutou i ngā kaupapa e kitea mai ana i konei.

Welcome to our socio-demographic profile of New Zealand Iwi and Rohe. The profile provides an analysis of the Māori descent population of New Zealand, based on results from the 2013 and 2006 Censuses of Population and Dwellings.

Individual profiles are available for each of 98 iwi across New Zealand, and 6 rohe covering New Zealand based on Te Puni Kōkiri’s administrative regions.

The name ‘Te Whakahura a Kupe’ speaks to the spirit of discovery, as embodied by the celebrated explorer Kupe. Many oral traditions say Kupe came from Hawaiki and discovered Aotearoa; he explored the country and bestowed place names from Te Whanga-Nui-a-Tara (Wellington), throughout the North Island, all the way to Hokianga.

How can these Iwi and Rohe profiles help you?

These profiles can be used to build a powerful story about iwi and rohe characteristics and how they are changing over time. They can provide an evidence base to better allocate resources and manage assets to meet changing demands, and therefore build confidence in decision making.

For example, your iwi might wish to develop a Māori Language Plan. You might use the information about how many of your iwi currently speak Māori to set some targets. You might use the age of your iwi to work out where best to allocate resources, or use the information to enhance funding requests and help those who advocate for Māori.
