Rohe mini-map for Waikato. Tainui / Tāmaki

Waikato

Recognised iwi in the Māori Fisheries Act 2004. Recognised iwi in the Māori Fisheries Act 2004

Population: 40,083 (does not include any of 11,697 "Tainui but iwi not specified")

Rohe map for Waikato.

Tainui’s mana extended over much of the northern half of the central North Island. Ngati Maniapoto’s traditional lands encompassed the expansive King Country, much of which was traditionally known as Te Nehe-nehe-nui (the great forest).

The western coastline forms the boundary from south of Kawhia down to the Mokau district. It was here that the Tainui canoe landed, and its anchor can still be seen there today.

The northern margins extended to Lake Ngaroto. The eastern side runs along the Rangitoto and Hurakia ranges, with the Tuhua Ranges forming part of the southern boundary.
