The Ngāti Tamaoho Trust

The Ngāti Tamaoho Trust was officially registered in 1991 and is a Charitable Trust. All Trustees are from Mangatangi, Whātapaka and Ngā Hau e Whā Marae. The Ngāti Tamaoho Trust is the mandated management group of the people of Tamaoho. The Board has the responsibility to govern, develop and protect the interests of its people and to be kaitiaki in their tribal boundaries (kaitiakitanga is guardianship).

The Trust is accountable for the responsibility of and ensuring that all Maunga (mountains), Ngāhere (forests), Awa (rivers), Motu (islands), Moana (foreshore) and Wāhi tapu (sacred places) within the rohe of Ngāti Tamaoho in our tribal boundaries are safeguarded and nurtured. This will be an on-going joint responsibility for the Trust and our people.

Over the years there have been many developments and activities, one of which is the development of the Trust. The Trust underwent a review of its systems and one part of the process was to be more transparent and be more open with Ngāti Tamaoho members.

One way which the Trust is doing this is through having Elections for its Trustees at the Annual General Meeting (AGM). The people will make the choice for the people they want to see on the Trust representing them and making choices for the future of Tamaoho.
