About Us

On the 20th March 2021 a hapū hui was held at Rāwhitiroa Marae, where it was decided to gather as Ngā Hapū o Te Ahuahu on a quarterly basis.

Te Ahuahu is located inland Bay of Islands and sits within our wider traditional boundaries of Taiamai. We are sub-tribes of Ngāpuhi which traces its ancestry to our formidable tupuna.


Our oral history has been captured and shared in many places. As hapū descendants, the best place to receive our history is on our marae where we gather, talk and work together.

We do understand that this may be hard or intimidating for many reasons, so we hope that this website acts as an accessible and inviting starting point for your journey back to your hapū.
