Mäori Land and it's governance


Welcome to Whenua.net and MaoriLand.net, a site dedicated to better governance of Maori land.

There is an overview of key issues in relation to the governance of Mäori land and a comprehensive Guide presented as a screen viewing only PDF file.  This has hyperlinks to all the legislative references so the reader can easily see the relevant clause of an Act or Regulation.

 Click here to see the latest version.

The major part of the Guide has been created from the Mäori Land Court booklet series.  These booklets include:


Mäori Incorporations


Mäori Land Trusts




Duties of Trustees


Transferring Mäori Land share


In addition to the information, we are developing a series of web-based forms and Excel based administration tools. This will include a cash-book, share/beneficiary register and meeting documentation templates. We have also linked up with third party services such as Employment Advocacy and document distribution services (printing, copying, enveloping and mail-out).  Provided an Excel file of names, addresses and other details can be supplied, all meeting documentation can be personalized thereby streamlining the administration of meeting.

Also as part of our service we can upload meeting documents that can be accessed upon request for a URL link. For this we have registered www.panui.info.


Any comments or questions, email inquiry@whenua.net

Note: The site is continually being updated so please come back.
