Relationships

Ngai Te Ahi acknowledges the boundary overlaps and interests of other Ngati Ranginui and Ngai Te Rangi hapu in the Ohauiti, Kaitemako, Waimapu, Waoku and Taumata areas.


Ngai Te Ahi has always shared much of the region and its resources with close kin and whanaunga from neighbouring hapu.

The extent of inter‐marriage is such that the people of Ngai Te Ahi today share strong blood links with many hapu in Tauranga Moana including Ngati He, Ngati Tapu, Ngati Ruahine, Ngai Tamarawaho, Ngati Hangarau and Ngati Kahu.
These links and many others have endured and remain strong to this day.
For Ngai Te Ahi, it is the whakapapa of the people to the land that remains paramount to our interests in these areas.
