    Korekore Tuatahi

  • Kōrerotia Te Reo

    Haere mai e te Rākau a Whakatau kia mihia koe e tō rahi, e whai nei i ō tapuwae

    Come hither oh great warriors so you may be greeted by us that follow your footsteps
  • Ko wai mātou

    Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei are the tangata whenua of Te Kahu Tōpuni o Tuperiri, central Tāmaki Makaurau. We as tangata whenua hold mana over the land and sea being underpinned by take tupuna (ancestral relationships), take raupatu (taking of the land and sea by traditional warfare), ahi kā (unbroken occupation) and tuku whenua (traditional gifting of land). 

  • He hononga e kore e whati, he hononga e kore e riro.

    We hold firm to our mana motuhake, history, culture, identity and language. Consisting of approximately 7000 registered whānau members, we celebrate our direct lineage from our common tupuna Tuperiri and the legacy our many tūpuna have left behind. This legacy is what has enabled our strong and everlasting connection to our whenua, our rohe and to each other. 

  • Ko Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei e ngunguru nei.
