Record your  Hapu to the database

Recording your Hapu to the Hapu Database is optional. Doing so publicly reaffirms the hapu authority status tentatively. Reaffirmation of the Hapu by recording the Hapu to database is a necessary stage in establishing the Hapu Authority. Only hapu on the database records can be recognised as a Hapu Native Council where the authority is recognised by New Zealand Law.
