What does Te Puni Kōkiri do?

Te Puni Kōkiri (Ministry of Māori Development) is a progressive government agency that works within government and communities to achieve our vision of Thriving Whānau.

We are the Governments principal policy advisor on Māori wellbeing and development.

We influence the work of others by bringing Māori voices to decision makers and we invest in innovative initiatives that build the capacity and readiness of whānau and Māori communities.

To achieve this, we engage with whānau, hapū and iwi, and partner with other public sector agencies.
