    Ngāti Whakaue gets our name from 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.

    It was Tutanekai, who raised his people to become the tribal force that we now know as  Ngāti Whakaue. Ngāti Whakaue live on the beautiful southern shores of Lake Rotorua and around the Maketu region of coastal Bay of Plenty.

    Kei raro iho te whakapapa o Tutanekai ratau ko ōna uri, arā, ngāa tupuna o nga hapū Koromātua o Ngāti Whakaue e mohiotia ana inaianei.

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