We invite all Ngāti Rangitihi to register with Te Mana o Ngāti Rangitihi Trust. As a member you can:
- Apply to Te Mana o Ngāti Rangitihi Charitable Trust for funding support
- Get hunting access to the Kaingaroa and Rotoehu forests through a recreational access permit
- Vote in Trustee elections
Validating Your Whakapapa
Your application will be validated if you can whakapapa to the tupuna Rangiaohia and Rakauheketara, through the tupuna Mahi and Rangitihikahira. If you are having difficulty with your whakapapa please contact the Trust Office on 07 322 2452.
Accessing Your Records
There is restricted access to the Iwi Register – it is a taonga and includes whakapapa which the Trust does not have authority to release. No iwi organisation or government agency has the ability to release this information.
Any individual iwi member may, however, access a copy of their own information by contacting the Trust’s Office Manager who will supply the information in either electronic form or by post. Registered adult members may also visit the office to view the list of names of other registered adult members. This right is only to look at the register of names and does not extend to taking a copy of, or otherwise recording, any names.
