Māori hold contractual treaties with over sixty international countries, and many of these countries have records that they traded with the Māori nation under the seal of GAT (General Agreement in Trade) and a Māori sovereign bank, called the ‘Awaroa’. This means Māori have direct access to these countries if approved by those who hold the mandate. Descendants of those lineage lines who negotiated, pioneered and sealed these contracts still exist, and through whakapapa (geneology), continue to hold the mandate to these authorities within an organisation called Ko Huiarau.
The Ko Huiarau vision is to work as a partnership alongside the Ngāti Wikitoria (Non-Māori who arrived in Aotearoa after Te Tiriti o Waitangi or the Treaty of Waitangi).
Ko Huiarau can proceed when 1% of Hapu have registered.
Hokioi, the tapu manu (sacred bird) of the Taiopuru. This giant prehistoric eagle was the largest in the world and only existed in Aotearoa. The colours of the manu were adopted to represent the Taiopuru lines.
