The Cuzzies

Te Rūnanga o Raukawa

The history of Te Rūnanga O Raukawa stems from the Raukawa Marae Trustees (1936) who were legislated to look after the development of the marae matua of Ngāti Raukawa but over time became involved in a broad range of issues that were Iwi wide by nature. This led to the development of Te Kömiti Whakatinana (1985), which was to later become known as Te Rūnanga O Raukawa (1988).
