Tangata whenua

Tauranga City Council works in partnership with tangata whenua to build, protect and celebrate our city, our environment and our people. 

The name Tauranga means safe anchor or resting place. Te Awanui, meaning 'big tributary', is the original name of the harbour. There are three main iwi living in the Tauranga Moana rohe: Ngati Ranginui, Ngai Te Rangi and Ngati Pukenga. We work with iwi, hapu and whanau across the area in various ways and forums.
