Welcome to the Office for Māori Crown Relations - Te Arawhiti

In 2018 Cabinet agreed to establish an agency to oversee the Government’s work with Māori in a post Treaty settlement era. The Office for Māori Crown Relations - Te Arawhiti (Te Arawhiti) will help facilitate this. Te Arawhiti brings together several government rōpū, including the Māori Crown Relations Rōpū, the Treaty Settlements Rōpū, the Takutai Moana Rōpū and the Settlement Commitments Rōpū.

Our Strategy

Our strategy focuses on three foundations of partnership that will help shape the Māori Crown relationship – Reset, Sustain, and Build

These foundations have informed our strategic priorities for the next four years, giving us a clear direction to support the public sector and communities in progressing true Treaty partnership.
