Welcome to the Home Page of the Kiwikiwi Whanau Charitable Trust
The descendants of Remana Kiwikiwi and Arihi Cope have set up this Trust to support the educational, economic and cultural welfare of the Kiwikiwi whanau, Ngare Hauata hapu and extended Nga Puhi tribal members.
We honour the legacy of our tupuna by participating in the affairs of our hapu through Maori Land Trust Boards administering blocks of land at Te TiiB3, Ngati Hine Forestry Trust, Ngati Rangi Trust and Oromahoe Trust.
We meet regularly to further our knowledge of our tikanga Ngare Hauata, as well as for Trust business. All extended whanau are welcome at these meetings.
Ko Pouerua te maunga

Ko Nga-toki-mata-whao-rua te waka
