    Whakawhiti o te rā Whakaāio whenua

    Mai i Waimihia ki Waingaehe, Te Kuraeoteihuo Tamatekapua

    Ko Ngōngōtahā te maunga

    Ko Te Rotoruanui-a-Kahumatamomoe te moana

    Ko Te Papaiouru te marae

    Ko Ngāti Whakaue te iwi

    Ko Te Arawa te waka

    Ngāti Whakaue is named for our ancestor, Whakaue Kaipapa.

    Whakaue was a recognised and well respected leader amongst his people. He was a direct descendant of Tamatekapua through his father Uenukukōpako.

    He was also the father of many tupuna who themselves have iwi named after them such as Ngāti Rangiwewehi, Ngāti Ngāraranui and many others.

    However, our links to Ngāti Whakaue connect more closely with the youngest son of Whakaue, Tutanekai and his descendents.

    Ngāti Whakaue live on the beautiful southern shores of Lake Rotorua and around the Maketu region of coastal Bay of Plenty.

    We, the uri of Ngāti Whakaue, share our blood, our links, our whakapapa from these tupuna. Mauri ora!
