How the Iwi Hapū names list works


English | Māori

Structure of the file

The structure of the file represents descent-group relationships. Regional groups based on geographical/political boundaries, Waka, and Confederations are top level terms.

Waka, which have cultural symbolism, are included in the file because of their strong association with iwi. The regional groupings were created for similar reasons - they are based on an association with a geographical area (eg Te Taitokerau - Northland).

They are represented as Related Terms because they are inanimate and people are not actually descended from them. The Confederation category, which is a descent relationship, is created to group related iwi together.

Hanganga o te kōnae

E whakaatu ana te hanganga o te kōnae i ngā whanaungatanga i waenga rōpū kāwai. Ko ngā rōpū ā-rohe e ai ki ngā rohenga whenua/tōrangapū, Waka me ngā Whakaminenga he kupu taumata matua ēnei.

Kei roto te Waka, he tohu ahurea kei ēnei, i ngā kōnae nā ngā pānga nui ki ngā iwi. He ōrite anō te take i waihangatia ai ngā rōpū ā-rohe – i ahu mai i te pānga ki tētahi rohe (hei tauira, Te Tai Tokerau).

E whakaaturia ana hei Kupu Hāngai i te mea he popohe ka mutu kāore i heke mai te tangata i ēnei. Ko te rārangi Whakaminenga, he whanaungatanga whakaheke, i waihangatia hei whakarōpū i ngā iwi.
