Te Manawhenua Forum

Council and Iwi representatives formed the Te Manawhenua Forum mō Matamata-Piako (a standing committee of Council) to ensure Māori have the opportunity to participate in decision making in our district.

The Te Manawhenua Forum mō Matamata-Piako considers any matters relating to the social, economic, environmental and cultural wellbeing of Māori communities, both today and for the future. The Te Manawhenua Forum mō Matamata-Piako has input into developing policies, such as the Our Community Our Future plan, District Plan and other special projects.

The Te Manawhenua Forum mō Matamata-Piako meets four times a year and is made up of representatives from Council, Ngāti Hauā, Ngāti Rāhiri-Tumutumu, Raukawa, Ngāti Maru, Ngāti Whanaunga, Ngāti Pāoa and Ngāti Hinerangi. Ngāti Tamaterā also have the ability to join the Te Manawhenua Forum mo Matamata-Piako.
