First, you need your own email address. So, if you don’t have an email address, or you share one with whānau, you’ll need to set up a new one.
Once you have an email address, you can fill out the YourIwi online form of your chosen iwi group. You’ll just need to know the full name of at least one of your parents and grandparents. If you know more than that, ka rawe!
You can upload any supporting documents (e.g. birth certificate) but if you don’t have them, kei te pai.
Each iwi and hapū group has their own requirements for verifying your whakapapa. They will contact you individually if they need more information to get you registered.
