Tiakina ō na putea, ō na Whenua I tukua;
Ma tē poari te nei puaupapa. Nui e ehai ake nei:
Ka kō rerotia ki ō na rō pū Honohono;
Ka whakaha ere ō ne take. Katoa I te pono;
Ka whanaketia tō na oha ki. I tukua mo ngā rōpū.
Honohono, mō ngā uri e.

To guard/protect the financial resources and land holdings it has received. It is for the Board in its pursuits to:

  • Liaise with its affiliated groups;
  • Manage its affairs transparently and truthfully; and
  • Advance the legacy it holds in stewardship for affiliated groups and descendants of this and future generations.



This website provides you access to information about Rakiura, the Rakiura Māori Lands Trust and its activities as the Land Administrator of most of the Māori land on Rakiura (Stewart Island), New Zealand.

The Rakiura Māori Lands Trust (RMLT) is the largest private landowner outside of the New Zealand government on Rakiura. The Trust holds these lands in trust for many of the Rakiura Māori descendants, (the Indigenous inhabitants of the island), the history of whom goes back over 700 years. RMLT has a rich history with this very unique and beautiful island paradise, which is the third largest Island of New Zealand.

Over time we will be building a resource of information for you to access about Rakiura and the activities of the Trust along with its current and historical association with the island. We hope you will find this site useful and we look forward to your feedback on how we can better deliver a useful and valuable service.  For a further overview of Stewart Island follow this link to Wikipedia Rakiura (Stewart Island).
