Kiwikiwi Whanau Charitable Trust
The Kiwikiwi Whanau are the descendants of Remana Kiwikiwi and Arihi Cope.
The Kiwikiwi Whanau Charitable Trust (KKWCT) was set up in 1996 with a broad goal of promoting the educational, economic and cultural advancement of members of the Kiwikiwi whanau, Ngare Hauata Hapu and other extended Nga Puhi tribal members and Maori community in Northland.
The KKWCT has reconnected with and engaged many whanau in trust, hapu and tribal matters over the years. The Trust is keen to capture and share the knowledge of its tupuna and to raise whanau and trustee awareness of tribal lands, taonga and resources.
We engage in projects to promote cultural and environmental sustainability, and the social and economic welfare of our people. We honour the legacy of our tupuna by participating in the affairs of our hapu through Māori Land Trusts administering blocks of land at Te TiiB3, Ngati Hine Forestry, Ngati Rangi and Oromahoe.
