Registrations

Whanganui Iwi Register

Ngā Tāngata Tiaki is now responsible for maintaining the Whanganui Iwi Register.

The Whanganui Iwi Register shall include all persons who were registered as members of Whanganui Iwi on any registers maintained by The Whanganui River Māori Trust Board, Te Whiringa Muka Trust and the Pākaitore Trust.

The enrollment process started in the early 1990s so it is likely overtime details may have changed. If you have whānau that have since passed away or there have been additions tamariki/mokopuna please call the office to discuss.

Enrolment forms can be downloaded or obtained either by mail or in person from our office.
