Board of Trustees

On 1 February 2014, a Hui-ā-Iwi at Mangamingi Pā called for a new tribal authority, and Uenuku Charitable Trust (UCT) was established.

The UCT Board currently numbers 16 trustees, all of whom have been mandated through formal processes by their hapū, marae, or Wai Claimant, uri or rangatahi groups to represent the interests of the people. The UCT Board holds monthly hui at its offices in Raetihi on the third Sunday of each month. Uri are welcome to attend. Trustees are guided by and represent the views and interests of our people, the descendants of Uenuku (nā Tūkaihoro), Tamakana and Tamahaki.
