The Tribal Register is a register of Maniapoto beneficiaries (ie those of Maniapoto descent).

As at September 2014, the tribal register had 18,845 members (2013: 18,202); an increase of 643 members over the previous 12 months. This increase was predominantly of rangatahi (between the ages of 13 to 25) registered whilst applying for education grants.

The 2013 Census NZ statistics note that 35,358 of Māori in Aotearoa identified as Maniapoto. The figures also tell us that over 80% of the Maniapoto population live outside of the rohe, and that does not include the many tribal members who live abroad, particularly in Australia.

All whānau are encouraged to register on the Tribal Register. By doing so, whānau are registering their entitlement to contribute to Maniapoto key matters and also to participate fully as a tribal beneficiary.

Being on the Maniapoto tribal register is very important because it is our main communication link with you and gives you a direct say in decisions that affect you and your whanau.

The registration forms can be obtained by mail, dropping into our office, or registering online. If you have problems completing your registration please contact us.
