Kia tuupara te hoe kia tau ki te pae!

Paddle the waka together to reach the new horizon!

The Tainui Group is grounded in the significance of the hoe (paddle) to Waikato-Tainui. Hoe steered the great Tainui waka on its journey to Aotearoa. It is symbolic of the courage of our tupuna in forging a new future, and it signifies the close affinity of our iwi to the Waikato River and our identity as river people.

In 2003, the Waikato Tainui tribe established TGH as a commercial entity to manage their investment and create economic opportunities for their iwi. Since then, TGH has grown to become one of the largest Maaori businesses in New Zealand, with a focus on sustainable and long-term growth.
