The Ngāti Paoa Iwi Trust is the representative body that serves the interests of Ngāti Paoa. The Trust plays a vital role in advocating for the rights, welfare, and development of the Ngāti Paoa people. It is the Post Settlement Governance Entity for the iwi, designed to hold Treaty settlement assets the Crown provides as redress for the iwi's historical grievances, and to help support the iwi's cultural, financial, and social aspirations. The Trust also works to protect and preserve the cultural heritage of Ngāti Paoa, promote education and language revitalisation, foster community engagement, and support economic development initiatives.
Through their governance and stewardship, the Ngāti Paoa Iwi Trust strives to empower and enhance the well-being of its iwi members.
