Who We Are


To grow a prosperous, healthy, vibrant, innovative and culturally strong iwi


To build the capacity for our people and grow the prosperity of our whanau will remain the driving force behind all our efforts

Waikato-Tainui is a leading tribal organisation responsible for developing and implementing initiatives which improve iwi outcomes in the areas of education, employment, tribal preservations, marae development, health and wellbeing and environmental and resource management.
Guided by Whakatupuranga 2050 (our long-term blueprint for cultural, social and economic advancement for our people), the Waikato-Tainui Careers Centre recently opened in 2016 as a result of the tribe’s working relationship with the Ministry of Social Development.
We are committed to empowering our people to create better futures for themselves and their whanau by supporting them in their career aspirations and development.
