He Kura Ka Huna, He Kura Ka Whākina, E Koropupū ana te Wai Ora!

Kāinga I Home: Welcome

Te Kāhui Raraunga Charitable Trust (Te Kāhui Raraunga or TKR) is an independent body established in 2019 to lead the action required to realise the advocacy of the Data Iwi Leaders Group (Data ILG). TKR’s aim is to enhance the social, cultural, environmental, and economic well-being of Māori; to enable iwi, hapū and whānau Māori to access, collect and use Māori data to measure and identify areas of Māori well-being requiring change; to support innovation and research that advances the use of Māori data; to educate Māori on the benefits of collection and use of Māori data; and to promote and advance opportunities for iwi, hapū and whānau Māori to share knowledge and information relating to collection and use of Māori data.

The Data ILG was originally established in 2016 in response to the increasing need for iwi to better harness the potential of data to enable iwi development and to advance data and digital kaupapa with the Crown.  Data ILG aims to ensure full and free access and control over data about and for iwi, to empower iwi development. Presently, the Data ILG consists of six Chairs from Te Arawa, Ngāti Porou, Te Whānau-a-Apanui, Ngāti Rangi, Waikato-Tainui, Ngāti Korokii-Kahukura and Ngāpuhi. Three of these Chairs are trustees on the TKR Board.

TKR have an established Mana Ōrite relationships with Statistics New Zealand and Department of Internal Affairs, through which both organisations advance specific kaupapa in relation to iwi and Māori data. The relationship is based on the principal of equal explanatory power, so that both parties acknowledge and accept that each other’s perspectives, knowledge systems and world views are equally valid. The relationship is in addition to, and not a substitute for, the broader Māori-Crown relationship, including with individual iwi and hapū.

TKR is in discussions with other government agencies and private enterprises to explore the potential for other Mana Ōrite relationships.
