Rohe map for Ngāti Tūwharetoa.

The Ngati Tuwharetoa tribal territory is in the central North Island, around the Lake Taupo water catchment area. The boundaries are:

North – near Mihi’s bridge south of Reporoa;
West – Titiraupenga, the Hauhungaroa Ranges and south-west to Taumarunui;
East – the Kaimanawa Ranges; and
South – Tongariro National Park.

There are also many families of Ngati Tuwharetoa living in the Moawhango, Bulls and Tokorangi areas. There is a saying in Ngati Tuwharetoa: ‘Ko te tomokanga o te iwi ki te tonga, ki Tokorangi’ (the gateway to Tuwharetoa in the south is at Tokorangi).

There are several sub-tribes of Ngati Tuwharetoa which have grouped under two names:

Te Matapuna: these people live in the south of Motutaiko, the island in Lake Taupo, and on the lake’s southern shores. Their name indicates that they are the source of tribal life.

Te Hikuwai: these groups are north of Motutaiko. Their name means ‘the reservoir’, as they live where the waters of the lake join the Waikato River.
