The Board comprises one Trustee member from each iwi who is elected every three years. The Board has an executive staff who carry out the policy directions of the Trustees and manage the operations of the Board.
THE BOARD FAMILY
The Board is the iwi authority in Hauraki. It is part of a growing network of iwi and Maori organisations within our tribal rohe. Other groups include regional bodies like:
Te Kaunihera Kaumatua o Hauraki - a group of Hauraki tribal elders
Hauraki Maori District Council, Maori Committee representatives associated with name
Te Korowai Hauora o Hauraki, the tribal health arm of the Board
Te Reo Irirangi o Pare Hauraki, who operate the Board's radio frequencies to promote Te Reo Maori and Tikanga Maori (Maori language and principles) in our area
We have about 20 marae scattered across the region with numerous hapu groups and an increasing number of Te Kohanga Reo (language nests for our mokopuna) and Kura Kaupapa Maori (schools totally immersed in Te Reo).
