Our Partners

Our Partners

We work with organisations around Aotearoa to make it happen. 

Mana Whenua 

In Te Whanganui-a-Tara, we work in partnership with Mana Whenua, including:

  • Taranaki Whānui ki Te Upoko o Te Ika (Taranaki Whānui)
  • Ngāti Toa Rangatira

We operate in several areas outside Wellington, including Whanganui, Wairarapa and Marlborough, and we’ll be working to build our relationships with mana whenua in these areas in future.  

I herea retoria te wapu​​​​​​​: Te honohono hoki o Te Whanganui a Tara nei ki ngā iwi noho, ki Te Atiawa, Taranaki Whānui. E mau whakapūmau ana te tāone nui o Pōneke me ngā wāhi e karapoti ai I te hītori me te kaitiakitanga ake tonu atu.

Te Port is deeply connected: Wellington's natural harbour has always been deeply connected to its people. Māori communities - Te Atiawa, Taranaki Iwi, Ngati Tama and Ngati Ruahui - our city, and surrounding regions all share its rich history and ongoing guardianship.
