Moriori are the indigenous people of Rekohu/Rangiauria who peopled the islands about 1,000 years ago. There are hokopapa/whakapapa links between Moriori and mainland Maori tribes but their tuakana (elder line) stems directly from Rongomaiwhenua.
Hokotehi Moriori Trust
The Trust is the organisation that represents the Moriori people, the descendants of Rongomaiwhenua and Rongomaitere on the islands of Rekohu and Rangiaotea (Chatham Islands) in New Zealand and elsewhere.
