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.
