NZ Maori Wardens – Our Local Hero’s


NZ Maori Wardens – Our Unsung Heroes

Every year more than a million Kiwis volunteer in our community. They are the backbone of our non-profit organisations, which keep our country running – literally. They offer their time and expertise in emergency services, working with the homeless, youth at risk, caring for people and animals that would be lost without them.

About Us

The general functions of the New Zealand Māori Council are set out in the Māori Community Development Act 1962. This Act conveys the Council’s purpose and gives us the framework in which we operate.

Our Team

The NZ Māori Council is spearheaded by elected representatives from each Māori District. From within this national body, representatives are elected to advance the goals of the NZ Māori Council.

Our History

  • NZ Māori Council's rich and unique history can be traced back to the Kotahitanga movement and the Māori parliaments in the 1800s.
