Rohe map for Ngāti Tūwharetoa.

This rohe map is based on the Area of Interest agreed between Ngāti Tūwharetoa and the Crown in the Deed of Settlement signed on 08 July 2017. Ngāti Tūwharetoa Area of Interest from the Deed of Settlement [PDF, 552KB].

The Ngāti Tūwharetoa tribal territory is in the central North Island, around the Lake Taupō 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 Ngāti Tūwharetoa living in the Moawhango, Bulls and Tokorangi areas. There is a saying in Ngāti Tūwharetoa: ‘Ko te tomokanga o te iwi ki te tonga, ki Tokorangi’ (the gateway to Tūwharetoa in the south is at Tokorangi). [note: Tokorangi is 8 km east of Marton]

There are several sub-tribes of Ngāti Tūwharetoa which have grouped under two names:

Te Matapuna: these people live in the south of Motutaiko, the island in Lake Taupō, 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.
