Ng?i Tai ki Tamaki
Iwi (tribe) in M?oridom

Ng?i Tai ki T?maki is a M?ori tribe that is based in the area around Clevedon, part of the Auckland region (T?maki in the M?ori language). It is one of the twelve members of the Hauraki Collective of tribes.[1]

The founding ancestors of Ng?i Tai ki T?maki came to New Zealand in the Tainui migration canoe and left it when it was dragged across the portage from the Tamaki River to the Manukau Harbour.[2] Their descendants occupied parts of the Hauraki Gulf, including east Auckland as far inland as Otara and Maungarei, as well as Clevedon, Maraetai and Howick. Te Irirangi Drive, a major highway in Manukau City, is named after one of their rangatira (chiefs), Tara Te Irirangi.

Ng?i Tai has a marae at Umupuia Beach, between Maraetai and Clevedon.[3][4] They also use the Ng?ti Tamaoho marae at Karaka.[5]

In 2015 the Crown settled with Ng?i Tai ki T?maki over historic grievances, including both financial and cultural compensation.[6]
