Hapu Communities

The Ngai Te Rangi Settlement Trust is founded on its 11 Hapu Communities. This applies particularly in the case of trustee elections and financial distributions to hapu communities.

Trustee Elections

Each of the 11 Hapu Communities elect a trustee to NST and TRONIT in accordance with the process set out in the Ngai Te Rangi Settlement Trust Deed. The election rules prescribe that for the purpose of voting, a member must register their Hapu Community of ‘first preference’ and can only vote in the election of a trustee for that Hapu Community.

A rotation policy ensures that Trustees are up for election every 3 years. Once elected, the trustees are responsible for the administration of the Trust’s assets for the benefit of the present and future members of Ngāi Te Rangi.

Financial Distributions

Each of the 11 Hapu Communities set up a trust to receive distributions from NST, amongst other things. Those trusts each receive a share of an initial $2 million fund that has been set aside for hapu community development.

From 2016, Hapu Trusts (on behalf of the Hapu Community) will receive a share of 40% of the annual available income of NST. The value of the payments to each Hapu Trust will be determined by the number of adult registered members of the Hapu Community as a percentage of the total number of adult registered members of Ngai Te Rangi.
