Whānau ki te whenua

Haere whenua atu, hoki whenua mai...
Whenua Māori

Māori Land is described by Crown entities as a tangible whakapapa link for owners and their whānau, hapū and iwi and made up of Māori customary land interests converted to freehold title.

Whenua Māori (Māori Land) is more than that, it is taonga tuku iho to Māori and kaitiakitanga of our whenua spans the width and breadth of Aotearoa. Whenua Māori is not restricted to partitioned or amalgamated blocks of land with multiple owners as tenants in common.

Whenua forms our cultural identity shown through our pepeha and numerous whānau, hapū and iwi affiliations. As the population increases, our people move overseas and our generations expand, it becomes more and more difficult to manage land and affiliated interests. With management structures put in place, it is more important than ever to connect (or reconnect), to engage, be informed and ensure that future generations remain connected.

Whakapapa is the umbilical cord that binds us to the whenua. Genealogy provides a pathway to connect and the disconnected to reconnect to their tūrangawaewae.


No matter what we do, how we do it or who we work with to get there, our foundational project (Māori Land Information) is the primary tool we use to keep everybody together. This enables connections to be made over time and for these connections to be passed on in an effort to maintain relationships through generations.

We develop and collaborate on projects that support and encourage individuals to connect & participate with a view of creating generational impact.
