Ko Kahuranaki te maunga
Ko Ngaruroro te awa
Ko Waipatu te marae
Ko Ngāti Hawea, Ngāti Hori ngā hapū
Ko Takitimu te waka
Ko Ngāti Kahungunu te iwi
Ko Ngahiwi Tomoana tōku ingoa
Following the Kahungunu Fisheries settlement in 2006 Ngahiwi has led the charge of directing resources to hapū through Treaty settlements, not achieved by any other Iwi. The results are outstanding with over $120 million in assets for Iwi and another $500 million plus in settlements to hapū, a massive quantum in comparison with other Iwi.
As the mandated leader of Ngati Kahungunu for the past 23 years Ngahiwi has focussed on benefits to whanau. It's a mammoth task but in so doing Ngati Kahungunu has increased assets, capability, employment, commercial business ventures both nationally and internationally. Ngati Kahungunu Iwi Incorporated has influenced change in local authorities, health, education and social services.
He is honoured to be the chair is continues to lead the charge on furthering benefits to members in housing, pataka kai, creation of wealth opportunities in land, fish and commercial ventures.
