Te Rūnanga o Ngā Toa Āwhina

Maori members of PSA

A voice for Maori members

Maori hold a unique place in New Zealand society as tangata whenua (indigenous people) with a special status conferred by the nation’s founding document, Te Tiriti ō Waitangi. Te Tiriti ō Waitangi is recognised by the PSA (Te Pūkenga Here Tikanga Mahi) through Te Rūnanga o Ngā Toa Āwhina – the national body representing the interests of Maori members.
