We are the only iwi-owned Māori health research centre in Aotearoa.

Our Values
Ngā Tikanga

As the only iwi-owned Māori health research centre in Aotearoa New Zealand, we work under the direct guidance of a governance board of elected iwi members who further strengthen the ties between Whakauae and Ngāti Hauiti.
Our values, Ngā Tikanga o Whakauae, are inherently linked to the values of our founders Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Hauiti. They provide an essential guide to our conduct with internal and external stakeholders, funders or commissioners of research, partners, and research participants.
