Iwi Data & Administrators

Te Whata has been developed by iwi to support iwi – to deliberate, make decisions and plan for more positive futures – to exercise your own mana motuhake.

The data on this site is collected according to the statistical Iwi Classification. If your iwi is on the Classification, then your data will appear on Te Whata. Te Kāhui Raraunga Charitable Trust does not own the data itself, just the site. The data belongs to you.

The base data displayed on Te Whata is either sourced from publicly available data, government administrative data or from the Integrated Data Infrastructure (IDI) according to the Iwi Classification. We have been working with agencies to make this data available through Te Whata for iwi to visualise and use.

We have designed the page to allow Iwi Administrators for each iwi to tailor and customise the pages for each iwi on Te Whata – to tailor the narrative and appearance of your page, to prioritise indicators and include their own strategic aims and goals. To become an Iwi Administrator, Authorities will be asked to nominate a representative who will hold and steward their page through a Iwi Administrator Terms of Use agreement with Te Kāhui Raraunga Charitable Trust.

Please note that you do not need to be a member of the National Iwi Chairs Forum to nominate an Iwi Administrator. This tool is for all iwi.

If iwi have more than one Authority, then we respectfully request that the Authorities resolve this and that the Authorities jointly nominate the Iwi Administrator.

If any Iwi are absolutely opposed to the inclusion of their data on Te Whata, please contact us [email protected] and we will hide the page. If there is any dispute between Iwi members and authorities, we respectfully request that this be resolved within and by the Iwi.
