Website outage

Our website will be down for essential maintenance from 3.00pm Wed 27 March until the afternoon of Thurs 28 March (at the latest) – we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Connecting with your iwi

Over the decades many people have moved away from their rohe/marae. Thanks to the wonders of modern technology you can stay connected through the different iwi websites. It is important to register so that they can keep in touch and to ensure eligibility to any membership benefits.

There are different types of funding options available to Māori students and we can help find the best option for you.

To access Iwi funding for tertiary education you need to be registered as a descendant. Registration forms for individual Iwi are listed below.

If you need help finding out which iwi you belong to or iwi endorsement details, please contact us at tepunakaowheo@op.ac.nz
