This funding programme exists to protect the natural integrity of Māori land and preserve mātauranga Māori.


Ngā Whenua Rāhui offers two funds, Ngā Whenua Rāhui and Mātauranga Kura Taiao.

The Ngā Whenua Rāhui Fund provides protection for Māori landowners through the use of 25 year renewable kawenata (covenants). 

The Mātauranga Kura Taiao Fund seeks to preserve the customs, history and stories associated with Māori land and tikanga.
