Huria Trust has a strong reputation with over 25 years of service to the Tauranga & Western Bay Communities. First established in 1986 by ngā Kaumatua o Ngai Tamarāwaho hapū.

Ngā Kaumatua o Ngai Tamarāwaho created Huria Trust to umbrella and strengthen the tribal activities, which at that time were centred around the rebuilding of our wharenui ‘Tamatea Pokaiwhenua”.

In May 2000, Huria Trust became an Incorporated Society, and was approved charitable status in that same year.
